Global debut of new Lexus LS flagship at Detroit motor show

The fifth-generation Lexus LS flagship saloon will make its world debut at the 2017 North American International Auto Show in Detroit in January.

The introduction of the original LS 400 at the same event in 1989 made automotive history, making its mark as a car that offered premium vehicle luxury, performance and quietness and also heralding the birth of the new Lexus brand.

Twenty-eight years later, the all-new Lexus LS saloon (teased in the above image) will offer a bold new look, presenting a coupe-like silhouette without compromising interior spaciousness. It will feature visionary technology and will be built on an extended version of Lexus’s new global architecture for luxury vehicles (GA-L) rear-wheel drive platform. Shared with the forthcoming LC luxury coupe, this will help the new LS deliver a more dynamic driving experience.

The 2017 North American International Auto Show runs from 8-22 January.
