The new fifth-generation Lexus LS, which launches in fall 2017 in some markets and replaces a car introduced in Japan way back in 2006, continues the previous model’s tradition of a smooth ride with exceptional quietness and comfort. However, the new GA-L platform on which it is based is said to place more emphasis on driving thrills, and the car’s bold new styling envelopes some advanced new technologies. They include an all-new twin-turbo V6 with 415 hp (309 kW), ten-speed automatic transmission, and an all-new available Lexus advanced safety system.
It is with that last element the engineers of the new Lexus LS expect will provide world-leading safety performance. The advanced safety system is in essence two systems that combine a redesigned Lexus Safety System + and the new Lexus Safety System +A. In a sneak peek for media on June 26th, Lexus previewed the features of these systems.
