2020 Lexus LC vs. Its Competition

Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

The Lexus LC leans toward luxury more than it does performance, which makes it stand out against most of its direct rivals.

The Mercedes-Benz SL is plush most of the time and sporty in certain configurations, yet its convertible shape may not appeal to all shoppers.

The BMW 8-Series strikes a good balance, though its price tag climbs rapidly.

By contrast, the Jaguar F-Type feels like something of a bargain even with a lineup pared down for 2020.

The Porsche 911 does nearly all things well and shouldn’t be missed.

It’s not likely many shoppers will also consider the Nissan GT-R, but those who do will find ferocious performance and a sprinkling of luxury.
