Lexus LS500h - Maybach;Road Test Review

The latest generation of Lexus' flagship sedan, the LS 500h, has landed on our shores. Priced between Rs 1.77 and 1.94 crore (ex-showroom), this 5.2 meter long luxury limousine goes up against Mercedes-Maybach S560. But the LS has a distinctly Japanese take on design, craftsmanship, luxury and comfort, that sets it apart from its German competition. While the international market also gets it with a V6 twin-turbo motor, India only gets the hybrid version, which uses a 3.5-litre naturally aspirated petrol motor along with an electric motor to drive the rear wheels. It's geek quotient is upped with an incredibly high-tech multi-stage gearbox that combines a CVT with a regular automatic transmission that has a total of 10-speeds.
