Continuing the model's established success, the unchanged 2009 Lexus LS 600h L is a full-size luxury sedan, powered by a gas-electric hybrid system. One of the most sophisticated hybrid systems on the market, the combination of a 5.0L V8 gas engine with a high-output, permanent magnet, electric-drive motor makes for a total of 438 hp. All-wheel drive, the LS 600h features a two-speed electronically-controlled continuously variable transmission (ECVT). In so many ways, this is an amazing machine, which is not only efficient but fast, traveling zero to 60 mph in 5.5 seconds. EPA-estimated fuel economy for the LS 600h achieves 20 mpg city/22 mpg hwy and 20 mpg in combined driving. Among the many standard safety features are stability and traction control, antilock brake system, emergency brake assist and every airbag you can imagine, including dual-front knee bags and side-curtain bags. With four doors and a five-passenger capacity, Lexus LS 600h L performance, fuel economy and stunning good looks are surpassed by few cars.
