From the inventors of the prestige hybrid sedan—now with seven generations of industry-leading technological refinement—comes a benchmark. The LS 500h is the first multistage hybrid prestige luxury sedan and, with the instinctive feel of a 10-speed automatic transmission, the most responsive and fastest LS Hybrid yet.* It’s built on an advanced powertrain: a potent 354 total system horsepower* including a 24-valve Atkinson-cycle gas engine, powerful yet compact electric motors, and our lightest, most compact self-charging lithium-ion battery. Combining world-class craftsmanship, impressive fuel economy,* and the robust performance of dual power sources that are always charged and ready, it’s the breakthrough that recasts the entire concept of excellence in the category.
The 2020 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 low 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.
Ultra-compact Triple-Beam LED headlamps cast a striking presence and feature an intelligent high-beam system* that can automatically switch high beams to low beams when it detects vehicles ahead. And its unique visual arrangement is a new approach to headlamp design, improving both the breadth and dimension of light distribution. In the rear, LED combination taillamps cut through darkness while cutting a distinctive appearance. Their sculpted, aerodynamic shape helps direct airflow rearward and away from the vehicle sides for optimum handling and control.
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.
This available audio system, the first of its kind in the world,* is just one of the many ways the LS expresses omotenashi, the Japanese concept of hospitality. Sixteen channels, 2,400 watts and 23 speakers, including four in the ceiling and one of the largest subwoofers ever placed in a Lexus, were used to create the largest sound stage in the industry*—an unprecedented listening space for every person in every seat. It features Quantum Logic® Immersion, the most sophisticated 3D audio technology available in an automobile. The goal was to develop a benchmark system for the next 10 years. Only time will tell how much longer it will prove to be.
The razor-sharp handling of the Lexus high-performance line meets aggressive, track-inspired design with the LS F SPORT. It’s engineered and designed to thrill with exclusive suspension tuning and even more dynamic styling.
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.
Available Lexus Safety System+ A is the most progressive suite of Lexus driver assistance systems yet. It includes our most advanced lane assistance technologies,* as well as a way for the LS to scan the road ahead and alert you if a vehicle or pedestrian may be on a trajectory to make an impact with the vehicle.* Also, the LS can help brake or steer away if it detects an impending collision while still remaining in its lane.* With Lane Change Assist,* the LS can even help automatically change lanes for you when it’s safe to do so. It’s our vision of an accident-free world, one step closer to being realized.
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.
