New Lexus LS 500h Starts At £72,595 In The UK

The 2018 Lexus LS is ready to take on the BMW 7-Series, Mercedes-Benz S-Class, and Audi A8 in the United Kingdom, where it is available in four grades.

Priced from £72,595 ($97,067) is the base LS 500h, which may be basic on paper, but it’s loaded with equipment.

The list includes LED headlights, 20-inch wheels, 12.3-inch display, dual-zone climate control with air quality control, 360-degree camera system, and electrically adjustable front seats with ventilation and heating.

Upgrading to the LS 500h Luxury lands you a four-zone climate control, Mark Levinson sound system, semi-aniline leather, and even more settings for the electrically adjustable front seats, all from £79,995 ($106,961), whereas the AWD model carries a £2,600 ($3,476) premium.

Sitting above the Luxury is the F Sport, with numerous exterior additions, 3-spoke steering wheel and shift selector in perforated leather, smooth leather-wrapped seats, and several technical upgrades, which round up to a starting price of £79,995 ($106,961).

The range-topping trim is the LS 500h Premier AWD, which can be had from £97,995 ($131,029), and adds rear-seat entertainment system, heated rear seats with massage function and electric adjustment, and a suite of active safety and driver assistance system that comes with the Lexus Safety System+ A.

Customers can already make a deposit for the new Lexus LS in the UK, and should expect their car to arrive early next year.
