NEW LEXUS LS RAISES REFINEMENT, COMFORT AND TECHNOLOGY BENCHMARKS
The new Lexus LS can be distinguished by its elegant new grille, front bumper and taillight accents, as well as new high-grade LED headlights featuring advanced BladeScan™2 adaptive high-beam technology for more precise illumination.
Sports Luxury grades feature a "hollow chamber" alloy wheel design that lowers unsprung mass and reduces tyre noise.
Their standard 20-inch wheels are shod with a new run-flat tyre design, where the vertical spring rate of the tyre has been lowered to reduce the impact of road surface irregularities and even further harmonise the renowned ride comfort of the LS.
Inside the LS Sports Luxury cabin, Lexus has applied a new level of precision Japanese craftsmanship to further refine the superlative comfort offered by the leather-accented, power-adjustable front and rear outboard seating.
New multi-layered urethane seat cushioning features a top layer of low-resilience material that adapts to the occupant's body providing increased softness. A deeper seam between the cushion and side support allows greater flex in the upholstery and excellent vibration absorption.
This application of exquisite Takumi craftsmanship can be seen in the world-first use of a combination of platinum foil and Nishijin-ori textiles as one of several opulent extra-cost options for the interior door trim7.
Platinum foil around the door handles is complemented by a traditional organic woven fabric, creating a delicate shine across the interior surface of the doors.
Another available trim combination combines hand-pleated upholstery and exquisite Kiriko cut-glass ornamentation.
Lexus also offers a new exterior silver-hued paint finish7 across the range, Lustre Shadow, that incorporates aluminium flakes in a smooth mirror-like finish.
