Lexus LS 500 Named to the 2018 WardsAuto Best Interiors List

Lexus LS Wards Auto Award

Lost in the excitement of last week’s ES debut, the Lexus LS was named to the 2018 WardsAuto Ten Best Interiors list:

Looking to gain some ground in the languishing fullsize luxury sedan segment, Lexus dresses the new LS in spectacular color combinations (including crimson in the F-Sport variant) and taps the creativity of its assembly craftsmen for hand-pleated door trim and cut-crystal trim that looks like Waterford’s finest. These two elements, alone, would have appeared only on a concept vehicle not long ago.

​WardsAuto editors recognize the LS for its “top-shelf stuff from headliner to floor,” knurled knobs, huge central screen and reconfigurable gauges and deem it “worth every penny,” even pushing $90,000.

This is the fourth time a Lexus has made the WardsAuto list, and the second straight year — the LC was honored as a 2017 selection. This year’s competition saw 40 nominated interiors that were all-new or significantly improved from the prior year.
