Benefits of Driving a 2012 Lexus LS Models Sedan

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 LS460--and especially the LS600h--serve as the luxury and technology flagship for the Lexus line. 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.

What's new for 2012?

Nebula Gray Pearl paint has been added for 2012. Smoky Granite Mica has been dropped. A USB port and rear-seat headphone jacks have been added. Otherwise, the LS carries over very similar to last year's model.

Model Strengths

  • Smooth, strong powertrains
  • fuel economy
  • amazing comfort
  • quiet interior
  • leading-edge technology

Model Review

The Lexus LS 460 has a quiet, yet strong personality, featuring a 380-horsepower, 4.6L V8 and very smooth-shifting 8-speed automatic. Rear-wheel drive is standard for this big luxury sedan, but all-wheel drive is available (the same 4.6L engine is rated at 357 hp when optioned with all-wheel drive). Then there's also the all-wheel-drive LS 600h, which serves as the tech flagship for the Lexus lineup. It combines a 5.0L V8 engine with a strong electric-motor system and large-capacity battery pack. Both models are capable of getting to 60 mph in about five and a half seconds. Fuel economy is actually quite good for a large luxury car in either model: the LS 460 gets 16 mpg city, 24 highway, while the LS 600h gets 20 city/22 highway.
