Comfort & Design


    A 23-speaker system that includes speakers in the ceiling ensures unprecedented sonic quality in an accurate and enveloping soundstage.


    The sequential LED rear turn signal is a powerful combination of 21 LEDs, and 16 LEDs for the front, that emit a brilliant glow, yet artfully conceal their presence when turned off.


    The front seats feature a shiatsu massage function with heating and ventilation to deliver a soothing and refreshing environment.


    A Lexus-first air suspension system automatically raises the vehicle for passengers to enter and exit with comfort and ease. 


    A sensor underneath the rear bumper allows you to effortlessly open and close the boot lid with a simple sweep of your foot.


    View the status of your navigation system, or check on fuel economy and the air-conditioning all on one fully customisable, 12.3-inch display.


  • Cargo Net

    Stowing cargo items has never been easier thanks to the innovative Lexus Genuine Cargo Net with integrated storage pouch. Specifically designed for the cargo area, this durable elastic-mesh net has an envelope-style design that holds items upright and in place. After attaching the storage pouch to the lower mounting points in the cargo area, simply unzip the pouch, attach the cargo net upper mounting hooks and the net is ready to hold your groceries, sports equipment or other cargo. When not in use, the cargo net stores flat by tucking neatly back into the storage pouch.

  • Side Steps

    Add some personalised style to your vehicle with the integrated Lexus Genuine Side Steps. These side steps not only compliment the design of your vehicle, but give you that extra convenience when simply getting in and out of your vehicle.

  • Tow Bar

    The Lexus Genuine Tow Bar is designed specifically for each model, engineered and thoroughly tested to integrate with the vehicle body to ensure pulling and braking forces that occur during towing are evenly distributed.



    Under the hood of the LS 500 is a 3.5-litre twin turbo V6 engine, the first ever in the LS series. The compact engine achieves high driving performance as well as reduced fuel consumption. 


    Artificial Intelligence Shift uses information from the G sensor to understand when to introduce downshift when braking, and how many gears to drop down.


    Select performance to match your driving style with six drive modes: Normal, Eco, Comfort, Sport S, Sport S+, and Custom.


    AVS continually adjusts shock-absorber damping rates while driving, delivering the type of smooth ride expected of a Lexus.


    Seamless acceleration and rhythmical gear shifts are achieved with a new Direct Shift 10-speed automatic transmission.



    PCS is a collection of intelligent warning sensors placed at the front of the car that alert you and help to avoid potential accidents.


    Know when vehicles are approaching from behind, even at higher speeds, with the next-generation Blind Spot Monitor.


    When you drift into another lane without a turn signal, the LDA system alerts you and applies steering force to assist in avoiding lane departure.


    The All-speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control helps your Lexus maintain a safe distance from the vehicle in front of you.


    The high beam lights are turned on only when other vehicles are not detected to enhance nighttime visibility without blinding other drivers.


    Front Cross Traffic Alert (FCTA) uses radar sensors at the front of the vehicle to detect on-coming traffic that may cross your vehicle's path at an intersection. When approaching traffic is detected, FCTA alerts the driver with visual alerts indicating which side the traffic is detected. If the driver starts to drive forward even though there is crossing traffic ahead, FCTA sounds a warning buzzer in addition to the visual alerts.
