The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 Lexus LS sedans are the flagships of the Lexus lineup, and they're at their best as comfortable, quiet luxury cruisers. For the 2016 model year, Audi's A8 focuses in on the big, sporty luxury it's good at and jettisons the short-wheelbase versions previously offered.
