Lexus LS 600hL Named the Quietest Car in Britain

Lexus LS 600hL

The Lexus LS 600hL has been named the quietest car in Britain — according to a Which? Car study, the interior noise in an LS hybrid is just 63.3 decibels, the same volume as the average conversation.

(The LS tied with the Mercedes S350 CDI, and was the only non-German vehicle on the list.)

    In my experience, the new model is much quieter.

    Have you driven the ES. I remember Lexus made a statement that the ES will be the most quiet Lexus ever made

    I have driven the new ES, and would ballpark the ES & LS being comparable in NVH -- I do think the LS, especially the LS 600hL, is the quieter of the two.

Now run these cars 50,000 miles and then test them.  LS win going away!

It should also be said that what little noise you do hear in an LS is very pleasant.

    Lexus has both the quietest car as well as the best sounding car in their lineup: the two flagships LS and LFA.
