The Lexus LS 600h is known for being one of the most high-priced hybrid machines in the market. Priced at around $119,910, which seems to be quite hefty compared to its other siblings, this one from Toyota doesn’t really disappoint. Talking about the power, the LS 600h doesn’t fall back; with its 5.0 liter V8 engine type making 389 hp, it is quite impressive. Not only that, it gets 19 mpg in the city and 23 mpg on the highway, which by no means is even close to ordinary. If you look at the list of luxury sedans, it will be an extremely grueling campaign to find one with the same class, caliber and performance as that of the Lexus LS 600h. Although branded as being closely related to LS 460h, the makers of the vehicle have made some technological changes to extract the maximum out of it.

Review

As mentioned in the introduction, this car comes with a 5.0 liter V8 engine making the grand total of the horsepower 439bhp with 6400 rpm and a desirable 384 lb-ft of torque. That sounds great for a 5.4 second 0 to 60 mph. It gets extra power from a couple of electric motors and a rechargeable battery. Coming to the capacity, the fuel tank comes with a capacity of 22.2 gallon. The grip is quite telling and the brakes don't give a feeling of saccade at all. Thanks to the electronic brake distribution. It also comes with an electronic traction control and a variable automatic transmission.

Interior

On the inside, the Lexus LS 600h renders you just what you expect from it. The comfort of the car is almost unquestionable, as it's regarded as one of the best luxury cars in the market. The standard features are voice navigation system, rear climate control and rear audio control system, rear seat center armrest, speed proportional steering, rear reading lights and an awesome leather upholstery. All in all, the interior of this wonderful sedan makes you feel special inside. But the question is whether only feeling special is enough. Yes, we ought to know about the safety factor. The electronic stability system, the pre-collision system and the airbags come for the defense of the safety of the Ls 600h.

Exterior

People say that the LS 600h looks insipid. The fact is that it is quite attractive. But just when you park it next to an S400 Hybrid, it looks a bit hefty and bland. The intelligent headlamps automatically shifts from regular to high beam and vice-versa, when it detects the vehicle on the opposite side. The special features of the car are alloy wheels measuring 19 inches, power moon-roof, power trunk lid and front air dam. The power liftgate, the electric glass sunroof and high pressure headlight cleaners are some other features that add value to the exterior of the Lexus LS 600h.
