Lexus LS

Expert's Rating

3.8 (Good)

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

You'll have to get past its bold exterior design, though, to experience just how lush the 2019 Lexus LS is.

Major changes included:

In a sign of the times, the big LS loses the eight-cylinder motivation which has been found under it's hood since time immemorial. In its stead are two V6 variants: the twin-turbo 3.5-liter which powers the LS 500 and the LS 500 F Sport, and a hybridized 3.5-liter for the LS 500h. Read more »
