TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2020 BMW 5-Series is the goldilocks mid-sizer with a roundel on the hood: comfortable, powerful, and luxurious. The 2020 Lexus GS is a stylish, sporty sedan for nonconformists. It's good to be the king: There's a reason the 2020 Mercedes-Benz E-Class family of cars still rules the mid-size luxury roost.
