2015 Lexus GS vs. Its Competition

2015 Lexus GS 350
Bengt Halvorson Bengt Halvorson Senior Editor

BMW's turbo sixes are swell, and the M5 is dazzling with its rev-matching manual.

The Audi A6 is fine, though we prefer its sleeker hatchback A7 cousin; the front- or all-wheel-drive sedan can be had with a supercharged V-6 and tech wizardry like Google Earth mapping and S-line sport trim.

The Cadillac CTS gets the nod for standout American styling and a lineup that includes sedan, coupe, and wagon, plus the power-crazy V-Series; the new sedan improves rear-seat room and interior quality.

Finally, the Infiniti Q70 may be the GS' most direct challenger: you'll find great handling, a charming fluid style and rippling V-6 power, but some coarse drivetrain noises.

And then there's the badge and the brand: What does Infiniti mean today?.

The 2015 Audi A6 may look a little sedate, but it's a brilliant performer–thanks to its diesel-driven TDI, the supercharged A6, or turbocharged S6 versions.
