Review: 2011 Lexus GS 460

Like that pesky honor student who always sat in the front row, was first to raise his or her hand to answer a question and never seemed to score below an A on an exam, Lexus has managed to become teachers pet in nearly every segment in which it competes. Its luxury cars have been a hit with consumers for more than 20 years, but theres one crucial segment where Lexus hasnt made much of a dent: Midsize luxury cars.

Its a tough class that spans the globe from Detroit to Sweden to England to Japan and, of course, to Germany.
