8 Reasons We love the 2015 Lexus LS460L
Special Thanks to Lexus of Ann Arbor Michigan http://www.lexusofannarbor.com Like us on Facebook! https://www.facebook.com/vehiclevirgins Here are the reasons why we love the 2015 Lexus LS460L. Review info: 2015 Lexus LS460L 4.6L V8 360hp/347 lb-ft (AWD) 386hp/357lb-ft (RWD) MPG: 16/24 (RWD) 16/23 (AWD) 0-60: 5.4 (RWD) 6.0 (AWD) 8 speed automatic The LS460 beautifully fills the gap between the cheaper Hyundai Equus and more expensive BMW 7 series, Audi A8 and Mercedes S class. With gorgeous styling, impressive material quality, fantastic reliability and enough space for a first string basketball team, the LS460L is poised for success. Under the hood lies a 4.6L V8 which produces 360hp and 347 lb ft of torque. Interestingly the RWD model produces nearly 30 more hp than the awd version we are testing. This power differential is due to the changes to the Exhaust system. 0-60mph happens in 6 seconds, a decent time for a 4700lb sedan. The LS cabin is incredibly isolated from the outside world. Road noise is practically non existent, a small hint at why this is such an exceptional luxury vehicle. Draped in semi aniline leather, alcantara and stunning bamboo trim the interior of the 460L is first class. For those seeking the next level of luxury, the optional executive class seating package is available. This offers 4 zone climate control, massaging seats, an ottoman style legrest and more. Most incredible however is the vehicles optional infrared sensors. These measure the surface temperature of rear seat occupants and automatically adjust the climate surrounding each passenger to the perfect level. The front seats are very comfortable in the LS. When entering the vehicle you instantly notice the behemoth 12.3 in LCD screen. Thankfully it is operated by a touchpad as opposed to the annoying joystick used in some lexus vehicles. The graphics in the entertainment system are top notch and overall the system is easy to use. This is of course the long wheel base variant, so rear space has been prioritized. As you can see there is endless head and legroom. Passengers in all seats would be comfortable on even the longest of road trips. And due to Lexuses phenomenal reliability, a cross country road trip wouldn't even be out of the question. The driving characteristics of the LS do not promote aggressive behavior, this car is a luxury cruiser, not a nimble sports sedan. The chief priority is a serene, limousine like passenger experience, providing the highest degree of comfort and isolation. And Lexus has accomplished this quite well. The steering is light and the LS460 is effortless to drive. No matter which seat you reside in the Lexus, you will be relaxed. This model is fitted with the optional Mark Levinson system which sounds fantastic. The bass is and the treble is. Safety technology is plentiful in the LS, this car features a Pre-Collision system that is able to detect potential frontal collisions and will retract seatbelts while preparing to increase braking pressure when you engage the brakes. Radar Cruise control is able to sense the speed of the vehicle ahead of you to maintain a constant following distance and even stop and reaccelerate the car when traveling at speeds below 24 mph. If you are looking for a competitively priced Luxury Sedan thats very comfortable, full of technology and exceptionally reliable the LS460 is definitely a car to consider. It is not as powerful as the new Mercedes S Class, but with a base price of $95,000, the german limousine is in a different segment all together. Special thanks to Lexus of Ann Arbor.
