ADDITIONAL MODEL INFORMATION

The Lexus brand decided to redesign the car at the very top of their lineup, the LS 500. We're taking a look at the efficient hybrid version, the 2018 Lexus LS 500h.

354 Horsepower

As far as power is concerned, the LS 500h has a total output of 354 horsepower. It also boasts Lexus' lightest self-charging lithium-ion battery. This hybrid can really get moving quickly, as this is the fastest LS hybrid ever produced hitting 60 miles per hour in just 5.2 seconds.

Triple Beam LEDs

It took almost a decade, but progress has certainly been made in the full redesign of the LS 500. It's now wider and lower, with a more aggressive grille. The one well-equipped trim level has triple beam LEDs up front, LED tailights and stylish 19-inch wheels.

33 Miles Per Gallon

Behind the wheel, there's a selection of drive modes to choose from to really suit your mood. Feeling sporty? Operate the paddle shifters, select the Sport Plus mode and have at it. All that in a hybrid that returns 33 miles per gallon on the highway with the Rear Wheel Drive. Yes, you're saving on gas, and you're not sacrificing performance.

12.3-Inch Display

Inside the LS 500h, there's really too much to list, but there are a few features that do stand out. The available semi-Aniline leather, premium wood trim and 12.3-inch high resolution display are just a few. There's also the available full color 24-in head-up display, which is actually one of the world's largest. Also consider the innovative Mark Levinson Reference Audio System, which has 3D audio technology, 2,400 watts, 23 speakers and is really a one-of-a-kind sound system.

Touchpad

Inside, there's a remote touchpad controller that lets you control navigation and multimedia, even climate control. The touchpad controller looks pretty cool, but when it comes to function, it can be slightly frustrating to use until you fully get the hang of it.

Autotrader Says

In the market for a luxury hybrid? Put the 2018 Lexus LS 500h on your test drive list if you haven't already. After all, it's the car that serves as the symbol for everything the Lexus brand stands for.
