2013 Lexus LS 460
The outlook: On the outside the 2013 LS appears to be a simple mid-cycle styling refresh. Settle into the driver's seat and you'll see that the automaker's flagship model has undergone a complete transformation with over 3,000 new parts, new interior styling, and a revamped suite of cabin tech and performance tech options.
The good: The Lexus LS 460 comes with a high level of standard cabin tech, which is augmented by the F-Sport package's driver aid, premium audio, and performance tech upgrades.
The bad: The Remote Touch controller and the split-screen interface don't seem to work well together. Even in its Sport+ mode, the LS largely isolated the driver from the road and vehicle feedback.
The bottom line: The 2013 Lexus LS 460 F-Sport's performance upgrades don't transform it into a sports car, but add a sporty edge to the luxury sedan's already good cabin and comfort tech offerings.
