The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2017 Lexus LS 460 is a comfortable cruiser with a reputation to match: owners have consistently rated it one of the most satisfying models to own. The Mercedes-Benz S-Class lineup is more diverse than it's ever been and is still the benchmark by which all full-size luxury cars should be measured.
