Driven: 2013 Lexus LS, the Flagship That Fails to Excite

By Trevor Dorchies | August 20, 2012
If you’re familiar enough with by now, you’re aware of how many vehicles we drive and test out on a daily basis. Recently, fellow associate editor Jason Davis had a chance to drive the 2013 Lexus LS, a full-size luxury sedan that also doubles as the brand’s flagship vehicle. So, what did he think of it? "The LS is a fantastically luxurious flagship...that fails to excite," said Davis. "The 2013 Lexus LS wears the same modern-inspired, horizontal interior theme as the recently launched GS and ES. And yes, it's a commanding, heavy-handed, technology-loaded, in-your-face statement that is somehow decluttered and clean." Davis had a chance to drive the 2013 Lexus LS 460, 600h, and the 460 F-Sport, and as he points out in his review, each represents the third major relaunch for Lexus recently.
