The Lexus LS sets a benchmark for soothing luxury motoring, providing a cosseting and isolating environment in a very spacious cabin. Even though this generation's 4.6-liter V8 and eight-speed automatic transmission date back to the 2007 makeover, the powertrain remained a paragon of response and smoothness. We measured 21 mpg overall -- impressive for this very large and swift sedan.

"Handles well and has plenty of acereration"

RICHARD S., OH (2015 Lexus LS)

"The new style of electronic climate control, audio, control and especially navigation is POORLY designed. I have had Leased Lexus for 25 yrs and never had any problem wi any new things they added to the new model, but have lot of issue with wi this one 2015 LS 46 design. They have wasted lot of valuable space in the console and placed useless hand rest and all kinds of buttons that are hardly used. Instead could have designed a place for cell phone, keys, more cups and water holders, etc... The"

Anonymous, OR (2015 Lexus LS)

"This vehicle comes with Economy and Sports setting for the engine. I have never felt the need for the Sport setting. The economy setting has all the responsiveness I need."

Jon B., NC (2015 Lexus LS)

"smooth"

Albert W., IA (2015 Lexus LS)

"The V8 provides smooth, accessible power whether taking off from a stop or highway passing. The handling is surprisingly good for such a large luxury vehicle."

Anonymous, TX (2015 Lexus LS)

"This vehicle is a beautiful ride! It is a large car, so must allow for sufficient room when turning corners, passing from one lane to another, etc. It is very well made, tight. The navigation system--GPS is excellent. An all-around quality vehicle. Yes, I would purchase this LS again, but hopefully, do better job with negotiating the cost; it is an expensive vehicle. I would recommend this vehicle to anyone who wants a very stand-up car that will go the distance. Drawback is mileage, not good."

"The acceleration is slow for size of the engine."

"A truly comfortable and quiet car my best yet"

Anonymous, CA (2015 Lexus LS)

"It is a very comfortable car; especially like the ability to set preferences as to mirrors and seats for individual drivers so we don't have to spend time adjusting them numerous times as we take turns driving on long trips."

Anonymous, WI (2015 Lexus LS)

"Often, magazine car reviewers say that the Lexus LS460 is "too quiet" and "too boring." They write it is "too vanilla" in a comparable world of other, more exciting flavors. Sometimes you WANT vanilla. This is the fourth Lexus LS model we have owned since 1992. You can ride in this car for 12 hours at a time and still arrive unfatigued. Friends who have other luxury makes marvel at the smoothness of our Lexus when they ride with us. These cars are truly "bullet-proof" and incredibly reliable. We"

FRANK O., UT (2015 Lexus LS)

"I wish the seats in my car were more bolstered like in the sports pkg and while it rides very well, it does not ride nearly as well as my 2007 LS."
