Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2018 BMW 5 Series lives up to the expectations set by its forebears. There's an engine for nearly every taste, and the car's handling capabilities are fundamentally sound. Factor in the 5 Series' latest tech and safety features, and you've got a prime pick for a midsize luxury sedan.

PROS
Wide range of powerful and relatively efficient engines
A host of innovative features and leading-edge technology
Interior quarters are quiet and comfortable
Generous trunk capacity

CONS
Some interior materials are a bit below segment standards
Evolutionary styling doesn't stand out in a crowded class

The 2018 BMW 5-Series expands the sedan's already-excellent lineup to include an efficient plug-in hybrid and an uber-quick V-8.

Pros
Useful plug-in hybrid
State-of-the-art tech
Great powertrains
Agile and responsive
Very comfortable

Cons
Shockingly expensive now
Interior color combos can be busy
Pricey advanced features
It’s not the 5-Series you remember

It's easy to think the 2019 Lexus GS F is the same thing as Lexus' RC F but with four doors instead of two. After all, they both share the same non-turbocharged V8, eight-speed automatic transmission and essentially the entire front end. But the GS F manages to be a far more compelling execution.

Pros
Uncommonly rewarding to drive, with outstanding steering
Upscale cabin design
Great sounds from the non-turbocharged V8

Cons
Remote Touch tech interface is difficult and distracting to use
Turbocharged competitors ultimately offer more thrust
Back seat doesn't fold down

Upscale, roomy, quiet interior
Impressive list of standard tech and safety features
Massive trunk in GS 300 and GS 350 models

Cons
Infotainment system is frustrating and distracting

By:

The 2019 Lexus GS is a handsome mid-size luxury sedan with value on its side.

Pros
Good value among competitors
Fun, fire-breathing V-8 option
Competitive fuel economy
Handsome looks

Cons
Limited tech
Poorly functioning infotainment system
Base engine is breathless
Smaller ES may be a better comfort fit
