Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

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)

The 2018 Genesis G90 delivers a spacious and luxurious interior that's backed up by a blissfully hushed and smooth ride. Add a giant list of standard features that will satisfy all but the most tech-obsessed buyer and the option of a robust V8 engine, and you have all the building blocks of a traditional luxury sedan.

PROS
Refined suspension smooths out the roughest roads
All versions come fully loaded
Delivers exceptional level of luxury for far less than competitors
Lavish rear-seat accommodations on V8 models

CONS
Less refined semiautonomous systems than the competition
Limited dealer network and support
Interior materials aren't as special as those of rivals

The 2018 Genesis G90 is the modern interpretation of a luxo-barge—and it’s a great value, all things considered.

Pros
Among the best-riding cars ever
Hushed, silent operation
Strong engine choices
Roomy, luxurious interior
Impressive safety scores

Cons
Limited brand cachet
Fun to drive? Nope
Design isn’t terribly distinctive

By: 
thecarconnection.com

With elegant styling and a first-class cabin, the G90 is the Genesis brand’s first attempt at a luxury sedan. Few options are offered; instead, nearly every conceivable feature is standard. Highlights include a 12.3-inch touchscreen for infotainment, adaptive dampers, a head-up display, automated emergency braking, and adaptive cruise control.

Pros
Smooth powertrain,
posh and quiet interior,
compelling value.

Cons
Low prestige score,
what’s-your-hurry handling.
