The Lexus LS-Series brings really a lot to the table. Examples include lots of standard and available tech features, great construction and style, solid handling and powerful engine. Keep reading for more.
Recently fully redesigned, the Lexus LS-Series is a super luxury car definitely worthy of your attention. Why? Well – it’s a super luxury car for starters. Jokes aside, just some of the reasons why the LS-Series might just be the car for you include great handling, a powerful engine, superb interior styling and build quality, very long lists of both standard and available features, as well as heavenly seating. These are but a few of the things that have caught our eye, so keep reading to see what the LS is like in more detail.
One of Each
A total of two powertrains adorn the LS-Series as of recently: one is a hybrid and the other standard gasoline. A twin-turbo V6 engine that puts out 416 horsepower can be seen powering the gasoline LS500 and LS500 F Sport versions of the series, while a V6 combined with two electric motors produces 354 horsepower to propel the LS500h hybrid. You’ll also see 10-speed automatic transmissions in both setups, but either powertrain will have more than plenty of oomph to move the big sedan without any trouble whatsoever. The hybrid setup definitely won’t hold you back in any situation, but the gasoline versions do boast slightly better acceleration.
Even though there is a really long list of available seating upgrades, the truth is that you’ll be plenty satisfied with the base version of the LS-Series accommodation, which seats 5. You’ll find no shortage of stretching space in either row of seats with ample room both up front and in the back. The interior is equally great with tons of premium materials throughout. The interior overall gives off a distinctive feel and Lexus has gone through the extra effort not to overlook even the smallest of details. As a result, the LS-Series truly has one of the most inviting, top-quality and cozy cabins on the market.
Premium Quality as Standard
There’s no need to go on and on about what Lexus considers standard equipment. The LS-Series’ standard features include a moonroof, USB port, Bluetooth, HD radio, satellite radio, 10-speaker audio system, dual-zone climate control, push-button start, and infotainment system with 12.3-inch screen, navigation and Remote Touch Interface responding to smartphone-style inputs and even including handwriting recognition. Available features, on the other hand, are just as plentiful. Among notable examples are a 7-inch touch screen in the rear seat, Wi-Fi hotspot, a 23-speaker Mark Levinson audio system, quad-zone automatic climate control, and the Lexus Enform Remote – a clever system that allows you to control climate settings, lock and unlock the doors and start the car from your phone.
Beautiful and Feature-Laden
There’s no shortage of eye-candy anywhere your gaze falls on the Lexus LS-Series. It is staggeringly good-looking, offers a more than solid performance and comes with more features than you can count or would want to. While critics will undoubtedly say that there are better choices among super luxury cars, the truth is that you don’t buy a Lexus because it’s the smart option; you buy it because it’s a Lexus. It represents bulletproof reliability, mind-blowing luxury and a feeling that you’re on top of the world. Such is the character of the company and also of the LS-Series. And quite deservedly so.
