The Car Connection's Take

TCC Rating

7.0
8.2

TCC’s Bottom Line

The 2020 Lexus LS is a throwback cruiser with edgy, space-age looks, though the hybrid version is unbeatable as a road-tripper. Growing old though it is, the Tesla Model S still looks and feels as fresh as when it first debuted eight years ago.
