Lexus LS 460 Review

Lexus' flagship sedan is an ideal marriage of luxury and performance, offering both technology-aided comfort and driver-pleasing power and handling. The F Sport edition of the LS 460 adds fierce black mesh grille and 19-inch wheels that complement the sport sedan's already aggressive looks. Also unique to the F Sport is Adaptive Variable Air Suspension and Brembo brakes, providing even more control and quicker response. Owners can adapt the LS 460's feel according to their own mood with the Drive More Select, changing from Dr. Jekyll to Mr. Hyde as quickly as it takes to toggle between comfort mode and sport plus. Inside, the attention to detail is apparent with premium wood trim, park assist and standard touch-screen navigation.
