The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Lexus ES is the one of the best luxury cars for those who still have practical considerations like back-seat space and ride comfort; and the 300h Hybrid model is quite the counterpoint to much more expensive 'green luxury' models. Little has changed with the 2015 Lincoln MKS; it continues to offer understated and reserved luxury with an available high-power turbocharged engine option that spices things up somewhat, at least in a straight line.
