Editor's Overview

If there’s an example of “world-class” in luxury sedans the 2016 Lexus LS is certainly a candidate, with supreme comfort, exquisite detailing, superb construction, leading-edge technology, glorious luxury and impeccable manners. It goes eye-to-eye with the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, BMW 7 Series, Audi A8, Porsche Panamera and a very few others, and then beats them on value, besides.

It is safety and reliability.

I recently purchased my Lexus SUV and have found it to be an amazing vehicle. It is roomy enough to be comfortable on long trips which my wife and I take frequently.

- Tom B

Lexus is a very nice car.

The only thing I don't like about Lexus is it does not have a remote start on the key fob. It is on a phone app and you have to pay a monthly fee to use it.

- Trina Y

very secure and powerful engine, excellent design and comfort

like the luxury design and appealing features and innovating system
