The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
9.2
8.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 BMW 7-Series is exceptionally quick and technologically advanced, but also very luxurious and wonderfully comfortable. You can add a welcome dose of fun to the LS chassis with the F-Sport trim, but Lexus' flagship remains a big, comfortable sedan at its core.
