Luxury/Comfort/Convenience

Already lauded for its comprehensive luxury, the Lexus LS 460 gains numerous additional user-tech amenities for 2010. The driver's seat now features a standard slide-away feature that makes ingress/egress more comfortable; a new multi-information display uses a large center console LCD screen; the available navigation system employs voice command casual-language based voice recognition; Bluetooth phonebook download capability (with available navigation system), and new music playing capability with Bluetooth audio streaming and USB/iPod connectivity. In addition to the auxiliary jack located in the front center console a USB jack connects an iPod or MP3-capable digital music player. The iPod can be controlled through the steering wheel audio controls or headunit.

The 2010 Lexus LS models continue a tradition of offering a comprehensive roster of true-luxury standard features. Customers can choose from four leather and wood-trimmed interior combinations. Pampering begins with a 16-way power driver's seat and 12-way power front passenger seat, dual zone automatic climate control with smog sensor, and a power tilt/slide moonroof.

Controls in the Lexus LS 460 models provide the utmost convenience; including SmartAccess with pushbutton start/stop, and a power tilt/telescoping steering wheel with audio, brake hold and multi-information display controls. An automatic electric parking brake system eliminates the need to press a foot-operated pedal.
