    I love the Deville but it's WAY out of it's league when compared to the LS430.

    Depends on which Deville. If it is a plain, rental-fleet Deville I agree.


    But if it was a fully optioned-out DTS, then thumbs up to the Caddy.

    Comparing ANY Deville to a LS430 is ludicrous at best. You might "like" the DTS better but it's CERTAINLY NOT in the same league, sorry.

    It's a shame, but.. I think the Town Car is closer in comparison than the DeVille.. Cadillac is kinda lagging behind on some key issues.. The Lexus LS430 (yes, "just" a Toyota), is stealing customers away from the Mercedes S-Class.. It's a more complete automobile than the DeVille...

    The LS 430 is really just a better car than the DeVille. That's just straight talk... and I own a DHS. Maybee at the end of the decade we can revisit this with the all-new DTS but for now it's a done deal. The DeVille does have a bit more character though...

    Re: Deville or Lexus LS430

    As much as I love Cadillac, the 430 wins this one hands down. Sorry guys, but a 430 is about as sweet as it gets, and a DeVille.....well, not quite. Maybe a Fleetwood Brougham d'Elegance.....pillowtop leather.....rims.....350.....maybe then.....lol

    Seems to be the popular opinion in this thread so far.

    The 430. Maybe different in a few years.

    Style?
    The Deville. Its subjective, but the redesigned Lexus LS bores me to death. The Deville might not be exciting, but it is appropriately expressive.

    Overall?
    The Lexus. The drive wheels are in the correct place, quality is proven, and the resale value makes it a good buy. Performance is nothing to sneeze at either.

    Neither of these two vehicles are favorites of mine.

    I have had 2 DeVilles and my Cousin has a 04 LS 430.. I would take the LS 430 anyday over the deville but i would gladly take my 2005 STS over the LS 430

    In typical Japanese fashion, the Lexus looks like a generic Mercedes, good but boring.

    Re: Deville or Lexus LS430

    LS430 would appear to win this debaucle no contest...

    However lest we forget the DTS freshening added almost all of the key components that it had been sorely lacking for so long.

    *Heated Windshield Wipers
    *Heated and Cooled Seats
    *Xenon Lights
    *Adaptive Cruise Control
    *Advanced Navigation system with Voice Commands etc etc...

    So with all that, the Deville would seem to be much closer. ALTHOUGH, when it comes to the styling factor...

    I think this is one of the FEW cases where the Lexus product actually has SOME character, and certainly no less character than the new DTS. I dont think either one really screams style.

    So its almost a dead-heat, but wont be for long because the new LS is coming soon.
