TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 BMW M5 is the king of the 5-Series mountain, which isn't a bad place to be. It just may not be king of the sports sedan mountain anymore. The 2016 Lexus GS F rivals the Germans for top-level handling, but hybrids and the turbo-four GS 200t pack fewer thrills. The 2016 Mercedes-Benz E-Class offers elegant comfort and luxury in several flavors, with a thrifty diesel and a high-performance V-8 for those at either end of the spectrum.
