Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

It may be difficult to put a label on the 2018 BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe, but there's no question about the level of performance and luxury it brings to the table.The 640i is powered by a turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six (315 horsepower and 330 pound-feet of torque) matched to an eight-speed automatic transmission with steering wheel-mounted shift paddles.

PROS
Modern interior is trimmed with excellent materials
Distinctive styling for a sedan of this size
Smooth, effortless power from either engine
Lots of standard features

CONS
Backseat is more cramped than in similar coupe-styled sedans
Not as quick as some rivals, regardless of engine
More expensive than most competitors

One of the ultimate grand-tourers, the BMW 6-Series stands ready to eat up miles, buyers' budgets, and premium unleaded.

Pros
Stunning Gran Coupe
Luxo-barge-lite
Huge range of options
Fantastic powertrains
Even the 640i feels special...

Cons
... as it should for $80,000-plus
Not really a corner carver
Low roofline compromises head room
Watch the price skyrocket

The 2018 Lexus LS 500 is redesigned and all-new.Choosing an LS 500 is simple: There's one well-appointed trim level with a handful of options and option packages.

PROS
Library-quiet at all speeds on all roads
Ride quality remains soft, supple and impervious to bad asphalt
Interior features world-class build quality and artful materials

CONS
Touchpad-based infotainment is clever but distracting on the road
Accelerates quick for its size, but the pedal response feels slow, numb
General lack of sportiness cedes advantage to some German rivals

The 2018 Lexus LS 500 sedans don’t reach for the same performance limits as the LC coupes, but there’s ambition in every line.

Pros
Eye-grabbing interior
Interesting exterior
Lots of rear-seat space
Laden with luxury touches
Hybrid’s promised gains

Cons
The V-8’s gone
Lots of intentional drivetrain noise
Bounding air-sprung ride
Steering lacks precision

By: 
thecarconnection.com

Pros
Bold new cabin materials and textures
Well-behaved 10-speed automatic
Ride quality
Steering
24-inch-wide head-up display
Improved gas mileage
Front cross-traffic alert

Cons
Remote Touch touchpad controller
No Apple CarPlay or Android Auto
Operation of driver-aid tech is so-so
Could be stronger off the line (LS 500)
Hybrid braking feel (LS 500h)
EV button is pointless (LS 500h)
