Smooth, strong powertrains; fuel economy; amazing comfort; quiet interior; leading-edge technology
Although a little more conservative in look and feel than some others in its class, the LS sedans still deliver some of the world's top technology features.

The LS brings all of Lexus' technology and luxury know-how into a complete package--a full-size luxury sedan that is both exceedingly quiet, very powerful and in the case of the LS600h, cutting-edge hybrid tech.
