The result of a five-year creative journey, the all-new, fifth-generation Lexus flagship transforms the luxury saloon into a totally new art form. Lexus designers have always pushed boundaries, but this latest LS extends the frontiers of technology even further. Re-imagined from the ground up, It offers superb handling agility and exhilarating performance, yet refuses to compromise on comfort and luxury. It is set to rival the likes of the Audi A8, BMW 7 Series and Mercedes S-Class.
The dynamic appearance of the LS is matched by its superb performance.
The low driving position and driver-focused cockpit have been conceived
with the aim of making driving a truly rewarding experience. Thanks to a
new platform shared with the LC luxury coupé, this flagship saloon offers
outstanding handling agility, combined with supreme comfort and refinement.
The LS 500h Multi Stage Hybrid – a breakthrough technology that transforms
the Lexus Self-Charging Hybrid powertrain performance. As a Lexus owner
you’ll also enjoy our unique Japanese ‘Omotenashi’ hospitality.
‘Omotenashi’ is a time-honoured Japanese concept that’s all about anticipating
the needs of people, even before they arise. It raises hospitality to an art form,
as in the famous tea ceremony, where every guest is treated with warmth,
understanding and respect. In the new LS, the principles of ‘Omotenashi’
have inspired us to create the ultimate luxury car experience
. Even before you get behind the wheel, the LS is preparing its welcome. As
you approach, the door handles light up to greet you and the ground beneath
the doors is illuminated to help you avoid stepping into puddles. To make it
easy for you to enter, the car gently raises itself three centimetres on its air
suspension,* the height of the driver’s seat is automatically lowered and the
bolsters on the seat cushions glide aside, returning into position once you
are seated to keep you snugly in place. And to help you fasten the seatbelt,
the buckle automatically lifts up to meet your fingertips.
* Available on selected grades
The LS is equipped with the most advanced safety innovation and intelligent driving support systems we’ve ever produced.
The new Pre Collision System includes our world-first Pedestrian Alert and Active Steering Assist to provide intelligent safety support while you drive. Pedestrian Alert constantly scans the road ahead for pedestrians. If a person is detected, the system will notify you of their direction via an animation on the LS’s large colour Head-up Display (HUD), keeping you constantly and intuitively informed while you drive. Active Steering Assist adds a new layer of safety in the case of a possible collision. If a collision is imminent, the upgraded system will alert you to the hazard and swiftly determine the appropriate response, from automatically applying brakes to steering you out of harm’s way.
Our world-class engineers have updated Lexus CoDrive by adding the new Lane Tracing Assist (LTA) to the existing Dynamic Radar Cruise Control. LTA traces the path of the vehicle ahead, keeping you in lane even when there are no road lines or our lane line detection can’t recognize them, e.g. on country roads or in stop-start city traffic, providing seamless assistance no matter where you drive. By intelligently and seamlessly reacting to your driving style and intentions, the upgraded Lexus CoDrive not only improves safety but also gives you a smoother, more confident driving experience on the road.
Time doesn’t stand still, and neither do we. We’re constantly anticipating changes to the driving landscape and upgrading and innovating the future of safety. The Lexus LS’s Automatic High Beams have been upgraded with the new Two-stage Adaptive High-beam System giving you finer control when you drive at night. Plus, the improved Lane Departure Alert is now capable of detecting the boundaries between asphalt and other surfaces such as grass, dirt and curb stone. Our world-class engineers have also included brand new innovations, including the Front Cross Traffic Alert to prevent collisions at intersections, and our Road Sign Assist that inputs road sign information into your HUD, keeping you intuitively updated while you drive.
