2016 Lexus LS @ Ken Shaw Lexus in Toronto

From the sophisticated dynamism of the Spindle Grille, set low and wide in its chrome-plated frame, through the elegant yet boldly assertive body lines, Lexus LS projects a sense of self-assured power — and a promise of powerfully affecting driving pleasure.

As you enter LS, the Driver's Seat automatically slides back and the Steering Wheel retracts, ushering you into a realm of unmatched refinement and exclusivity. Premium materials, impeccable finishes, advanced features, and meticulous attention to detail, create an unrivaled experience for the driver and passengers alike.

LS's artfully crafted interior is complemented by the Advanced Illumination System (AIS). The system automatically lights up the LS exterior and interior in expressive stages — first to welcome you, then to gently guide your exit at the end of the journey.

Available with certain interior/exterior colour combinations, the Shimamoku Steering Wheel and Wood Trim stand as yet another Lexus LS original. Crafted over the course of 38 days, the artistic, layered pattern of thinly shaved wood is velvet to the touch, and evokes the deep flavour of the natural wood fibres.

The LS's 360-horsepower, 32-valve V8 engine and 8-speed automatic transmission deliver an invigorating combination of acceleration and seamless shifting. A technological masterpiece, the engine features combined Port and Direct Injection, Electronic Throttle Control with intelligence (ETCS-i), and Variable Valve Timing with intelligence Electronically Driven (VVT-iE) on the Intake Cam, all of which contribute to LS's commanding output and undeniable efficiency.

Surprising power and efficiency are at your command. Lexus LS 600h L Lexus Hybrid Drive system combines a potent 5.0-litre 32-valve V8 VVT-iE Engine with two High-Torque Electric Drive Motors and a Powerful Hybrid Battery to produce 439 Net Horsepower.

The Enhanced Drive Mode Select system incorporates five drive modes — Normal, Eco, Sport, Sport+, and new Comfort mode. A simple turn of the dial delivers a unique combination of performance, efficiency, handling and ride comfort so that you can tailor the experience to your mood or driving conditions — from emotionally engaging, to maximum efficiency, to smooth and easy.

Exceptionally quiet, Lexus LS is constructed with laser-welding techniques that increase body rigidity, the strategic placement of insulating materials to eliminate most every source of engine, wind and road noise, and body panels honed to aerodynamic perfection. The result is incredible quietness and ride comfort inside of your Lexus sedan, along with extraordinary high-speed stability.

With an improved high-rigidity body, 2016 Lexus LS offers a newly enhanced driving experience. Rigidity has been increased with laser screw welding, and structural adhesive has been added to door openings and wheel housing for improved ride comfort. Plus, Electric Power Steering and both Air and Coil Spring Multilink Suspensions provide a more engaging road feel and immediate steering response.
The state-of-the-art Vehicle Dynamics Integrated Management (VDIM) system yields heightened control for confident handling inside of this Lexus sedan. Integrating all of the elements related to vehicle movement, VDIM first anticipates potential instability — such as a skid, slide, and over- or under-steer — then automatically takes corrective action through a combination of steering, braking and throttle control.

Lexus LS 460 AWD and 460 L AWD are fitted with Coil Spring Suspension. Optional Packages add front and rear Adaptive Variable Suspension with Front and Rear Air Suspension (standard on LS 460 L AWD and LS 600h L) that enables you to select a suspension setting that continuously adjusts to road surfaces and driving conditions for optimum handling and ride quality.

Lexus LS 460 AWD and 460 L AWD offer you the stability afforded by an advanced All Wheel Drive System that integrates Traction Control (TRAC) with Front, Centre and Rear Differentials. Under normal conditions, 70% of power is channeled to the rear wheels and 30% to the front. Should slippage occur, the system quickly and seamlessly adjusts the distribution ratio to achieve the best traction.

The first of its kind, the available Climate Concierge offers the ultimate in on-board thermal comfort inside of your Lexus sedan. A network of Sensors continuously monitors the temperature of four separate climate zones, adjusting temperatures of the Cabin, Climate Controlled Seats, and the Heated Steering Wheel to maintain each occupant’s comfort.

LS's cockpit offers exceptional driver control and convenience, including a 12.3-inch color LCD Display. The ultra-wide screen enables easy viewing with minimal eye movement while serving as the display for multimedia, the HDD Navigation system and the Rear Backup Camera. Functionality is controlled by voice, or the award-winning Remote Touch Interface (RTI).

Lexus engineers and Mark Levinson audio technicians spent over 2,000 hours tuning the 19-speaker, 450-watt Mark Levinson® 20 Premium Surround Sound Audio System, featuring a 12.3-inch LCD Display, to the specific acoustics of the new LS interior. Designed to rival the finest concert halls, the 7.1 Channel Surround Speaker Architecture offers an unmatched in-car audio experience.

Lexus LS adds to its legacy of providing the most sophisticated safety technology with the Advanced Pre-Collision System (PCS)10 on Lexus LS 600h L (also available with LS 460 AWD Technology Package and LS 460 AWD L Executive Package). Capable of sensing an unavoidable collision, the system swiftly initiates a series of steps to reduce the potential for injury, including the ability to automatically bring LS to a complete halt from speeds up to 40 km/hour.
