Lexus has given its flagship Lexus LS saloon a complete overhaul, including sharper styling, new tech and the addition of a more focused F Sport version. It has made its show premiere at this week's Moscow motor show.
Two engine variants make up the new LS line-up: the petrol LS460 and hybrid LS600h. UK sales begin later this year.
External tweaks include the introduction of Lexus’s spindle front grille design — first seen on the firm’s CT200h last year — plus the option of LED lights front and rear.
Under the LS’s skin, Lexus has revised the Adaptive Variable Suspension in an effort to “suppress roll, pitch and heave vibration”. Steering and braking systems have also been refined for better response and comfort.
Additional insulation from engine, road and wind noise aims to boost the luxury saloon’s refinement.
To inject more sporting flair into the marque’s flagship saloon, a new F Sport model features a 10mm reduction in ride height compared with the standard limousine, plus beefier, more aggressive exterior styling, six-piston brake calipers up front and a Torsen limited-slip differential.
