Today, April 21, Lexus representatives officially announced the start of sales of the updated LS flagship sedan in Russia. You can notice the changes in comparison with the previous body immediately on the front side – the manufacturer uses a new bumper with a branded radiator grill, there you can also see impressive “nostrils” acting as air intakes, as well as adaptive headlights with the new BladeScan AHS system. The representatives of the company also praised the latest technology of car painting – Lunar Silver allows to apply paintwork with a thickness of only one micron.
Changes, of course, are also in the interior – the updated Lexus LS boasts hand-applied trim, expensive materials and, of course, digitalization. For example, the user gets access to the 12.3-inch display of the multimedia system, which is equipped with the function of instant access to the most popular functions of the user. And a little higher from this screen is a digital rear-view mirror – it displays the image from the rear camera when parking. Also, the flagship sedan received many smart functions – the car warns of the threat of a frontal or side collision, is equipped with an automatic braking function, the system also recognizes pedestrians and displays the necessary information on the head-up display.
But in the engine compartment, fans of the brand will not find anything new – the manufacturer uses the same 3.5-liter V6 petrol engine with two turbochargers, which is paired with a ten-speed automatic gearbox. True, company representatives said that the updated version of the flagship received an improved adaptive suspension, thanks to which it will be much more comfortable to ride on bumps.
For the basic version of the updated flagship Lexus LS (350), you will have to pay 7 147 000 rubles, while the more advanced equipment LS 500 will cost a potential buyer at least 9 514 000 rubles.
