JapanLexus LS: Fifth Generation

2020 Lexus LS Flagship Gets Minor Update

Lexus LS 2020 Improvements

The fifth-generation Lexus LS sedan is getting a minor update, according to a press release out of Japan.

First off, the rear-wheel drive LS will adopt the same shock absorbers as the all-wheel drive version, expanding the variable damping force range and reducing friction. Along with adjustments to the run-flat tires and the AVS tuning, the LS should see improved ride quality and quietness.

For LS models with the Executive rear seat package, rear foot space has been increased and the infotainment controls have been revised. Lastly, the hybrid LS 500h will see more battery assistance during acceleration.

Good changes, they definitely have heard what people don't like about the car.
I feel sad though because I just bought my 2019 model. They must hear the continuous negative reviews about their infotainment system which is the worst in my opinion and put it the very top priority. But this is a good indication that they are listening at least..

I honestly don't think the infotainment is as bad as people complain about. The major pain point is the touchpad. I feel that if it was a touchscreen the current software would be fine bordering on great.
