Lexus Malaysia is now accepting orders for its newest flagship luxury sedan, the 2018 LS. The long-awaited fifth-generation LS promises to reinvent the brand’s take on luxury and is a significant step up from its predecessor in terms of platform and powertrain, as well as styling and craftsmanship.
The new LS features Lexus’ first-ever twin-turbocharged 3.5l V6 engine, which delivers 415hp coupled with a 10-speed automatic transmission and an intuitive, predictive steering system – promising pure power, precise handling and excellent efficiency. The new LS also boasts a design language that pays tribute to the brand’s intricate Japanese craftsmanship. From the outside, it sports a ‘new silhouette’, which has the appearance and appeal of a four-door coupe but maintains the roominess of a traditional 3-Box design. Its interior is meticulously crafted to feature Kiriko cut glass and a hand pleated door trim – both of which transform according to lighting conditions, creating a one of a kind space that epitomises luxury and elegance.
Three variants of the new LS will be available in Malaysia – the LS Luxury, LS Executive and LS Executive Hybrid – and is scheduled to arrive in the first quarter of 2018.
