The 2018 Lexus GS is a worthy rival to its German foes in terms of luxury and handling, but its engine lineup is falling behind the competition.

Pros
Handling and poise
Voluptuous sheet metal
Comfortable, supportive front seats
Crisp F Sport steering
Connectivity complete with Enform

Cons
F Sport's stiffer ride
Responsiveness in GS 300
Mediocre mileage for GS 350
Tight back-seat knee room
Cabin's plastic trim

The 2018 GS 300 is a new name for last year's GS 200t. Otherwise, the car is unchanged.

PROS
Comfortable and spacious interior is generously appointed
Turbocharged four-cylinder engine delivers high fuel economy

CONS
Acceleration is nothing special
Trunk not expandable because rear seatbacks do not fold down
Entertainment and navigation system controller is hard to use

The 2019 Buick Enclave carries over from the redesigned 2018 model with only minor trim and options updates, and that's a good thing. We like the Enclave's long list of standard features and its high level of in-car technology.

Pros
Generous room for passengers in all three rows
Quiet and smooth ride quality
Plenty of standard features

Cons
Some advanced safety features only available on the top trim level

Abhor the idea of a minivan? The 2019 Buick Enclave is a generously sized family crossover with a quiet interior and luxury appointments—and no sliding doors.

Pros
Balanced and well-defined silhouette
Generous third-row space
Minimalist cockpit
Confident ride and handling
Decent performance, but…

Cons
...fuel economy lags
Trims and options get pricey fast
Base model lacks most advanced safety tech
All-wheel drive is part-time only
