The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.8
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2011 Lincoln MKS won’t win over the Town Car or the M5 crowd, but it’s blessed with smart performance, subdued good looks, and a roomy interior. Respectable performance and top technology make the 2010 Lexus GS 350 and GS 460 worthwhile sport sedans, but low points include a cramped backseat and a GS 450h hybrid model that fails to wow for fuel economy.
