Back in 2013, with the improved fourth generation version of its large luxury saloon, the LS, Lexus looked to showcase all it could be. Buyers got a choice of either conventional or hybrid petrol V8 power and could opt for either standard or sharpened driving experiences. What didn't change was that luxury, refinement and sheer attention to detail still got top billing. Let's check this model out as a used buy.
The LS is - and has always been - the car its brand is built upon. The day that Lexus can't bring us a credible large luxury saloon to challenge the best of the premium European makers will be a day the company will have taken its eye off the ball with too much of its focus on sports saloons, compact executive hatchbacks and SUVs. A drive in this improved fourth generation LS may well reassure you that that time is unlikely to ever come. While this isn't a class leader from its era, it's still a benchmark in so many ways, primarily when it comes to refinement and the sheer epitomisation of luxury in this segment.
Driving one of these is an experience, but one that few buyers browsing in the large luxury saloon used car segment will ever get to try. They'll dismiss this car for its lack of diesel power or an affordably priced hybrid engine. They'll bemoan the high-ish V8 running costs. Or assume that driving one will be like piloting a waterbed. Which is a pity because for all its faults, this enhanced MK4 model LS is a car that many top executives would really enjoy owning. True, it isn't an obvious choice. But then, that might be precisely why you'll like one so much.
