Even though both the trims offer similar features as standard, it is advisable to opt for the base LS 460 trim with the rear-wheel-drivetrain for better performance of the engine. Additionally, it will be wise to opt for the optional Ultra Luxury Package for a more enhanced experience.

2015 Lexus LS 460 Engine and Performance

9.0/10

The 2015 Lexus LS 460 is offered with a 4.6L V8 engine that facilitates a power output of 386 hp and provides a torque of 367 lb-ft of torque. The engine of the car provides an adequate performance to its passengers even though it might not be the best in the segment. The quality of ride is agile, but the handling is not clear or precise making the journey unstable. 

The 2015 Lexus LS 460 comes with a rear-wheel-drive drivetrain that is mated to an 8-speed shiftable automatic transmission. The engine along with the transmission is intended for smooth acceleration. The acceleration of this Lexus is not at par with the expectations. In fact, it sprints from 0-60 MPH in 5.7 seconds and reaches its quarter-mile in 14.2 seconds. Most of its rivals offer better acceleration.

The data is indicative of the fact that all three models provide decent power, it is, however, the BMW 7 Series that takes home the tag for having the strongest engine in this segment in terms of power output and torque. Additionally, it is also the fastest car in this segment. The Audi A8 comes second in terms of power output and also in acceleration timings. The Lexus LS 460 comes last in terms of power output and torque and is also the slowest car in comparison.

Luxury sedans usually don’t fare well in the criterion of fuel efficiency and this statement holds true for the 2015 Lexus LS 460 too. The fuel economy performance of this Lexus LS 460 might not be abysmal, but it is neither praiseworthy. The 2015 Lexus LS 460 has a fuel capacity of 22.2 gallons and offers 16 MPG within city limits, 24 MPG on the highways, and combined mileage of 19 MPG.

When it comes to fuel efficiency, it is the Audi A8 that offers the maximum mileage and range, thereby proving to be the most fuel-efficient model in this segment. The BMW 7 Series comes second in terms of fuel efficiency, but it offers the least amount of fuel capacity. The Lexus LS 460 is the least fuel-efficient car in this segment but manages to offer a better range than BMW due to its bigger engine.

2015 Lexus LS 460 Interior

8.7/10

It is difficult to imagine luxury sedans without posh interiors. The 2015 Lexus LS 460 Sedan justifies the necessity for luxury sedans to have a well-structured and well-composed interior that dwells with the overall essence of the car. The interior of the Lexus LS 460 is nothing short of elegant and classy that includes a carefully designed cabin to maximize the space for its passengers without losing on its attractiveness. 

The cabin is further made with high-quality vinyl and soft padded surfaces that cover the entire area of the interior. It also includes leather upholstery. Additionally, the 2015 Lexus LS 460 can easily seat 5 passengers with maximum comfort and offers a cargo capacity of 18.0 cubic feet.

In this segment, the BMW 7 Series offers maximum space and comfort to its passengers. However, it loses out on points for offering the least cargo capacity. The Lexus LS 460 comes second in terms of spaciousness and comfort, and it also provides the maximum cargo capacity.

  • Interior Air Filtration

How intuitive are the infotainment features?

The infotainment system of the 2015 Lexus LS 460 includes a 12.3-inch touchscreen multimedia interface. Despite the infotainment system being intuitive and responsive most of the time, it has received some criticisms for including a few outdated features. Moreover, the infotainment system often lags behind in its operation and feels clunky to operate. Its functioning is definitely not the best in the class. Therefore, the infotainment system of this Lexus is one of its biggest drawbacks. The main infotainment features of the 2015 Lexus LS 460 include:

  • Satellite Radio
  • iPod Connectivity
  • USB Ports
  • CD Player
  • 10 Speaker Meridian Sound System
  • Navigation System 

2015 Lexus LS 460 Exterior

9.9/10

The exterior of the 2015 Lexus LS 460 has remained unchanged over the last few years, but this works in favor of the car. The exterior is classy and quite attractive in appearance. The lack of change in style gives it a timeless appeal. The present design includes a lot of sheer styling that makes the new Lexus distinguishable on the road. Moreover, it has been styled with a more pronounced spindle grille and panels in addition to proportionate fenders that make its shape even more profound and solid.
