The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
8.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Lexus GS has more distinction and better handling to match improved connectivity; even so, it's still playing catch-up. What, me worry? The Mercedes-Benz E-Class reasserts its alpha status with a tighter forehead, a greener turbodiesel, and a pair of all-wheel-drive AMGs.
