2010 Lexus LS 460 Reviews
Lexus' flagship LS 460 full-size sedan is available in standard form and as a limousine-like long-wheelbase LS 460 L model that stretches nearly 203 inches from bumper to bumper — 5 inches more than the standard model. Both sizes are available with rear- or all-wheel drive. Competitors include the BMW 7 Series and Mercedes-Benz S-Class. An optional Advanced Parking Guidance System lets the car park itself and is the car's most intriguing feature.
A hybrid version of the LS 460 L sedan, dubbed LS 600h L, is covered separately in the Cars.com Research section.
New for 2010
Lexus adds active front headrests and Safety Connect, a new subscription telematics system, as standard. The available navigation system adds the new Lexus Enform concierge service. The LS also gets a round of styling tweaks and a new Sport Package for the rear-drive LS 460. The package includes lower front and rear spoilers, a firmer air suspension, a unique grille, sport front seats, Black/Saddle leather interior and paddle shifters. The exterior features of the Sport Package also are available as the Appearance Package.
Styling of the grille, front bumper, headlights and taillights has been revised for 2010. The side mirrors have integrated turn signals, and the standard 18-inch wheels are a new 10-spoke design.
In the long-wheelbase variant, Lexus aims to replicate the environment of a business jet with optional massaging, 45-degree-reclining rear seats that include an ottoman for leg support. Interior features for either LS model include:
