LS enhancements for 2024

The LS, Lexus’ flagship limousine, will benefit from technology, safety and comfort enhancements for the 2024 model year. The range structure is also being revised.

Across all versions, the LS adopts the latest third generation Lexus Safety System+. This includes a new Driver Monitor and Lane Change Assist function, while Intelligent Park Assist is provided for smooth and efficient self-parking manoeuvres.

The LS 500h Premium Pack is the new entry point to the LS line-up, its established specification extended to include a digital rear-view mirror, driver entry/exit facility and a massage setting for the front seats. There is also a colour head-up display and an enlarged, 12.3-inch multi-information display in the instrument binnacle.

At the top of the range, the Takumi grade gains massage functions for both the front and rear seats while the F Sport – now a model grade in its own right – incorporates all the new features of the Premium Pack and Takumi versions. Vehicle security has been enhanced with the adoption of Ultra Wide Band technology; as a result, a smart card key is no longer required.

The 2024 LS is available to order now with customer deliveries expected from January 2024.
