The all-new Lexus LS will make its debut at an exclusive event in San Franciso later this month
12 July 2012

The 2013 Lexus LS will be unveiled at an event in San Francisco this month, ahead of a likely public debut at the Moscow motor show in August.

The American-market model line-up will consist of the LS460, LS460 F Sport and long-wheelbase versions of both the LS460 and LS600.

Little is known about the look of the new Lexus LS luxury saloon, but it is likely to carry the firm’s new look front face that features on the latest GS and RX models. F Sport cars will carry more exaggerated body styling.

The Lexus LS will be sold as a hybrid-only model in the UK.

Our Verdict

Lexus LS

The Lexus LS is a huge, high-quality limo. Great refinement, but high running costs and no Mercedes-Benz S-Class

I think it looks brilliant, and quite good value too, especially with those great engines.

Good call to sell as hybrids.

The previous thirsty V8 put off many potential buyers.

Though it's only a front three-quarter view, the new 'face' looks totally anonymous. It reminds me of those disguised cars used in breakdown ads! And how does it relate to the GS and RX front ends exactly?

That IS the current model isn't it?!

    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq
  • Audi Q7 e-tron

    Expensive and flawed but this understated diesel-electric Audi Q7 has a lot to offer

    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out
  • BMW X3
    First Drive
    15 October 2017
    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again
  • Vauxhall Insignia Country Tourer
    First Drive
    13 October 2017
    Off-road estate is now bigger, more spacious and available with torque-vectoring all-wheel drive, but is it enough to make its German rivals anxious?
