F SPORT 4dr All-wheel Drive Sedan
2020 Lexus LS 500

2020 LS 500 Photos
Bold styling of the 2020 Lexus LS complements a high-tech interior with a particularly spacious back seat. The full-size, four-door, flagship luxury sedan is set up to deliver a cushiony, pampered ride. In addition to a standard gas-powered model, the LS comes in hybrid guise for substantially improved fuel economy.

For the 2020 model year, Lexus adds the Inspiration Series, finished in Deep Garnet with black 20-inch wheels. A white interior makes use of semi-aniline leather, with Kiriko glass trim. Lexus intends to build only 300 of them. As for regular models, the F Sport trim level gets updated brake pads and the white interior option.

Rather than V-8 power that's still used by some rivals, the LS 500 relies on a twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V-6 that develops 416 horsepower and 442 pound-feet of torque. A sophisticated 10-speed automatic transmission transmits that energy to either the rear wheels or all four.

In the hybrid LS 500h, twin electric motors work with a naturally aspirated 3.5-liter V-6 and a 44-kwh lithium-ion battery pack, Rated at 354 horsepower, (combined output), it's not feeble when the accelerator approaches the floor. Thrifty operation with the hybrid powertrain seems to suit the soft-riding LS. In an unusual configuration, a four-speed automatic transmission works in conjunction with the continuously variable transmission (CVT), intended to simulate the operation of a conventional 10-speed automatic.

For a big four-door, the LS 500h is quite frugal, EPA-rated at 25 mpg city, 33 highway, and 28 combined. All-wheel drive reduces those figures to 23/31/26 mpg. The LS 500 manages 19/30/23 mpg, or 18/27/21 mpg with AWD. Both versions run on premium gasoline.

As expected for a vehicle in the LS' price range, substantial collision avoidance and driver assistance technology is standard. Features include automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, adaptive cruise control, forward-collision warnings, active lane control, lane-departure warnings, road sign detection, and automatic high-beam assist.

An optional package adds front cross-traffic alert, lane change assist, and an active steering system that can automatically steer the car around obstacles at low speeds.

Because of low sales, the LS hasn't undergone crash testing by either the NHTSA or the IIHS.
