It’s not just because we’re Lexus dealers near St. Augustine, FL that we get excited when the Lexus brand introduces a new vehicle. We get excited because we admire the innovation, styling, and forward thinking that the Lexus brand consistently demonstrates whenever it unveils an all-new automobile. And the 2018 Lexus LS 500h embodies everything we admire about the brand we represent.
Earlier this month, the Lexus brand unveiled the hybrid version of its flagship sedan at the Geneva Motor Show. The debut of the all-new Lexus LS 500h follows the automaker’s world premiere of the twin-turbo, V6-powered 2018 Lexus LS 500 at Detroit’s North American International Auto Show in January, 2017.
The 2018 Lexus LS 500h combines the virtues of a four-door sedan with a coupe-like look, which positions the automobile across both the sedan and coupe classes nicely. The hybrid’s cabin focuses on “progressive comfort,” which blends Japanese aesthetics and craftsmanship with the luxuriousness and innovation that have long been associated with the Lexus brand.
The new Lexus LS 500 is designed to exceed what people expect from a luxury vehicle. “Developing such a flagship model required a massive paradigm shift. Rather than being bound by the conventions that had defined luxury cars in the past, we aimed to create a car with innovative, emotional, and sensual appeal that would draw customers’ eyes away from other luxury cars and provide entirely new values,” explained Lexus Chief Engineer Toshio Asahi.
The hybrid’s luxurious interior embodies “omotenashi,” which is the expression of Japanese hospitality. With several power adjustments and multiple heating, cooling, and massage functions, the car’s front and rear seats are the definition of comfort. The all-new Lexus LS 500h has an optional rear seat setup that includes a leg ottoman and the most leg room of any Lexus LS ever.
