Vehicle Overview
Lexus’ flagship LS 460 full-size sedan is available in standard form and as a limousinelike long-wheelbase LS 460 L model that stretches nearly 203 inches from bumper to bumper — 5 inches more than the standard model. Both sizes are available with rear- or all-wheel drive. Competitors include the BMW 7 Series and Mercedes-Benz S-Class. An optional Advanced Parking Guidance System lets the car park itself and is the car’s most intriguing feature.

A hybrid version of the LS 460 L sedan, dubbed LS 600h L, is covered separately in the Cars.com Research section.

New for 2011
For 2011, Lexus adds a standard brake override system. A coil suspension is now standard, and an air suspension is available on all-wheel-drive models.

Exterior
The side mirrors have integrated turn signals, and the standard 18-inch wheels have a 10-spoke design. Exterior features include:

* Xenon high-intensity-discharge headlights
* Available 19-inch wheels

Interior
In the long-wheelbase variant, Lexus aims to replicate the environment of a business jet with optional massaging, 45-degree-reclining rear seats that include an ottoman for leg support. Interior features include:

* Standard power moonroof
* Available voice-activated navigation system; standard in LS 460 L
* Available 19-speaker Mark Levinson stereo with 8GB hard drive

Under the Hood
The 4.6-liter engine uses direct fuel injection along with traditional port fuel injection. Mechanical features include:

* Rear- or all-wheel drive
* Direct injection
* Electronic power steering

Safety
The optional Advanced Pre-Collision System, which helps detect pedestrians and applies the brakes, is available with a camera that monitors the orientation of the driver’s face. It can activate warnings or apply the brakes if the driver isn’t looking ahead for more than a few seconds. Other safety features include:

* Electronically controlled antilock brakes with brake assist and electronic brake-force distribution
* Electronic stability system
* Side-impact airbags for the front seats
* Side curtain airbags
