The Lexus LS 500h has always been one of our top picks as far as luxury sedans are concerned. For the Indian market, Lexus has brought the Nishijin variant that has intricate details which add to its luxurious appeal.
There’s a new paint option called Gin-ei Luster which basically gives the car a silver metallic finish and it reacts to even slight amounts of surrounding light, giving it a smooth, mirror-like texture without the granular touch. Even the front bumper on it is slightly modified now.
Inside, the interiors create a ‘moonlight on the sea’ effect that complements its new paint finish well. And finally, the LS gets a 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system that supports the latest phone mirroring protocols like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
As far as technical specifications are concerned, the LS 500h from its 3.5 litre V6 hybrid engine is capable of producing a total of 354 bhp and 30.59 kgm of torque. That’s enough power to luxuriously accelerate from 0 to 100 kph in 5.4 seconds and claiming to deliver 15.4 kpl of fuel economy. For such a luxuriously efficient package, one will have to shell out Rs 2.22 crore, ex-showroom, New Delhi.
