Toyota's flagship, the Lexus LS, sets a benchmark for soothing luxury motoring, providing a cosseting and isolating environment in a very spacious cabin. Even though the 4.6-liter V8 and first-ever-production eight-speed automatic date back to the car's 2007 introduction, the powertrain remains a paragon of response and smoothness. We measured 21 mpg overall -- impressive for this very large and swift sedan.

Overall Owner Satisfaction

Consumer Reports’ Annual Owner Satisfaction Survey can improve the chances of finding a compatible car match. How? Our survey data reveals whether, all things considered, owners would buy the same car again. The answer to that question is what determines our owner-satisfaction rating, which is a powerful piece of intel because it predicts how well a particular model will satisfy other owners.

Joseph M., CT (2016 Lexus LS)

"It GOES whenever I want it to accelerate and STOPS whenever I want it to stop. The newer safety features assist me in making safer driving decisions and the equipment to make them so."

Robert M., CA (2016 Lexus LS)

"Very, very quiet, very smooth suspension system, superb acceleration with the 8 cylinder engine, very comfortable seats and an outstanding rear view camera. This is my 3rd consecutive Lexus LS."

Anonymous, FL (2016 Lexus LS)

"Acceleration is comparable to other cars in its class. It handles like it is riding on a cloud. While it does not engage the driver like a BMW it goes where it's pointed, stops well and transports its occupants from point "A" to point "B" as comfortably as possible in total quiet."

JOHN S., FL (2016 Lexus LS)

"This all wheel drive is a replacement of a rear wheel drive. I find it to be much better driving in rain, curves & hills. Just navigates and hugs the pavement extremely well. Have lost a minor amount of acceleration when passing, but still will get me around several cars quickly & comfortably. Love this brand & model of car and I am picky!"

If we don’t have sufficient data, a similar model might be used to form the owner-satisfaction score.
