TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2017 Lexus GS offers excellent handling, handsome looks, and a variety of powerplants, all at prices generally lower than its German competition. With the 2017 E-Class, Mercedes-Benz is pushing the boundaries of its autonomous driving technology, and backing it up with S-Class style.
