The exterior design remains identical to the previous model, and remains one of the least aggressive exterior designs in Lexus’ current range. The only updates made to the exterior are body adhesive added to additional areas for improved body rigidity, and the option of run-flat summer tires for the conventional petrol models.

Inside, the new Lexus LS gets an upgraded infotainment system with full-screen navigation, a Remote Touch Interface with enter and back buttons, and optional Lexus Enform Service Connect.
