What we dislike:
Car can come across as costly

The new LS also sees a departure from its traditional and upright sedan styling and in-place, Lexus has fielded a car with a coupe-line silhouette. We certainly love how the shoulder crease in the bodywork disappears into the rear faired wheel arch and re-appears again to fold over the rear tail lights. In helping to keep wind noise down, the side windows, as a first for the brand close flush with the side pillar.

Up in-front, the new spindle grille, which was first seen on the LC Coupe, complements the car’s wide and aggressive stance. Flanking the grille are some radically designed L-shaped LED headlamps, with daytime running lights.

At the rear, the L-Finesse influence appears in the tail lights, with their chrome accents. While the LS does feature twin tailpipes, they also do get decorative bumper-mounted chrome covers.

Our Thoughts

The development of the LS is a refreshing move for Lexus. With the braking away from the traditional sedan styling, Lexus has taken quite the risk in the attempt to attract the younger buyer.

Some may lament the loss of that silky-smooth V8 engine, and honestly we do too, but with less weight in-front, the new LS comes across as a car that is extremely nimble; while its refinement, creature spoils, and emphasis on safety easily puts it right up there with the big Germans.

The transaction was very smooth from the minute I get on to their website trying to sell my car till the car ownership transferred and have the money paid by Pay Now into my account. It only takes less than 3 days. The person attending to me are very professional, Jon at the phone in their office and Sean Tan who came down to view and test the car. I am very happy to have decided to sell my car through "One Shift By Carousell"
