The 2016 Lexus LS 460 is a full-size luxury sedan with history on its side. Way back in 1990, the original LS 400 swept the executive-sedan segment off its feet, offering tons of features and plenty of power along with unprecedented reliability and value. It gave the Germans notice that things would never be the same, and sure enough, brands such as Mercedes-Benz and BMW have since taken quite a few cues from the Japanese brand.

Here are five reasons why the 2016 Lexus LS 460 continues to shine.

Assertive Looks

Way back when, the Lexus LS was known for its somewhat conservative styling, but these days, it's a whole different story. Up front, the Lexus spindle grille brings plenty of attitude and gives the LS an aggressive face. The rear end is a little more restrained, but overall, this car makes a strong first impression. Looking at the LS from the side, however, you'll still see that the model's classically graceful profile is still present and accounted for.

Exquisite Interior

With any Lexus, you expect a high-quality cabin, and the LS 460 delivers exactly that. The attention to detail is exceptional, including the contrast stitching at the seams and the rich wood inlays. Everywhere you touch and look, you'll get the sense that Lexus went above and beyond. LS 460 drivers will never feel like they settled for second best.

Regal Ride

Looking for the smoothest ride in this segment? The LS 460 might just be the one. It's hard to pick a clear winner, but the LS's sophisticated suspension and ultra-absorbent shocks make it a top contender. No matter how bumpy the pavement, the LS 460 keeps its cool. The handling is solid through bends too, as the LS has good body discipline for a big sedan.

Refined V8 Engine

The LS 460 has a 4.6-liter V8 and is rated at 386 horsepower, which actually isn't a whole lot these days. But when you put the pedal to the metal, it feels just right. The power builds to a crescendo at redline, and there's a thrilling soundtrack to match. Plus, you have the choice of rear-wheel or all-wheel drive, so there's a configuration for every climate.

Advanced Technology

Lexus uses its Remote Touch system in the LS 460, which gives you a cool, mouselike controller on the center console. You also get a beautiful 12-inch display screen, and the system's capabilities are incredibly diverse. Techie types will definitely be impressed by the LS's ability.

Autotrader Says

Just like its predecessors, the 2016 Lexus LS 460 has reliability and value on its side. The bottom line? The Lexus LS will always be a must-drive in this class.
