James Martin, an automobile reviewer for the Daily Mail, has an aversion to car technology, and was pretty sure he was going to despise the Lexus LS 600hL, but then something strange happened:
I’m not even into technology on cars. Four wheels and an engine is complex enough – after all these years, it still fascinates me how cars with all the same components can be so different to drive.
By contrast, when I get into a new car and have to get to grips with its “iDrive” or “Command” or “MMI” menu system, I’m not fascinated. I’m annoyed.
So guess what I’ve got on my driveway this week? Yep, it’s the most hi-tech car in the world. But the only annoying thing about the Lexus LS600hL is that I love it.
The review touches on what I would consider one of Lexus’ strongest points, no matter how complex the technology, they’re incredibly adept at making it easy to use, especially when compared to the competition. (Though I’m sure the opportunity to lounge in the backseat with a bottle of champagne and the telly didn’t hurt the review either.)
