The LS is a flagship in every sense of the word, at least in its Lexus interpretation. It's an excellent ownership experience, and effortlessly smooth performance--but it's also a tour de force of the latest technology in cars.
With all the lavish options, you might want to sit in the backseat while someone else does the driving. Every LS includes the expected power features; a sunroof; satellite radio; and USB and iPod connectivity, as well as Bluetooth with audio streaming. The long-wheelbase LS 460 L adds on climate-controlled front seats; heated rear seats; park assist, which helps steer the car into parallel spots; power door and trunk closers; and xenon headlamps.
Options include a navigation system with real-time traffic and dynamic rerouting; heated and cooled rear seats; a backup camera; ventilated seats; a DVD entertainment system; and the hybrid-only ottoman-style backseat, fold-down wooden trays, and rear cooler box. If you're more often chauffeured, add the Executive Class Seating Package, and you'll practically have a Rolls-Royce-caliber space back there.
The standout entertainment feature available on the LS 460 and standard on the LS 600h L is a Mark Levinson audio system with 19 speakers, 19 audio channels, 450 watts of power, and 8GB of hard-drive space for music.
