The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.4
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
Drivers may not find much to lust after in the 2019 Lexus LS, but it pampers like few other luxury sedans. The 2019 Mercedes-Benz S-Class delivers effortless power, sublime handling, scads of safety features, and the incontrovertible impression of wealth, tastefully applied.
