The Lexus LC 500 arrives to a finicky portion of the market—one that wants the bragging rights, and some measure of driving satisfaction—yet long-distance luxury-car comfort.
The Jaguar XF also offers a rorty V-8 engine and well-tuned driving experience, although the LC looks more spacious inside.
The BMW 6-Series is offered in high-performance M6 form; as such, it’s not as rewarding to drive as it should be, but the spacious interior is great for all-day drives.
The S-Class Coupe is very spacious, and more comfort-focused than others in this group.
Meanwhile the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class is a family of roadsters with top-down enjoyment yet enough touring refinement where you wouldn’t know the difference with the top up.
The Cadillac ATS-V is a smaller, high-performance model, but its strong V-8 performance and unique coupe body style make it one to weigh against the LC.
