The result of a five-year creative journey, the fifth-generation Lexus flagship transforms the luxury saloon into a totally new art form. Our designers have always pushed boundaries, but this latest LS extends the frontiers of technology even further with Multi Stage Hybrid – a breakthrough technology that transforms the Lexus Self-Charging Hybrid powertrain performance. Re-imagined from the ground up, it offers superb handling agility and exhilarating performance, yet refuses to compromise on comfort and luxury.
The infotainment system has a more inviting graphic user interface and is controlled using the next generation of Lexus’ Remote Touch control system. The intuitive operation is designed to mirror the way a smartphone is used; it can also recognise “handwritten” commands – outline letters traced using a finger on the touchpad.
Hand-pleated door linings, Shimamoku wood patterns and decorative trim inspired by Edo Kiriko cut glass complement the ‘Takumi’-crafted leather seats in the LS' whisper-quiet cabin.
Longer and lower than the saloon it replaces, the all-new LS debuts a strikingly bold design with a coupe-like silhouette punctuated by the new Lexus design language. This premium rear-wheel drive platform, an extended version of the one used for the stunning new Lexus LC 500 coupe, will offer a more dynamic experience on the road while further elevating renowned Lexus comfort.
