EXECUTIVE EDITOR BOB GRITZINGER: The flagship has been the benchmark for Japanese luxury and this LS 460 L AWD nothing to detract from reputation. Other than the spindle grille, the car isn’t by any stretch. It has fairly plain a high beltline, and a distinct of bling. Kind of refreshing, and from certain angles, in an BMW 7-series way.

Inside, the car is all with touch controls, and a mouse-like shuttle controller takes some getting to — it’s easy to a mark and hit the wrong button on the screen. I suspect with it’d become second but novices should probably it to the passenger at first. Overall, the works without too much though — and thankfully are standard volume and tuning The layout is simple and smart, and all the and materials are of high quality.

The V8 isn’t the most powerful but it gets the job done with fuss. Shifts are so smooth and that it’s hard to there’s an eight-speed automatic in drivetrain. The AWD makes the car feel with excellent traction of surface. And flicking over to mode does wonders for up throttle response. The brakes are — really responsive and can be too until you get used to them. The is typical Lexus — smooth and steady.

Everything here is good, anything being bad. a formula for selling a bunch of cars.

ASSOCIATE ROAD EDITOR BRAD CONSTANT: The Lexus LS 460 L AWD is an impressive machine. It is of luxury touches meant to with other luxury such as the Audi A8 and Mercedes-Benz The interior is well laid-out quality materials everywhere almost everything you come in with is either wood or sort of soft-touch material. in the back is plentiful, but that’s to be with a long-wheelbase car. All of the are comfortable and provide support in all of the places. I also like the screen that functions as the hub and is controlled by a mouse-like joystick.

Most impressive is the comfort of the LS ride. Whether in comfort or mode, the ride is stellar. except for the biggest of bumps is up with ease. Plus the is quiet — it’s being in your own little I tuned into my favorite radio station and went cruise mode to enjoy a leisurely drive. That’s this car shines with a that’s simply relaxing.

With that said, is some power from the V8, but it seems to be lacking a bit. not grossly underpowered and it’s not quick, but I wouldn’t mind a more horsepower to pin me against the LS fine leather seats.
