Expert Quotes:

This is the first Lexus on the market where the wood (in this case dark brown ash burl wood) has a matte finish, a look that we'd like to see in more of the company's vehicles.

unremarkable cabin design

definitely looks the part of a flagship vehicle, with clean, sleek lines

Redesigned last year, the 2014 Lexus LS showcases the brand's unquestionable progress in the realm of uber-luxury sedans. In this case, you can see all of that progress up front, and inside.

Lexus's signature 'spindle' grille has found its way to each Lexus model that has been redesigned in the past few years. It's a piece of a design language that works well on all shapes and sizes, ranging from the RX crossover to the ultra-luxe LS sedan. Thanks to its hourglass grille, the LS looks significantly less anonymous than past models, though the brand's old 'L-finesse' design language is still present through the sedan's profile and rear. The old and new designs work well together, but we're still looking forward to seeing how the new theme will look as it creeps across the rest of the sedan's sheetmetal over the next few years.

Dramatic is a good word for the reinvented cockpit. It's another iteration of the horizontally themed cabin that works so well in the GS, retrimmed in a higher grade of wood and metallic finishes and surrounded by leather. A larger, 12.3-inch-wide LCD screen dominates the center of the dash, and Lexus' vividly bright gauges get their own information display, an almost six-inch screen implanted in their midst. Aluminum is used for some of the controls, and on the F Sport, it makes up the pedals and other interior trim. Standard versions wear walnut, maple, or a "shimamoku" processed wood stained a very dark grey; Hybrids have attractive bamboo trim we wish could be ordered elsewhere. All versions offer a choice of handsome leather trim, with a new saddle color; F Sports have their own leather selection and a black Alcantara headliner.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
