The Lexus GS goes up against some of the best cars on the market, the mid-size luxury cars from Europe and the U.S., and acquits itself well.
BMW’s 5-Series is brand new; its turbo-6 is a much stronger engine than Lexus’ naturally aspirated V-6, and it’s turbo-4 is stronger than Lexus’ version.
The Mercedes-Benz E-class is also new, and it is the benchmark for interior elegance and luxury.
The E-Class also offers a vast array of models and body styles.
Audi’s A6 is aging, and we prefer its coupe-like A7 sibling.
Still, its supercharged V-6 is strong, it offers lots of cachet, and it has plenty of tech features.
The Cadillac CTS is a great entry from America.
We like the styling and the Caddy takes a backseat to no rival in terms of handling.
The Infiniti Q70 is is similar to the GS with its V-6 power and Japanese roots, but it has a coarse engine and Infiniti lacks the prestige of its rivals.
