The base price of the LHS is $28,995. Options on our test car included the power moonroof and chrome wheels. Its sticker price was $30,580. The base price of the 300M is $28,895. Options included the smok s group (ashtray) and chrome wheels. Its sticker price was $29,515. Warranty
The standard warranty is for three years or 36,000 miles. Point: These cars convey similar concepts in a slightly different fashion. The LHS is smooth, quiet and elegant. The 300M is tighter, smaller and agile. The new engine is sweet, the interiors voluminous and styling is cutting-edge. Counterpoint: I would like to see the 300M's split-folding back seat and AutoStick transmission as option on the LHS as well.
