The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.8
8.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
With sharp handling, scorching performance, and decent comfort, the 2013 Infiniti M sedans are bold and beautiful but not overwrought. The new F Sport turns up the heat just a little bit, but you'll still savor the 2013 Lexus LS more for its interior appointments and luxurious long-distance comfort than for its performance.
