The Car Connection's Take

TCC Rating

7.6
7.0

TCC’s Bottom Line

The 2020 BMW 7-Series has a much bigger grille, but behind it is a posh, powerful, thirsty luxury sedan that’s loaded with tech. The 2020 Lexus LS is a throwback cruiser with edgy, space-age looks, though the hybrid version is unbeatable as a road-tripper.
