2014 Lexus LS 460 Features

Features

The Lexus LS provides effortlessly smooth performance and an excellent ownership experience–it's a flagship vehicle is the clearest sense of the term–but it also offers the latest technologies available in any car today. Even the base LS 460 comes equipped with some of the plushest standard features on the market today, and stepping into the F Sport, long-wheelbase or Hybrid models takes that list upward in the direction of legitimate opulence.

There are four trims available on the LS–LS 460, LS 460L, LS 460 F Sport, and LS 600h L–with all-wheel drive optional on most models. Power mirrors, locks, windows and seats are standard across the board, as are keyless entry and start, auto climate control, leather and sunroof. You also get Bluetooth and USB connectivity, an AM/FM/CD/DVD player, satellite and HD radio, heated and ventilated front seats, navigation, and a 12.3-inch wide center-mounted display.

Snack trays? Widescreen DVD entertainment systems? If you're not placated by the Lexus LS, you just won't be pleased.
On all-wheel-drive models, Lexus adds a standard heated steering wheel and a heating system that warms the front passenger area more quickly; a windshield de-icer and headlight washers also are standard.

Also standard is Lexus' Remote Touch system, a new addition to the sedan. It uses a mouse-style controller to operate audio, climate, navigation, and phone functions, and to tie into Entune, which is also standard. Entune links smartphones to the LS' infotainment system, so that drivers can operate its functions, including a handful of apps, via Remote Touch. Those apps now include streaming audio from Pandora; Yelp!; Facebook; MovieTickets.com; OpenTable; even Bing for local searches.

On the options list are features like power rear seats with climate control; an ottoman for rear seats that includes massaging functions for the seats, a control panel for the seats and entertainment system, a retractable table, and a refrigerated cooler box; a rear-seat entertainment system with a Blu-Ray DVD player, an SD card slot, and a nine-inch LCD screen; and a 19-speaker Mark Levinson sound system with 450 watts of power and an 8GB hard drive for music storage. An Executive Class seating package on long-wheelbase cars turns the five-seat LS into a truly regal four-seater.
