Our Take

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

What Is the 2014 Lexus LS 460?

The 2014 Lexus LS 460 is the brand's flagship full-size sedan, offering seating for four to five people. It's offered in two trim levels: Base and L. Both trims come standard with rear-wheel drive but can be had with all-wheel drive. There's also a hybrid Lexus LS 600h, which is covered separately on Cars.com. Additionally, an F Sport model was added to the LS line the previous model year. The BMW 7 Series and Mercedes-Benz S-Class are primary LS competitors.

What's New on the 2014 Lexus LS 460?

The 2014 LS 460 offers Siri Eyes Free Mode for iPhone 4S and 5, allowing drivers to use voice commands to make a call, play music via iTunes, listen to and write texts and emails, receive directions, search, and listen to and add calendar info, reminders and appointments.

How Does the 2014 Lexus LS 460 Compare to Other Luxury Sedans?

Unlike earlier generations, the 2014 LS 460 is priced similarly to models like the BMW 7 Series, Jaguar XJ and Audi A8. Even so, those models offer more impressive handling and a wider range of powertrain and design options. Additionally, in its quest to make the LS F Sport a  sporty limousine, Lexus sacrificed the interior opulence drivers would expect from an LS, leaving the cabin feeling functional and little else.

What Features in the 2014 Lexus LS 460 Are Most Important?

The 2014 LS 460 is powered by a 386-horsepower, 4.6-liter V-8 engine and an eight-speed automatic transmission. All-wheel drive, an option, cuts horsepower down to 360. An air suspension with selectable modes is available as an option. The LS F Sport gets a lowered air suspension, Brembo-brand brakes and a limited-slip differential for rear-wheel-drive versions.

Significant standard features include Lexus' signature spindle grille, 18-inch alloy wheels, xenon high-intensity-discharge headlights, side mirrors with integrated turn signals, a power moonroof, a navigation system with a 12.3-inch screen, a Remote Touch console controller and Bluetooth phone connectivity and streaming audio. Notable available features include 19-inch wheels, LED headlights, a power rear sunshade, a Mark Levinson premium stereo and a Blu-ray backseat entertainment system with a 9-inch screen. Long-wheelbase LS models can be had with an Executive Class Seating Package featuring a reclining right-side rear seat, a rear center console with a tray table, ventilation controls and a drink cooler.

The Lexus LS F Sport is unique from other LS models both inside and out. Exterior features include a mesh grille with a black surround, larger cooling openings, round foglights and special badging. Interior features include sport seats, aluminum pedals, steering-wheel-mounted shift paddles and a black Alcantara headliner.

The 2014 LS 460 also comes standard with electronically controlled antilock brakes, an electronic stability system, side-impact and knee airbags for the front seats, side curtain airbags and a backup camera. Available safety features include rear-seat side-impact airbags, a blind spot warning system with cross-traffic alert, automatic high-beam headlights and an advanced precollision system.

Should I Buy the 2014 Lexus LS 460?

The 2014 Lexus LS 460's V-8 engine is powerful yet frugal, and its spacious and stylish interior is comfortable on long drives. Using the console controller can be frustrating, though, and the Mark Levinson premium stereo isn't as high quality as you'd likely expect. If you opt for the LS 460 F Sport, you won't get the interior luxury of the regular model, but rather a colder, less appealing cabin.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
