The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

7.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2017 BMW 5-Series may do for tech sedans what turn-of-the-century 5-Series did for sport sedans. The 2017 Lexus GS offers excellent handling, handsome looks, and a variety of powerplants, all at prices generally lower than its German competition.
