The new LS features Lexus Teammate, which is the latest in advanced driving assist technologies. Lexus incorporated AI technologies centered on deep learning for predicting and responding to various situations possibly encountered during driving.

Furthermore, the new LS is available in Gin-ei Luster, a new exterior colour that achieves deep shadows and robust highlights, enabled by new paint technology.

The positioning of a vertical-themed character line in the corner parts of the front bumper expresses the excellence of the vehicle's stance. And giving the front bumper a structure in which the chrome trim on its lower edge wraps around to the sides expresses liveliness.

The chrome trim within the rear combination lamps has been switched to Piano Black to enhance harmony with the headlamps, as well as to enhance a sense of the vehicle's presence.

In the F Sport version of the new LS, the garnish of the sub-radiator grilles wraps around to the sides so as to underline the vehicle's wide stance. Other elements that help to accentuate the F Sport's more dynamic image include a dedicated color for the spindle grille and 20-inch wheels.

On the inside, in addition to the use of a touchscreen for improved operability, Lexus paid thoroughly uncompromising attention to detail through a collaboration involving traditional Japanese crafts such as Nishijin brocade and metal leaf decoration, aiming to create a high-quality interior atmosphere suitable for a brand flagship.

Controls on the steering wheel and center console have been uniformly colored black for improved visibility and a clear-cut impression. Also, a switch for displaying on the touch display the controls for the often-used seat heaters and steering wheel heater has been added to the center console for improved operability.

The multimedia system features a new touch display and is compatible with SmartDeviceLink, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto. Convenience has been greatly enhanced by, among other features, the ability to control the display screen and audio functions by using an iPhoneand Androidsmartphone linked to the 12.3-inch touch-operated wide display.

The digital rearview mirror features a larger high-resolution display for improved visibility of the area behind the vehicle.

Seat coverings feature deeper stitch points, and underlying seat pads feature low-resilience urethane. Vibration absorption and soft seating contribute to even more enhanced comfort.

In the LS 500h hybrid version of the new LS, increased battery assist during acceleration at often-used driving speeds so as to contribute to strain-free acceleration. Additionally, quietness has been improved by lowering maximum engine revolutions during departure acceleration.

In the LS 500 gasoline-engine version of the new LS, improved initial engine torque at often-used driving speeds leads to greater acceleration response. Improved shift timing and a wider acceleration range for each gear has resulted in less-frequent downshifts. These improvements make possible driving that is powerful and with room to spare.

Both the hybrid version and the gasoline-engine version of the new LS have undergone Active Noise Control and Engine Sound Enhancement tuning for improved quietness.
