The LS delivers peerless safety performance, day and night, thanks to breakthrough technologies like Advanced Pre-Crash Safety (A-PCS). Available for the first time on a Lexus, our latest A-PCS is the most advanced system in the industry today and can even detect errant pedestrians. Driver Monitoring is fitted too and will warn you if you are becoming tired, while Lane Keeping Assist stops you drifting out of lane. Blind Spot Monitor uses radar to warn you of unnoticed vehicles when changing lanes, and Rear Pre-Crash activates headrests to reduce whiplash in a back end collision. For safer driving in the dark, Lexus Night View displays infrared images of the road ahead on the 12.3-inch screen. Finally, Adaptive High Beam System (AHS) – a Lexus first – activates shutters within the headlamps to partially shield illumination that may dazzle oncoming drivers.
Eight airbags (10 airbags with the rear seat upgrade package) and seatbelt pre-tensioners help to protect the people inside the car and our Advanced Pre-Crash Safety system is there not only to warn of potential hazards, but to aid with evasive action too, if necessary.
