The LS has unrivalled levels of comfort and equipment to make it an excellent choice in the market sector and there’s an impressive hybrid for those who are more environmentally aware. The car does so many great things, it's great to drive around town and is also one of the best made and most reliable cars available today. This is the flagship model of the Lexus range so there's a lot of quality equipment and great ideas on board to help set this apart from its rivals.
The car is large which means that it is not going to be a frugal motor and even the hybrid version will return around 33 mpg. There are just two engines to choose from: a 5.0 litres LS 600h which is very fast and has a petrol-electric hybrid to power it to good performance and the electric only performance is quite impressive around town. However, there's also a 4.6 litre petrol engine available which is also very fast and offers similar economy figures. The automatic gearbox is also quite impressive though more suited for motorway driving and there's plenty of grip to help the car power along winding country roads quite easily. Even the hybrid LS 600h is a nippy handler and will reach 0 to 62 mph in 6.1 seconds. Indeed, the LS is a safe car to drive which has an impressive 10 airbags fitted to the interior and Lexus also added type pressure monitoring and stability control to its safety features.
There's also adaptive cruise control which ensures that the vehicle doesn't get too close to the car in front and a pre-crash sensor system which will help brake and prepare the car for an imminent crash. To underline safety performance on motorways, the LS is also fitted with lane departure warning to alert the driver that they are moving out of their lane. Leaving aside the fact that Lexus make some of the most reliable car has available today, the handling for the LS is quite impressive considering its size and weight.
It's also a practical car and has a boot size of 560 litres (though it's smaller in the hybrid version to accommodate the batteries) and there's lots of space in the cabin which is extremely well built and well-designed. However, the LS is not only one of the best handling cars in its class, it's also one of the best equipped with standard kit including electric rear blinds and a voice operated satnav system. Literally nothing has been missed off the list which means the options are limited. Essentially, the LS is very good at what it does with an army of fans impressed with the levels of reliability and safety as well as an excellent equipment list which helps to make this a very good choice in the sector.
