This is my 4th Lexus and my first LS and it won't be my last. This is a true work of art and a brilliant machine. The car rockets from zero to 60, opens up and is cruise-like at 70 MPH plus. The ride is so quiet and serene it is easy to forget you are actually in a car even at high speeds. The LS is unbelievably quiet even at all speeds & in the city. Even driving at 50 MPH with the sun roof open is quieter than most vehicle with a closed sunroof. The interior is impeccable and is likely nicer than many living rooms you will encounter. The car surrounds you in luxury at every turn from the plush heated/vented seats and roomy feel to the easy to reach controls and tech features. Overall a gem.
Mark Levinson is utterly brilliant in this vehicle, large screen for nav unit, power trunk, rear sunshade, parking sensors great for tight garage parking, backup camera and bluetooth sound quality is top notch.
Voice activated navigation needs improvement and would like to see more rim & tire option packages for a vehicle in this price range. The stock rim is bland at best.
