Expert Review

By Kelley Blue Book Editorial Staff

Editor's Overview

Like Ben Stein dressed in Tour de France bicycle gear, the 2013 Lexus LS looks like a legitimate performer but underneath beats a familiar conservative heart. The Lexus LS 460 F Sport is available for those desirous of more dynamic and visual aggression, if not horsepower, but overall the Lexus LS continues to deliver what its fans truly want, abundant luxury and an insulated ride.
