Lexus’ flagship LS sedan will deliver an even more refined experience than ever before with its updated 2023 range, which compliments supremely smooth driving performance with seamless access to information, communication and entertainment via the latest connectivity technology.
The most up-to-date and fastest Lexus Link Multimedia system transforms the LS range. It allows occupants to smoothly interact with the system through the in-car touchscreen display, voice commands or remotely via a smartphone with new wireless Apple CarPlay integration, alongside wired Android Auto.
New Lexus Link Pro as standard brings a more sophisticated, human-centred multimedia experience thanks to its 12.3-inch touchscreen display and “Hey Lexus” on-board assistant, which responds smartly to voice commands to search the internet, make calls and operate the audio or climate control.
Greater functionality and connectivity are not limited to the in-car environment with the 2023 LS range; convenient remote access enhances the user experience from afar. Over-the-air updates deliver the latest multimedia software, while Lexus Link allows remote windscreen defrosting and control of door locks and hazard lights through a smartphone app. Additionally, LS 500h owners can adjust cabin temperature and steering wheel heating remotely. The app also provides driving analytics, warning light information and advice on hybrid car driving techniques, as well as a “find my car” search function.
Stress-free driving with minimal delays comes courtesy of a powerful navigation solution which combines cloud-based up-to-the-moment traffic, road and parking information from the new Premium Connectivity service and an embedded, “always connected” navigation system.
Drivers can manoeuvre with renewed confidence and comfort using the new under-floor see-through view on the Digital Panoramic View Monitor, which displays conditions under the car, as well as tyre positions. Adding to the already wide range of convenience and safety solutions of the Lexus Safety System +, the Parking Assist Monitor aids spatial awareness during reversing by projecting the vehicle centre line.
These features are serviced by new switches on an updated centre console. The new multimedia system facilitates the discontinuation of the Remote Touch Interface, so switch locations are optimised to aid usability and achieve cleaner surfaces, while the centre console shape is refined to allow easy smartphone storage, without needing to open or close a lid.
Customers will experience for themselves the more refined, more connected Lexus LS when the first deliveries of the 2023 Model Year LS range begin in December 2022.
