3.5L V6 ENGINE

The hybrid system’s V6 engine integrates advanced technologies that include Dual VVT-i and D-4S fuel injection system. Lightweight components further contribute to both powerful driving and outstanding environmental performance.

ALL-NEW GA-L (GLOBAL ARCHITECTURE-LUXURY) PLATFORM

The all new LS shares a front-engine platform with the high-performance LC coupe. The all-new front-midship design delivers exceptional balance and allows for a lower overall height and driver position, enhancing handling thanks to a lower center of gravity. The result is sport-inspired stability, responsiveness and, ultimately, one of the most confident and engaging driving experiences we’ve ever created.

DRIVE MODE SELECT

Drive mode select provides integrated control of multiple systems to let you tune performance to suit your driving style. You can select and change between six modes: Normal, Eco, Comfort, Sport S, Sport S+ and Custom mode.

EV DRIVE MODE

At low speeds, EV drive mode uses an electric motor for a silent and zero-emission drive.

ADAPTIVE VARIABLE SUSPENSION

The front suspension utilizes built-in shock absorbers to provide supple ride comfort. The development of a ball joint stud type cantilevered bushing for the rear suspension contributes to a sophisticated blend of handling stability and ride comfort.

MULTI STAGE HYBRID SYSTEM

The LS hybrid engine provides perceived acceleration that matches the actual acceleration as soon as the accelerator pedal is pressed as well as rhythmical shifting, enabling the driver to enjoy a new kind of driving performance.

Comfort and Design


MARK LEVINSON® QLI REFERENCE SURROUND SOUND SYSTEM

This newly-developed 16-channel 3D surround sound system drives 23 speakers. The 7 Unity speakers, ceiling speakers and QLI surround technology fill the cabin with uniform sound quality, enveloping the listener in natural realistic sound with the precise positioning of a live sound stage.

LEXUS CLIMATE CONCIERGE

Lexus Climate Concierge coordinates with the 4-zone independent temperature control to automatically control the auto air conditioner with the seat heaters and seat ventilation to provide optimal comfort for each occupant.

22-WAY POWER LEFT REAR SEAT AND POWER OTTOMAN

22-way powered left rear seat with a reclining ottoman, and extra heaters create a spacious interior which allow the passengers to relax in harmony.

REAR REFRESH SEATS WITH WARMING FUNCTION

Air bladders integrated into the seat cushion and seatback are inflated to apply pressure to the occupant’s back and thighs. The system also utilizes dedicated heaters to promote relaxation through repeated warming and cooling.

REAR SEAT ENTERTAINMENT SYSTEM

The rear seat entertainment system delivers an outstanding video experience via an 11.6-inch LCD screen offering playback from Blu-ray™ and SD card.

ELECTRONICALLY CONTROLLED AIR SUSPENSION (WITH ACCESS MODE)

In addition to the vehicle height adjustment function which can be switched between Normal and High settings, access mode automatically raises the vehicle to make ingress and egress easy.

EASY ACCESS BUCKLES (FRONT SEATS)

To make the front seatbelts easy to use, the seatbelt buckle lifts up when the door is opened and then moves back down once the seatbelt is fastened.

HAND-PLEATED UPHOLSTERY

Hand-crafted diamond shaped pleats adorn the vehicle’s cabin for a delicate touch of exquisite originality.

Safety Features


LARGE COLOR HEAD-UP DISPLAY

The system helps the driver intuitively understand warnings and take action to avoid potential hazards with animations and information projected on the large 24-inch display. The screen is divided into different areas to effectively bring information to the driver’s attention.

PANORAMIC VIEW MONITOR

Video that provides the driver with an image of the vehicle as if viewed from above is displayed on the 12.3-inch EMV (Electro Multi-Vision) display. It helps the driver to check conditions around the vehicle that are difficult to see in real time.

14 SRS AIRBAGS

The LS features dual-stage SRS airbags (Front seats), SRS knee airbags (Front seats), SRS side airbags (Front and outboard rear seats) and SRS curtain shield airbags (Front and rear seats). SRS seat cushion airbags (Outboard rear seats) are also available for the power rear seats.

AUTOMATIC REAR SEAT RECLINING
