(3 Stars)  It's good—but everything else got better

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

Overview
The Lexus LS 460 is the company's largest sedan. This competes with the top end luxury cars of Germanys top car makers. In this ultra competitive class of vehicles, excellent styling, posh interiors, and powerful engines are required for consideration. The LS series has all of these. Add to this that Lexus has always been the brand to beat on cabin quietness and the LS continues this trend.

The LS carved out a portion of this segment for itself. This starts with the fact the materials used in the car are of the highest quality. It trades some athleticism comfort and offers class leading value. For that Value you get some top tier standard features, such as a 10 speaker stereo, a 16 way adjustable driver's seat, and heated steering wheel.
