The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
9.2
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. Don’t let the conservative wrapper fool you, the 2016 BMW 7-Series charges boldly into a new generation as a sporty big sedan, with new ride-and-handling tech, space-age construction, and a plug-in hybrid version.
