2019 Lexus LS vs. Its Competition

2019 Lexus LS image
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

Big luxury sedans have started to develop their own independent personalities.

By most accounts, the 2019 Mercedes-Benz S-Class is the standard-bearer, and its price reflects that.

The BMW 7-Series carves a sporty niche and mostly succeeds.

Audi’s A8 is staggeringly complicated, but highly advanced.

The Jaguar XJ is a throwback to simpler times, but it delights on a curvy road.

Don’t discount the subtle, gentle Lincoln Continental—but dealers are bound to.
