The 2015 Lexus LS 460 stays true to the formula that got the brand started 25 years ago. A quiet, competent luxury sedan, the LS manages to take the stress out of driving and provide an opulent cocoon for five people.
What's New For 2015
For 2015, the LS 460 gets a new multimedia system and the latest Lexus Enform app suite for integration of various features, as well as Enform Remote, which can lock and unlock the car through a smartphone app.
Choosing Your Lexus LS 460
The LS 460 is available primarily in two forms with various option packages. Most buyers will choose the base vehicle, but Lexus also offers the more aggressive F Sport package, with 19-inch wheels, a revised suspension and larger brakes. Both models feature a 4.6-liter V8 engine with up to 386 horsepower and an eight-speed automatic. Rear-wheel drive is standard and all-wheel drive is an option. A long-wheelbase model with five inches more space for rear seat passengers is also available.
The F Sport doesn't make the LS a luxury sport sedan in the same vein as a Jaguar XJR or Maserati Quattroporte, so it's best to stick to the standard suspension to preserve the isolation that the Lexus does best. Options, unfortunately, are lumped into expensive packages.
