Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2018 Lexus GS 450h carries over unchanged from 2017.With just one trim level, the GS 450h is very easy to buy. There are stand-alone options such as a Mark Levinson surround-sound audio system, a power trunklid and parking sensors, and they're all relatively affordable.

PROS
Excellent fuel economy for a midsize luxury sedan
Comfortable and spacious interior is richly appointed
Still reasonably quick and sporty

CONS
Substantial cost premium over GS 350
Infotainment interface can frustrate

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

Pros
Powerful V8 engines
Handles well

User-friendly infotainment system

Cons

Driver visibility is limited
Low predicted reliability rating

By:

The 2018 Dodge Charger has aged remarkably well–and if it’s four-door muscle you need, few sedans deliver its performance thrill.

Pros
Terrific V-8/rear-drive fun
V-6 is reasonably powerful and efficient
Ride and handling still impress
Still, an appealing look
Still has better infotainment than any Lexus

Cons
V-8s are heavy and thirsty
Low-buck base interior trim
No V-8/AWD pairing
In the running with the Nissan Frontier as the oldest vehicle on the market
