The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2018 Lexus LS 500 sedans don’t reach for the same performance limits as the LC coupes, but there’s ambition in every line. We’re not fans of mismatches, but the 2018 Lincoln Continental’s lithe road manners and retro theming pair awfully well.
