Lexus Showcases the LS 600h L at the Geneva Motor Show This Week
|   Thursday, March 21, 2013
The Lexus LS took over 450 prototypes over a period of six years to develop and this makes it a precious vehicle for Lexus. The latest offering from Lexus – the LS 600h L – is here and although better standard is expected off Lexus, this vehicle managed to take the people at Geneva Motor Show by surprise. Lexus plans on making this vehicle available to the American market initially and the car has been designed keeping in mind the American customers and situations.


This is the fourth generation LS from Lexus and the vehicle has been face lifted. This makes it more viable in the market and could turn out to be the flagship vehicle from Toyota at the moment. The LS 600h L has a very distinct level of finesse attached to its name and the vehicle does not disappoint.

The styling cues have been borrowed from different models from Lexus and the headlamps have been slightly updated along with additional body panels and overhangs. However, the star of the show is the latest four zone climate control system added to the vehicle. Expected to be priced at £99,495, the LS 600h L Premier features standard LED attachments up front which enhance the overall visual appeal of the vehicle.

The vehicle features a considerably long wheel base and this provides optimum boot space. Interior space is considerably high and this makes the cabin quite a cozy yet comfortable place to be in. The LS 600h L is powered by a 5.0 liter V8 engine displacing 389 BHP, along with an electric motor producing 221 BHP. This petrol electric hybrid drive train works well for the LS 600 h L and Lexus hopes to attain high fuel efficiency from this engine.

Road tests have revealed that this vehicle is capable of reaching 0 – 60 MPH in 6.1 seconds and that makes it quite fast considering the sedan body structure. The engine is mated to an E CVT transmission system which further enhances general performance of the vehicle. The suspension has been tweaked and this gives better grip and maneuverability. The LS 600h L is quite entertaining to drive and provides a great overall experience.

It could be used as a chauffeur driven car or could be driven by the owner. The driver's seat is the place to be at as it is comfortable as well as engages a person completely. Neck straining will not be a serious problem for the person at the driver's wheel and this makes the overall journey quite comfortable.

This car could be used efficiently for cruising purposes and the revised power to weight ratio as well as the gear ratio means that it is a pleasure to be seated at the driver's as well as the passenger's seat. Lexus has managed to get things perfectly right with the LS 600h L. The Japanese car manufacturers have designed impractical vehicles in the past and the LS 600h L will surely not join the club.
