What Is the 2020 Lexus LS?
The five-seat LS 500 is Lexus’ flagship full-size luxury sedan. It’s powered by a 416-horsepower, twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V-6 that drives a 10-speed automatic transmission. Rear- and all-wheel-drive versions are offered, along with a gas-electric hybrid drivetrain in the LS 500h. The LS competes with the Audi A8, BMW 7 Series and Genesis G90.
What’s New on the 2020 Lexus LS?
A limited-edition Inspiration Series joins the LS lineup. It features Deep Garnet exterior paint, 20-inch black-chrome wheels, a white semi-aniline leather interior, Kiriko glass trim and a Mark Levinson premium stereo. Only 300 Inspiration Series LS sedans will be produced.
What Features in the 2020 Lexus LS Are Most Important?
The LS reminds you it’s a no-compromises luxury sedan by offering standard features like a heated steering wheel, heated and ventilated front seats, a power rear sunshade, navigation with a 12.3-inch screen, rain-sensing windshield wipers, and a hands-free power trunk lid. Options include a panoramic glass roof, an air suspension, a head-up display, heated rear seats and power-adjustable rear seats with a massage function.
Should I Buy the 2020 Lexus LS?
The LS is less expensive than its German luxury competitors, but its starting price is similar to the G90’s. Ride quality is controlled, while the steering is direct. If you’re looking for eco-friendliness in a large luxury sedan, it’s worth noting that the LS 500h’s EPA-estimated gas mileage is impressive. Unfortunately, the Remote Touch multimedia controller continues to be frustrating to use; be sure to test the system thoroughly before buying.
