FLAGSHIP LS SEDAN GAINS MORE TECHNOLOGY TO MAINTAIN POSITION AS THE ULTIMATE IN REFINED LUXURY
The flagship Lexus LS 500 and LS 500h now deliver an even more refined luxury experience than before with updates to the 2023 range bringing seamless access to information, communication and entertainment via the latest connectivity technology.
Part of the improved usership experience comes with the expansion of Lexus Connected Services1 and more multimedia and remote functions, while wireless Apple CarPlay®2 is now standard alongside wired Android Auto™3.
The most up-to-date Lexus multimedia system allows occupants to interact through the new touchscreen display (screen size remains 12.3 inches) which replaces the previous touchpad in the centre console.
The new shape of the centre console is refined to allow easy smartphone storage without needing to open or close a lid.
Finally, Lexus Remote Connect features allow owners to remotely start the car's engine and lock/unlock the doors.
The standard Panoramic View Monitor4 - which combines images from the front, rear, left and right side cameras of the vehicle and projects them on the centre screen - now has a new underbody transparent display function.
Exterior changes are minimal with deletion of the Lexus badge on the boot lid, deletion of Hybrid badge on the lower rear doors, deletion of blue hue from the Lexus brand logo badge and '500h' model name badge.
The LS 500 continues to be powered by the smooth 3.5-litre twin-turbocharged V6 petrol engine producing 310kW and a sublime 600Nm from 1600-4800 rpm for effortless performance, while the LS 500h features a naturally aspirated V6 of the same capacity with a multi-stage hybrid system offering 264 kW for the perfect blend of performance and economy.
These subtle but significant enhancements to the LS 500 and LS 500h follow a comprehensive update in February 2021, and culminate to ensure the flagship Lexus sedans maintain their position as leaders in full-size rear-drive luxury.
The revised LS 500 and LS 500h are now on sale priced from $195,9208.
