What's New in the 2020 Lexus LS 500?

Lexus pretty much left the LS alone for 2020. The LS 500 will offer a limited-run (300 units) Inspiration Series that will include semi-aniline leather interior, black instrument panel and carpet, blue LED Kiriko-design passenger display, 23-speaker Mark Levinson surround-sound audio system and 20-in black alloy wheels. See the 2020 Lexus LS  models for sale near you

Which LS 500 is the Best?

You definitely don't "need" anything beyond the base trim level, which is exceptionally well equipped. However, the F Sport package would be good to consider if you're seeking the most involved driving experience, while one of the interior upgrade packages will be good if you plan on pampering guests (or being pampered yourself) in the backseat.

How Much Does a 2020 Lexus LS 500 Cost?

The 2020 Lexus LS is available as either the gas-only LS 500 or the hybrid LS 500h. Both are available with AWD. The LS 500 can also be trimmed out with the F Sport performance package. All prices include the $1,025 factory destination charge.

The LS 500 (RWD $76,475; AWD $79,695) comes standard with 19-in wheels, an adaptive suspension, automatic LED headlights, automatic wipers, an automatic door closer, a hands-free power trunk lid, auto-dimming mirrors, parking sensors and automatic reverse braking, blind spot and rear cross-traffic alert systems, forward-collision warning with pedestrian and bicycle detection, automatic emergency braking, lane-keeping assist, adaptive cruise control, proximity entry and push-button start, power sunroof, dual-zone climate control, heated and ventilated 16-way power seats, driver memory functions, leather upholstery, a heated steering wheel, a power rear sunshade, the Remote Touch infotainment system (a 12.3-in display, a touchpad center console control), 4G LTE Wi-Fi, integrated navigation, USB ports, Apple CarPlay, Amazon Alexa integration and a 12-speaker sound system with HD and satellite radio, a CD player and a media player interface.

The LS 500 F Sport (FWD $82,475; AWD $85,695) gets special suspension tuning, styling, 20-in wheels and interior trim elements, plus 28-way sport seats and sport gauges. The Performance package adds to that variable gear ratio steering, active rear steering and active stabilizers.

The LS 500h (RWD $80,985; AWD $84,205) is equipped essentially like the LS 500, only it features the hybrid powertrain.

The Interior Upgrade package adds quilted semi-aniline leather upholstery and interior trim, a 28-way power driver seat with massage, power front seat-belt buckles, an Ultrasuede headliner and heated rear seats. The Luxury package adds all of that plus the matching 28-way power passenger seat, 18-way power-reclining rear seats with memory functions and knee airbags, 4-zone automatic climate control, power rear side sunshades and a 7-in touchscreen controller. The Executive package adds all of the above plus airplane-style "butterfly" headrests, heating and massaging added to the back seat and a power ottoman on the right-rear side. Special "Kiriko" glass trim can further be added to the Executive package.

Stand-alone options include a panoramic sunroof, adaptive LED headlights, an adaptive air suspension, a surround-view parking camera, a head-up display and a 23-speaker Mark Levinson sound system.

2020 Lexus LS 500 vs the competition

2020 Mercedes-Benz S-Class -- It's more expensive than the LS, but that will be a common thread here. The S-Class has long been the benchmark in this segment, and that's no different today. A powerhouse of technology and engineering.

2020 BMW 7 Series -- The 7 Series used to be the undisputed, engaging-to-drive flagship sedan, but honestly, it's become more comfort-focused with this latest generation. Actually, it's a bit more like the LS used to be, while the LS has added more verve.

2020 Audi A8 -- The A8 was all-new for 2019 and is a technological tour de force. Its conservative styling makes the LS seem almost otherworldly.

Used Mercedes-Benz S-Class -- The initial depreciation hit on a Mercedes S-Class is enormous, so if you're attracted to it but scoff at paying so much, a used or certified pre-owned version could be a smart purchase.
