2020 Lexus GS vs. Its Competition

2019 Lexus GS
Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

European automakers benefit from a relatively healthy luxury sedan market at home, something that helps them justify continued investment in their four-doors.

That’s why the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, for instance, boasts a broad lineup with several engine and body style choices.

The Benz is pricey, but worth it in most ways.

So too is the classy BMW 5-Series, which may not be as magical as Bimmers past but still thrills when called upon.

The sleek, refined Audi A6 offers a strong value and most versions come with all-wheel drive.

We’re still smitten with the comfortable, refined Volvo S90, and its price tag makes it a relative bargain.

The Jaguar XF lineup shrinks a bit this year, but the big four-door is still worth a look for its personality.
