Lexus once more proved to the market why the brand is one of the best. The Lexus LS 460L was cited by Consumer Report as one of the best for 2008. To put the feat of this Lexus model in proper perspective, this Lexus LS 460L is the highest scoring vehicle that has been tested by CR. In fact, this Lexus model garnered 99 points out of the possible 100! Now this is one vehicle is a league in itself owing to the rave reviews that it got from the reviewers of Consumer Reports. The Lexus LS 460L ruled over all the other pretenders on the luxury vehicle segment.
It provides a no-compromise environment of comfort and roominess, coupled with an isolating quiteness. It also delivers quick acceleration and relatively good fuel economy, adds Consumer Reports.
This model was redesigned by the Lexus brand in 2007 is actually the flagship line of Lexus. The newly designed Lexus 460L of 2007 come with a much bigger engine, more gears and more technology in the cabin. The automatic transmission of the Lexus 460L features eight gears to shift. And more importantly this model coming from Lexus is the first car in North America to feature Toyota’s self-parking technology, released in the Prius (another award-winner in the Toyota fold) for Europe and Japan. A discussion of what this self-parking technology is all about will soon follow in my next blog entry. Now back to the features of this Lexus ace, this highly styled and luxurious model do come in two basic styles, there is the standard and the long-wheel base 460L version. These two versions are fully loaded with standards and options and for a comprehensive listing of options, go check it here.
The LS 460 can also travel from zero to sixty miles per hour in less than 5.5 seconds. Overall, the Lexus LS 460 is built on a sophisticated platform that can maintain a delicate balance between ride comfort and responsive handling.
