What Is the 2019 Lexus LS?
The five-seat LS 500 is Lexus’ flagship full-size luxury sedan. It’s powered by a 416-horsepower, twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V-6 that drives a 10-speed automatic transmission. Rear- and all-wheel-drive versions are offered, along with a gas/electric hybrid drivetrain in the LS 500h. The LS competes with the Audi A8, BMW 7 Series and Mercedes-Benz S-Class.
What’s New on the 2019 Lexus LS?
Apple CarPlay and Amazon Alexa integration, as well as remote functions accessible from a smart watch or Alexa device, are now standard. Lexus Safety System Plus 2.0 is also standard, while Lane Change Assist is now part of the optional Lexus Safety System Plus A. A new white interior is available on the Luxury model with Mark Levinson audio and 20-inch vapor-chrome wheels are available on the Executive model.
What Features in the 2019 Lexus LS Are Most Important?
Standard luxury features include a heated steering wheel, heated and ventilated front seats, a power rear sunshade, navigation with a 12.3-inch screen and a hands-free power trunk lid. Options include special wood trim, a panoramic glass roof, an air suspension, a head-up display and power-adjustable rear seats with a massage feature.
Should I Buy the 2019 Lexus LS?
Redesigned last year, the LS comes in at a lower price point than its German luxury competitors. Ride quality and steering performance are highlights, and the LS 500h’s gas mileage is significantly better than its hybrid predecessor’s. The Remote Touch multimedia controller continues to rate poorly, so spend some time with it before you buy.
