After 3 years of career, the 5th generation Lexus LS is getting a mid-career restyling. Aesthetic and technological evolutions are on the program while the petrol version disappears.

Launched three years ago on the French market, the fifth-generation Lexus LS now gets a mid-career restyling.
Aesthetic evolutions concern the trapezoidal grille, which now has a darker finish, and the redesigned headlamps and bumpers. Meanwhile, the taillights have darker chrome inserts.

Inside, the dashboard benefits from a new “Piano Black” finish and the multimedia system gains a new 12.3-inch touch screen compatible with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Lexus promises more comfortable seating. The Japanese automaker also announces that it has optimized onboard silence and suspension.Lexus LC 500

An automatic parking system with memory

The LS also advances in technology, becoming the first vehicle in its segment to offer an automatic parking system with memory (“Advanced Park”) that makes it easier to park in frequently used spaces (available in the premium 4WD Executive Innovation version).

Finally, one of the main new features of this restyling concerns the engine lineup, since the sedan is no longer offered in a gasoline version. The LS 500’s 421-hp 3.5L twin-turbo V6 is no longer available. Only the LS 500h‘s hybrid engine is still available. It still combines a 3.5L V6 gasoline engine with two electric motors for a combined output of 359 hp. The 0 to 100 km/h is thus announced in 5.4 seconds and top speed at 250 km/h.

Prices for the restyled Lexus LS 500h start at $121,861. The first deliveries will take place in March 2021.
