The Lexus LS has always intrigued me. I credit the original LS 400 for starting my interest in cars, and it certainly shook up the luxury landscape back in the 1980s, but the last few generations of LS have honestly felt a little behind the times. Lexus is trying to change that with a new LS which give us the brand’s first twin-turbo V6, seats that move in more ways than Shakira’s hips and the most aggressive version of the spindle grille design. But like the LS sedans that came before, Lexus is still trying to chart a course between the “value” options like the G90 and the opulent price tag on the Mercedes S-Class. Does that leave the LS 500 in the sweet spot or stuck in the middle?
