It doesn’t look all that new. But Lexus says there’s something to look forward to in the updated 2021 Lexus LS full size sedan.
One has to really know their cars to notice the changes such as the headlights with adaptive functions, vertical lines on the bumper corners, and sensors on the spindle grille. There are new taillights and dark accents instead of the usual chrome pieces
As for the cabin, the same story holds true with new switches for easier access to certain controls such as the seat heaters. The touchscreen is also new, complete with equally quick connectivity to Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
But what Lexus really focused on is giving the updated LS better ride comfort. The adaptive suspension has been fine tuned, along with seats that are said to be softer, with low resistance urethane to aid in bump and shock absorbency.
Apart from this, the Lexus LS500 and LS500h have received engine tweaks to improve low-end acceleration. Both variants also get Active Noise Cancellation and Engine Sound Enhancement, aiding the car’s overall comfort level.
And yes, safety is also given a boost with Lexus Teammate, a new driver assist system that debuts on this revised LS. It features aids like Parking Assist that controls steering, braking, accelerator pedal inputs, and even gear changes, all using cameras and sensors. It can likewise help maintain a safe distance from the car in front while on the highway, along with assisting drivers to safely overtake other vehicles.
With the new Mercedes-Benz S-Class set to debut this September, it looks like the Japanese luxury carmaker is making sure it keeps up and even stays ahead in the premium full size sedan game. The updated Lexus LS will go on sale later within the year.
