2022 Lexus LS vs. Its Competition

2022 Lexus LS
Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

The LS competes best with the Genesis G90, a bargain-price luxury sedan that offers about 98 percent of the Lexus’ luxury quotient.

The LS has it beat when it comes to details and powertrain refinement, though, which explains its price tag.

The BMW 7-Series and Mercedes-Benz S-Class boast far more comprehensive lineups with price tags to match.

If the LS 500h piques your interest, a full electric car such as the Tesla Model S or the divine Lucid Air is worth a test drive.

Quick Specs
7.4
The 2022 Lexus LS presents an appealing blend of style, luxury, and above all attention to detail, even if rivals can be more fun to drive.
7.6
The 2022 BMW 7-Series brims with brash front-end style, but we like it better for its elegant interior and its vivacious V-8s.
7.2
The 2022 Mercedes-Benz S-Class remains the luxury benchmark, with the ride, comfort, power, and technology to prove it.
8.6
The 2022 Lucid Air is the debut car and flagship model from a new U.S. EV maker, and it could be the strongest rival to Tesla yet.
7.0
Practical and luxurious rarely mix, but the marriage works in the 2021 Genesis G90.
8.2
Growing old though it is, the Tesla Model S still looks and feels as fresh as when it first debuted eight years ago.
