The Lexus flagship sedan delivers luxurious, highly refined, and fuss-free motoring with a comfortable and serene ride. It has an exceptionally quiet cabin and is laden with features. Fit and finish is excellent. Its recent freshening made handling a bit more responsive while retaining the silky ride. The strong V8 and eight-speed automatic deliver a very smooth and responsive package. The extended-length version has generous rear-seat room. A self-parking feature and all-wheel drive are optional. The LS 600h hybrid comes with standard AWD. Despite retaining some conventional knobs and buttons, the mouse-controlled infotainment system is complicated and distracting to use. A redesign, powered by a twin-turbo V6 and outfitted with a swoopier body, comes later in 2017.
