  • Lexus LS h L 4dr Sedan AWD (L 8cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT) I ordered my dream, Lexus LS HL- 6/ So, Fav Features: The quiet car when it runs, the low gas usage, when the Check Hybrid System light is not on, etc.

    This new big hybrid from Lexus is deceptively fast. When you floor the gas pedal, the tach needle flicks almost instantly at the bidding of the continuously.

    Lexus LS: A new LS? What happened to the traditional Merc hand-me-down styling? Lexus wanted to create a real identity for this one, so the.

    In practical terms, you'll sacrifice space for a cleaner conscience too: The non-hybrid LS L had treated us so well during a trip to Los Angeles that we gave it a rating of Lexus doesn't expect to sell too many of these cars per year, but the company might be in for a surprise. Along with parallel parking, the car can back into perpendicular parking spaces, a feature that is generally easier to set up than parallel parking. The live traffic alerts feature the best integration with a navigation system we've seen on a factory-install.

    The Good The hybrid system in the Lexus LS h delivers good fuel economy and an excellent emissions rating for this size of car. The stereo system sounds fantastic and comes with a hard-drive music server. Live traffic reporting is integrated with the navigation system for smart destination routing. The Bad Aesthetically, the car appears refined but it's no real head-turner.

    Music organization could be a little better. The Bottom Line The Lexus LS h is a classy car with all the tech you could ask for, both under the hood and in the cabin. Its hybrid system gives it a better environmental pedigree than its luxury class competitors, and its driving performance is very good.

    The Lexus LS h arrived in our garage amid great expectations from our staff. The non-hybrid LS L had treated us so well during a trip to Los Angeles that we gave it a rating of Would its more expensive, more high-tech sibling maintain the family honor? In many ways it did, and even more so, but the LS h also stumbles inadvertently, as we've changed our rating criteria. This year we traded in our safety sub-rating, which wasn't something we could honestly test, for a design sub-rating, our one chance to inject some aesthetic opinions into our overall rating.

    And while the LS h is a very handsome, refined-looking car, has easy-to-use cabin electronics, and wonderful interior space, our consensus opinion was that it just doesn't have the beauty to push it over the top. To get a top score in our design sub-rating, a car has to be a real head-turner. In all other respects, the LS h blows away our rating system. Although much more expensive than the LS L, it justifies its price with more power, superior handling, and lower tailpipe emissions.

    Instead of making the LS h merely a hybrid version of the LS L, Lexus added rather than subtracted, increasing the size of the gas engine from 4.

    And all that power gets to the road through an all-wheel-drive system. On the LS L, we were stunned by the audio quality and loved the in-dash hard drive for storing music.

    The live traffic alerts feature the best integration with a navigation system we've seen on a factory-install. Then there are the cutting-edge features, such as automatic parallel parking and adaptive cruise control.

    Man versus machine parking We're no strangers to competitive parking , having previously put a Mini Cooper S into a curbside space of decreasing size. The car and the editors would be timed, and we would also count the number of maneuvers it took to get in the spot. The view from the back-up camera shows the Lexus getting close into its parking spot. We gave the Lexus the first try. Once the car was in reverse, the car's back-up camera displayed the street space to the right of the car, and framed the image in green.

    The frame indicates that the car has found a space in which it can fit. You can adjust the frame if it hasn't matched the parking space precisely by tweaking the arrows located on the screen. We let the car roll back into the spot, and it automatically turned the steering wheel appropriately to get the back end in, then the front end. When the car notified us that the guidance was done, the car was in the parking space. Our stopwatch said it took Cunningham went second, backing into the same parallel parking spot.
