The alternative German luxury car still isn’t a strong choice – but F-Sport gets close
Ride and handling
You'll be hard pressed to notice much difference with the standard car over the old one. It has a nicely supple roll along feel thanks to soft air suspension and relaxed settings: five-setting suspension adjustment can be dialled in to reduce this but not fully eliminate it. Very much a cruiser.
Lexus says it's fundamentally changed the setup of the variable suspension but only back-to-back drives will reveal the benefits. Until, that is, you sample the F-Sport. Here is the LS that validates Lexus' talk of greater driver focus promises.
