2016 Lexus LS 460

2016 Lexus LS 460

The Lexus LS family has one of the best reputations among luxury cars; it’s hard to name a single area in which these big, spacious sedans don’t delight those who want top-tier comfort and technology. And for that matter, they have a hard-earned reputation for stellar reliability and longevity, and are the fiscally smart picks over their often more rapidly depreciating German competitors.

2016 Lexus LS Interior Overview

Automotive journalists say the 2016 Lexus LS has a luxurious cabin with top-notch materials and exceptional build quality. The front seats are spacious and supportive, and the rear seats are even more roomy and comfortable. Lexus’ Remote Touch controller, which functions like a computer mouse, operates the infotainment system, but it is difficult and distracting to use. The LS offers more trunk space than many rivals.


Toyota launched the Lexus brand with the full-size LS, a rear-drive sedan aimed directly at the likes of the BMW 7 Series and Mercedes-Benz S-Class. The Lexus LS was also one of the first full-size luxury sedans to go head-on against rivals from Europe.

Lexus’ largest sedan is primed to make the jump from a stodgy luxo-barge to an athletic and aggressive sport sedan with the newly unveiled 2018 Lexus LS sedan. The automaker has tried before to invigorate the LS, but the previous F-Sport packages and models were largely sport appearance packages. The 2018 LS 500, however, puts its performance up front with a new 415 horsepower, twin-turbocharged V6 engine mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission. Peak torque is stated at 442 pound-feet, which helps the sedan launch to 60 mph in just 4.5 seconds.
