Lexus has become one of the go-to choices for those seeking the ultimate in comfort and build quality, and the 2008 LS 460 is certainly no exception.
Inside, the 2008 Lexus LS 460 features several seating configurations. For 2008, Lexus's Standard version of the LS 460 holds five, and Cars.com describes the seating as "heated, leather front seats" and "spacious accommodations" for those in the back. Optional on Lexus's 2008 LS 460 L is the Executive Class Seating Package, which Edmunds says "drops rear seating capacity to two," but in return includes "reclining power seats with heating, cooling and massage." Overall, reviews read by TheCarConnection.com were satisfied with the rear legroom on the base models and more than impressed with the additional space offered in the 2008 Lexus LS 460 L; ConsumerGuide even notes that the L "adds its length in rear legroom." Whether it comes with four seats or five, Car and Driver feels that the seats on the Lexus 2008 LS 460 are "all-day-comfortable" and help make this 2008 Lexus a "comfortable long-haul cruiser," according to Cars.com.
The 2008 Lexus LS 460 was designed more for supreme luxury than for efficiently utilizing cargo space, but ConsumerGuide finds that "the trunk is sufficient for most travel needs" and "in-cabin small-item storage is good."
Much more noteworthy than cargo room is the build quality on the LS 460, which Cars.com claims is "near the top of the luxury sedan pack in terms of material quality." Edmunds agrees, noting that "the fit and finish is without peer" on the Lexus 2008 LS 460. Little touches abound on the LS 460; for example, Motor Trend notes, "the steering wheel is buffed for three hours and sewn with ultrasoft stitching."
The ride is also stunningly quiet, in typical Lexus fashion, and Edmunds finds that driving the LS 460 is like being "ensconced in a bubble of serenity."
The 2008 Lexus LS 460 features top-of-the-line build quality and luxury materials.
