The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.6
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. Coupe, Cabriolet, and Maybach versions—and even a Plug-In Hybrid—make the 2016 Mercedes-Benz S-Class far more diverse and adventurous than it used to be; it's now not just a flagship sedan, but a family of flagships.
