TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2018 BMW 7-Series is a plush ride with plenty of powertrain options and customizable features that places it among the full-size greats. The 2018 Lexus LS 500 sedans don’t reach for the same performance limits as the LC coupes, but there’s ambition in every line. The 2018 Mercedes-Benz continues to push the envelope for comfort. safety, and autonomous driving aids, while improving upon its effortless power and dignified road manners.
