Automobile 5s: 2018 Lexus LS: Australian details
Some key details about the local version of fifth-generation Lexus LS were revealed at the car’s international launch this week.
The new LS will arrive in Australian showrooms from April 2018 with two drivetrain options: the LS500 with a new 3.5-litre twin-turbo V6, and the LS500h with the same Multi-Stage Hybrid setup we first saw in the LC coupe.
The LS350 and its naturally aspirated 3.5-litre V6 is currently reserved for “price sensitive” markets, and won’t be available in Australia.
This latest LS will be the first to launch without a V8 engine. The LS500’s 3.5-litre V6 twin-turbo drives the rear wheels via a 10-speed auto, and its 310kW/600Nm easily outpoints the outgoing 285kW/493Nm 4.6-litre V8.
Confusingly the LS500h has a total system output of 264kW from its Atkinson-cycle 3.5-litre V6 and electric motor. By combining Lexus’s two motor generators and power splitting device with a four-speed automatic, the hybrid steps its way through 10 gears.
In Australia, the two LS drivetrains will offered in both Sports Luxury and F Sport trim. The Sports Luxury will be available with four different interior colour choices, and six choices of ornamentation, including the option of Kiriko cut glass elements and hand pleated leather trim for the doors.
For F Sport buyers there will only be three cabin colours to choose from, while the only ornamentation available will be aluminium inlays.
While other markets will receive a 12-speaker Pioneer sound system, the upscale 23-speaker, 16-channel, 2400W Mark Levinson unit will be standard fit on all Australia-bound models. This is hooked up to the latest Remote Touch infotainment system with a 12.3-inch screen and a haptic feedback trackpad.
