The 2019 LS shares a front-engine platform with the high-performance LC coupe. The front-midship design delivers exceptional balance and allows for a lower overall height and driver position, enhancing handling thanks to a lower center of gravity. The result is sport-inspired stability, responsiveness and, ultimately, one of the most confident and engaging driving experiences we’ve ever created.
Numerous Lexus technologies work together for a unique approach to comfort and control. The Adaptive Variable Suspension features dampers that are continuously variable through 650 levels, allowing you to stiffen or soften the drive for enhanced response or comfort, based on your preferred drive mode. The front and rear suspension supports were created from cast aluminum, drastically improving handling stability and allowing the driver to receive direct feedback through the steering wheel.
Available on every LS model, full-time all-wheel drive delivers engine power to all four wheels, and a TORSEN® limited-slip center differential* efficiently distributes it between the front and rear axles, helping optimize traction, handling and control in a variety of driving conditions.
Sport S mode alters the powertrain for a more dynamic throttle response. For a higher level of responsiveness, Sport S+ mode modifies the next-generation Adaptive Variable Suspension (AVS), now featuring dampers that are continuously variable through 650 levels—an increase of 641 from the previous Lexus system. Comfort mode adjusts the AVS to reduce the feel of uneven road surfaces and balances throttle response and fuel efficiency. ECO mode moderates multiple settings for increased fuel efficiency. And, for the first time, a Custom mode enables you to create a unique profile of a combination of drive mode settings for a more personalized driving experience.
Striking LED headlamps and taillamps embody the ideal balance of sophistication and safety.
The epitome of sophisticated styling, this extraordinary vehicle offers the appearance of a seamless glass roof on the outside. In addition to sleek exterior design, the available roof allows more than twice the amount of light into the cabin than ever before.
To achieve the finest passenger experience we’ve ever created, the available Executive Package offers two exceptional levels of refinement. In addition to generous rear legroom, Lexus Climate Concierge and rear-seat butterfly headrests, the first level also features an extendable right-rear ottoman* and a class-leading rear-seat reclining angle,* as well as heated and ventilated seats with a massager. While the second level of the package adds the breakthrough style of Kiriko glass and hand-pleated trim. To help you make the most of every indulgence, the rear-seat passenger control panel enables you to manage the finest details—from individual climate zones to seven different massage settings.
Available extremely soft perforated leather is dyed all the way through, unlike leathers with conventional surface dyes. A higher grade of leather must be used since imperfections cannot be hidden.
Connectivity isn’t just limited to the front row. To help you make the most of every indulgence, the available rear-seat passenger touchscreen enables you to manage the finest details—from individual climate zones to seven different massage settings.
Offering luxurious seating for each and every passenger, available front and rear butterfly headrests serve to elevate the sophisticated aesthetic of the cabin while providing superior comfort.
Sustainably and responsibly sourced from the Agathis tree, available Art Wood Organic trim features a vibrant grain pattern reminiscent of flickering flames. Like nothing else in an automobile, or in nature itself, it’s created by a takumi craftsman slicing multiple sheets of wood across the grain and applying a natural gloss to enhance the vibrancy.
The power trunk can be opened and closed using a button on the key fob, on the trunk lid and next to the steering wheel. For added convenience when your hands are full, the open/close function can be performed by waving your foot under the rear bumper.
Every Lexus is backed by a comprehensive warranty that should give you miles and miles of confidence. But in case you wanted to extend your peace of mind, you'll find a variety of plans available, including ones for longer-term care, one that covers accessories and another in the event of a total loss of your Lexus due to theft, fire or accident. Take a look below to learn more about your standard coverage, as well as additional coverage options.
To help you change lanes with confidence, the Blind Spot Monitor is designed to detect and warn you of vehicles approaching or positioned in the adjacent lanes. For added peace of mind, the Rear Cross-Traffic Alert* and Braking system can help you when backing out of a parking space by notifying you of vehicles approaching from either side. And, if it senses a potential collision, the system can automatically brake your vehicle to a stop.
Helping to dissipate the force of a collision, crumple zones in the front and rear are intentionally designed to compress at a controlled rate, helping protect occupants within the more rigid passenger compartment.
With 10 innovative airbags throughout the cabin, safety is a top priority. In addition to these standard airbags, available knee airbags are innovatively designed to help second-row passengers maintain their position in the event of a collision.
