Lexus reveals new hybrid and sports limos
Details of Lexus' new luxury limo, the LS, have been released by the Japanese maker.
The range starts at £71,995 for the LS 460 Luxury rising to £99,495 for the range-topping LS 600h L Premier. Also available is the LS 460 F Sport, marking the first F Sport variant for an LS model.
Every LS model gets a host of technology, including automatic bi-xenon headlights with LED daytime running lights, four-zone climate control, electrically-adjustable leather seats, 19-speaker Mark Levinson audio system with a DVD player linked to a 12.3-inch central display.
Lane-keep assist, blind spot monitoring and advanced pre-crash safety systems with collision avoidance assistance are also standard across the LS range.
F Sport trim builds on this specification with larger 19-inch wheels, Brembo brakes, limited-slip diff, uprated suspension, 'Sport' bumpers and skirts, perforated leather on both front seats and the steering wheel, aluminum pedals and aluminum-finish dash inserts.
The top-of-the-range L Premier has rear electric rear seats, with the left-hand-rear seat getting additional massage function.
Also included is Lexus' 'climate concierge' system which uses infra-red sensors to monitor the facial temperature of each occupant to individually adjust the four-zone climate control, seat heaters/coolers and the heated steering wheel.
In addition to all of this technology, the LS can also be specified with a night-vision system, which uses an infra-red camera to provide images during night driving conditions.
