The 2017 Lexus LS meets lofty expectations of what a flagship luxury sedan should be, and for good reason. It was the Lexus LS that turned the flagship luxury sedan category on its head more than a quarter-century ago by introducing new and daring approaches to unstinting comfort, innovative conveniences and polished driving smoothness.
Those attributes, along with painstaking craftsmanship, once again stand at the fore in the 2017 LS 460, which offers standard- and long-wheelbase models and a choice of rear-wheel drive or Lexus all-weather drive.
The 2017 Lexus LS offers a raft of driver-assist technologies, including the Advanced Pre-Collision System (A-PCS) with Collision Avoidance Assist. This system is designed to assist the driver in avoiding or mitigating frontal collisions with vehicles and pedestrians, under certain conditions. At speeds lower than 24 mph, this technology can help the driver to avoid accidents by automatically bringing the LS to a full stop.
