With 2018 Lexus LS, this manufacturer starts with the new era of the luxury sedans, already known to, but almost forgotten in past years. The reason for that is mostly because of the whole line of the same cars and their design, which, let be honest, become boring and finally forgotten. After the great presence of the first model from the end of 80’s, many models have been shown, but it seems that nothing was good enough for the brand it represents. Finally, the manufacturer has learned the lesson, and started a new car line, with this model as first on that list.
There are no many surprises in 2018 Lexus LS in term of design and luxury modeling. It still has recognizable wide mesh front grille, rounded with rhomboidal chromatic line. Very thin and sharpen LED front lights are well incorporated in hood line, together with the small air intakes below them. A very long front end supports the luxury line of the car, which ends with the sedan like shaped rear end, rhomboidal sharpen rear lights, also rounded with chromatic lines. There are many details on the roof, rear window, and side of the car which follow the look of the silver sharp wrapped in modern metallic colors.
The cabin of Lexus has always been a synonym for the luxury and modernity, together with the high-technology and elegant presence. That is the case with 2018 Lexus LS, too. There is not only a wood in combination with the leather and chromatic details but also a couple of trim versions which offer different types of the wood. In term of technology, we can mention lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control, and automatic high beams with automated emergency braking. However, the luxury seats are adjustable in 25 ways, so the comfort is completed in new Lexus.
The base model of 2018 Lexus LS has a 3.5-liter V6 engine with 415 horsepower and 445 pound-feet of torque which increases the speed to 60 mph for 4.5 seconds. Even though the engine is slightly weaker than on competitors, it still promises great performances. We still do not know all details about the hybrid version, but knowing that Lexus had all models with hybrid engines, there are high chances that it will be a case with this car, too.
