My sister-in-law left her July 2020 CU magazine here and there is a comparo in the back of the magazine called Luxury On A Budget. They clearly picked the 300 AWD Limited by a score of 78 for the 300 and 52 for the Lexus. Price 300 = 45,835 Lexus LS = 103,899 The roomy 300 has remained basically the same for the past 15 years, which is really the point. This comfortable, reliable cruiser boasts a plush, quiet ride; a well-tailored interior; and dignified exterior styling. It rivals more-expensive European sedans. You can load up a 300 with ADAS features and luxury options for a truly high-end driving experience, and it's still less than half the price of the Lexus LS. The Lexus they called the Luxury Letdown. Poor rear seat comfort and cargo space, with controls that are confusing and distracting to use. And it once vaunted ride comfort no longer stands out. The new turbo 6 has a notable delay off the line and overall, it's just not as smooth as the previous V8.
