Hand-pleated door linings, Shimamoku wood patterns and decorative trim inspired by Edo Kiriko cut glass complement the ‘Takumi’-crafted leather seats in the LS' whisper-quiet cabin.
True 'Omotenashi' welcome
Inspired by Japanese hospitality, when you touch the door handle the new LS rises to welcome and assist your entry, while the front seat bolsters lower automatically to greet you as you take your seat .
Lexus Safety System+ A
Reassuringly, the new 2018 LS is also equipped with next-generation Lexus Safety System+ A . The system’s advanced technology now includes the world’s first pedestrian detection function with active steering.
Do not use the Lexus Safety System instead of normal driving under any circumstances and please read the instructions before operating the system. The driver is always responsible for driving safely.
28-way adjustable seats with Shiatsu massage
To keep you refreshed, the 28-way adjustable front seat can perform shiatsu massages, while rear seat passengers can enjoy a reclining ottoman with seven shiatsu massage programmes and extra heaters.
Mark Levinson® Premium Surround
