The latest generation of Lexus' flagship sedan, the LS 500h, has landed on our shores. Priced between Rs 1.77 and 1.94 crore (ex-showroom), this 5.2 meter long luxury limousine goes up against Mercedes-Maybach S560. But the LS has a distinctly Japanese take on design, craftsmanship, luxury and comfort, that sets it apart from its German competition.

While the international market also gets it with a V6 twin-turbo motor, India only gets the hybrid version, which uses a 3.5-litre naturally aspirated petrol motor along with an electric motor to drive the rear wheels. It's geek quotient is upped with an incredibly high-tech multi-stage gearbox that combines a CVT with a regular automatic transmission that has a total of 10-speeds.

      For maybach money? You realize a fully loaded LS500 I spec’d is $115k and a Maybach S560 starts at $180k.

      Your Title Is Misleading! It Should Read Maybach Luxury For Japanese Car Money!!! 1. The Maybach Isn't As Reliable As A Lexus, 2. Upkeep/Maintenance Is Super Expensive And Will Require Much More, 3. Just Because Something Looks Good To You, Doesn't Mean Its Good For You! I'll Take The Lexus Over Any Mercedes Built Products! Just Because Its German Engineered And Built, Doesn't Mean That It Will Have Long Term Quality, Reliability, And Trouble Free Drivability & Ownership. If That's What You're Looking For, Buy A Lexus! They're The Only Luxury Sedan Who Can Claim That Title!

      This car looks so much better than the SUV's fron Lexus. Superb car this LS and also LC.

      However, the new ES (2019) looks already very outdated and way behind competition from Audi, Mercedes and BMW/Volvo, so it is not clear what the productstrategy is behind the ES. Lexus should have come up with a replacement for the dull looking but excellent GS. Shame that Lexus will not come with a successor for the GS....... .

      Toyota / Lexus must become far more agressive in its product strategy and PR/Marketing otherwise it will lose the game. Excellent cars are not enough these days..... .

      Anyone here care to comment on why Lexus aren't prepared to assemble a highly complex car like this anywhere else in the world except in their highly refined production factories in Japan ?

      Huy Thai How does that not mean anything? What you said was almost exactly the same as what I was trying to explain to him. First of all, I was trying to say that India is the *ONLY* country where the car is overpriced. This LS is a bargain everywhere else in the world. Am I not correct? You stated the obvious making that reply.

      Master Yoda I’m sorry to burst your bubble. But as much as I agree with you that this shits over the Germans, it’s the Lexus that’s overpriced. Lexus of India wants you to pay extra for the import taxes, considering how the car is manufactured in Japan.
