This is the new 2021 LS 500 ($140,000 CAD 110,00 USD), and today it meets its older brother the 2009 LS460 (10,998 CAD, $8,600 USD). Both are large spacious luxury sedans, both have all-wheel drive and while the 460’s V8 pushes out 386 hp, the newer 500’s Twin-Turbo V6 has 416 hp to play with. Is the new LS 500 worth every penny?

  • I had the money to buy this Lexus but i chose not to because of the outdated old school interior, and absolutely MEH infotainment with no android auto and carplay in 2019.

  • Since Lexus revealed the new IS 500, imagine them putting the 5.0 V8 into the LS and calling it the LS F. A really great competitor to the Audi S8 and BMW M760Li.

  • The 2013 redesigned model is a much better bargain IMO, it already has the hourglass grille (spindle, wtev) and doesn't look like an oversized Camry. AND the infotainment system had finally caught up to the big boys. I've tried all LS models, I think people complained that the old LS 2000-2006's' suspension tune is waaay too soft, it literally rocks around like a boat on an up-down highway so, they stiffened up the normal suspension mode for this model but they haven't got it quite right yet. HOWEVER, they sure did in the newer 2013 model, it feels like the 2018 model, no doubt, despite having the same exact platform to 2006-2012(s).

  • Great comparison. But I couldn't help but to notice that the 2009 LS460 had a "Check Tire Pressure" warning on the dash. Do you think that low tire pressure on one or more tires could have affected your blind test results for ride and handling? We have a 2007 LS460 (Not AWD). It has more hp and TQ (380/367) than AWD version and is lighter. 0-60, 5.2 sec. It rides super smooth. We love this car and its super reliable.

  • I can confirm that LS460 is a great car. Had one few years back. Bought it from insurance money after crashing my infinini M. I had rear wheel drive and i had big time problem with burning the tires in it🤣 Worth every penny. My car had soft closing and weird system checking if you pay attention to the road. This parking system i didn't trust. Drive was so relaxing that when i whisper to my wife actual speed we had at the moment ,she needed to convert it to km/h and then started to panic as we were doing 266km/h effortlessly, no shaking tires noise was minimum engine didn't scream from pain. In the city it drinks but on motorway its absolutely reasonable. When filled up (100£) easily did trip from London to snowdonia and back. Biggest problem was with parking space and boot space. This is over 5m long car and very small boot. Probably due to electric back seats. Now i have Audi A8 from 2012 for few years full spec and ride quality was better in Lexus. I also had S class in the same time as LS and S class had nothing on LS. When i will change the car, im going back to lexus LS.

  • The statement that the Ls460 model is a facelift model is unfortunately wrong, it is the first model in this series built from 2007 - 2012. The first facelift of this model came in the 2nd half of 2012 and, in addition to new taillights, also included a completely redesigned cockpit and other details in the driver's cab ...!

And 19 inch wheels, you went for the most basic spec LS460 (which was still better equipped than basic S class which didn't have parking sensors or even backup camera as standard)

  • I can tell the difference between. A LS and a ES. But I hate how all luxury brands make their vehicles look the same. Like most of the designs are good looking but like I personally find the German brands very boring. Like the definition of a car in a dictionary. Lincoln and Cadillac are doing good in designs to me and hope they continue doing well. Lexus and Genesis are very striking cause there's nothing like them but while I personally dont find it ugly or boring I think sharing the same design across the lineup is annoying. I think Acura is attractive yet not on par with the competition. And is Infinity still on busniess??

It now has 94,000 miles on it and other then new tires, front pads and rotors, I've never spent more than $200 a year on maintenance. I have friends that own Audi, Porsche and Mercedes which cost at the very least $600 for the annual service. Compared to the other luxury cars, the cost of ownership cannot be beat. And with the 4.6 liter V8 and about 5,200 pounds of curb weight I still average 21 miles to the gallon in the city and 26 on the highway. I'd say it was and still is worth every penny I paid for it.
