It’s been more than three decades since the Lexus LS made its debut, and the luxury car market hasn’t been the same since. Today, the 2020 model continues to introduce new approaches to comfort, innovative conveniences and a polished driving experience.
The current generation of the LS is available in three distinct forms: LS 500, LS 500 F SPORT and LS 500h. Each is built on the premium rear-wheel drive platform first introduced in the LC 500. The result is a balance of stability and responsiveness that provides an engaging driving experience.
Under the hood of the LS and LS F SPORT sits a V6, powered by twin turbochargers that are among the world’s most efficient in a production vehicle. This meticulously crafted powerplant is capable of delivering 416 hp,1 442 lb-ft of torque,1 and a zero-to-60 time of 4.6 seconds.1,2
Inside, the LS is a showcase of master craftsmanship and cutting-edge design. Once seated, you start to notice ambient lighting inspired by Japanese andon lanterns and Shimamoku Espresso wood trim that engages you with bold contrasts of light and dark.
Crafted for more performance, the Lexus LS F SPORT is available with Lexus’ most advanced vehicle-dynamics control system, Active Rear Steering and 20-inch wheels with a Dark Graphite finish.
For those seeking instant torque paired with increased efficiency, Lexus offers the LS 500h—the first multistage hybrid prestige luxury sedan. It’s the most responsive and fastest LS Hybrid yet.
The LS line also plays a key role in bringing the Lexus vision of an accident-free world one step closer to reality. The Lexus Safety System+ A3 offers our most progressive suite of driver assistance systems and includes Front Cross-Traffic Alert4 and Lane Change Assist.5
The advanced technology in the LS doesn’t stop with safety. The 2020 LS features both Apple CarPlay®6 integration and Amazon Alexa7 compatibility, as well as the Lexus Enform8 suite of connected technologies that provides services like emergency assistance and available onboard Wi-Fi.9
With a racecar-inspired driving platform and intuitive connectivity features, the 2020 Lexus LS remains true to its hallmark as the original luxury disruptor.
