Design

Elevate Everything

LS’s sleek coupe-like exterior has been honed even further with a series of subtle yet striking changes, while the interior reaches new levels of refinement and reward. All enriched by a series of new colours worthy of a true flagship.

Exterior Enhancements

Graced with new headlights, new taillights, a refreshed front fascia, and new wheels, including standard 19” and available 20”, LS’ already stunning exterior takes another bold step forward.

Colour Highlights

Several new exterior colours make their debut, including Silver Illusion. Refined over years of development, its contrasting shades evoke the calming beauty of moonlight reflecting off the surface of the water.

Omotenashi Interior

Omotenashi – the art of Japanese hospitality – welcomes you at every turn. Unlock the door, and the power easy access system automatically positions the driver’s seat to ease your way in or out. The standard 28-way power driver seat includes heating, cooling and massage functionality. Dual zone automatic climate control. 24” head-up display, and new 12.3” touchscreen display put information at your command. Three available packages let you tailor your LS experience.

Luxury Package

Enrich comfort and convenience with the Luxury package, with features that include 28-way power adjustable front passenger seat, climate concierge that allows you to set 4 independent temperature zones, panoramic moonroof, and digital display rearview mirror. LS 500 only.

Executive Package

Available Trims

including Organic Artwood, Herringbone Artwood, Laser Special Wood, and Cut Glass, based on traditional Japanese Kiriko glass techniques.

Elevated Comfort

LS’s newly designed seats embrace you the moment you sit inside. New stitching, new materials, and new venting serve to support better as you sink deeper into the cushion, while maintaining a more comfortable temperature throughout the seasons.

Performance

The new Lexus Driving Signature makes itself felt the moment you press the accelerator. On LS 500, improved initial engine torque leads to greater acceleration response and improved shift-timing across a range of speeds. On LS 500h, thoughtful tuning, including increased battery assist delivers even smoother performance.

LS 500 AWD Twin Turbo

416 HP Twin Turbo Powertrain

LS 500 AWD puts 416 HP at your command, courtesy of a twin turbo V6 -- the first in the Lexus lineup -- mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission -- capable of carrying you from 0-100 KM in 4.6 seconds. Steering wheel mounted paddle shifters put the feeling of a manual transmission at your fingertips. Dual stainless-steel exhaust with integrated chrome tailpipe diffusers leave a lasting impression.

LS 500h AWD

Multi-Stage Self-Charging Hybrid

For those who desire extra efficiency to go along with emotional performance, LS 500h AWD features Lexus’ first multi-stage self-charging hybrid powertrain.
