Poised yet powerful... A luxury family car for all.

The 2018 Lexus LS is a well-rounded super luxury car. It has a beautiful interior, seating upgrades, solid handling, and was completely redesigned, which i find stunning. It gets good gas mileage, and is extremely reliable. It's powerful, yet poised. Comfortable, with many high-end options, and useful upgrades. Magnificent beast.
