Lexus introduced in San Francisco, USA, the fifth generation LS sedan, a rival for BMW 7 Series, Mercedes-Benz S-Class and Audi A8. The new Lexus LS comes in first and a sports version (LS F Sport) and will be available for order later this year, including the European market. LS is the flagship of the Japanese brand Lexus, Toyota founded in 1989.
The new LS has four versions: LS 460, LS 460L, LS and LS 600hL F Sport. Models LS 460 and 460L (long wheelbase) can be rear-wheel drive or 4 × 4 and the other models come only with rear-wheel drive.

Regarding safety, the new Lexus LS comes with APCS (automatic braking to avoid imminent accidents): at speeds up to 40 km / h, system can stop 100% complete and avoid a possible impact with pedestrians or other cars in front. The new LS is available with adaptive cruise control (ACC), which maintains a constant distance from the car in front and a revised LKA (leaving preventing unintentional lane).
Two other important systems are BSM road safety (monitoring blind spots) and AHB (automatic switching from high beam to low beam when the car appear in front - the same for opposite direction of travel.
It features a 12.3 inch screen multimedia system.
