Lexus Malaysia Begins Order Taking for 2018 LS
Lexus Malaysia has announced that all authorised Lexus centres across Malaysia is now accepting orders for its newest flagship luxury sedan, the 2018 Lexus LS.
Having made its debut at the 2017 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit, the new LS features Lexus’ first-ever twin-turbocharged 3.5-litre V6 engine that delivers 415 hp coupled with a 10-speed automatic transmission and an intuitive, predictive steering system.
It also boasts a finesse design language that pays tribute to the brand’s intricate Japanese craftsmanship. From the outside, Lexus’ new sedan sports a new silhouette, which has the appearance and appeal of a four-door coupe but maintains the roominess of a traditional three-box design.
Its interior is meticulously crafted to feature Kiriko cut glass and a hand pleated door trim – both of which transform according to lighting conditions, creating a one of a kind space that epitomises luxury and elegance.
As far as safety is concerned, the luxury sedan is equipped with the Lexus Safety System – featuring the Pre Collision System that helps to warn the driver on the possibility of a collision so they may perform an invasive manoeuvre; and the advanced Lane Departure Alert that is capable of detecting boundaries through improved recognition capability to offer continued performance on roads.
Proudly designed and manufactured at the brand’s Tahara plant, the LS is already a big hit in Japan with pre-orders for the new flagship sedan reaching 9,500 units, or nearly 1,600% higher than the sales goal of 600 units a month.
The LS comes with a comprehensive warranty of five years covering unlimited mileage. Complete aftersales support is available at seven locations around Malaysia where professional technicians with extensive training by Lexus are ready to serve.
The 2018 Lexus LS will be fully imported from Japan and will be offered in three variants:
|The 2018 Lexus LS||Peninsular Malaysia||Sabah||Sarawak|
|LS Executive (Hybrid)||RM1,459,000||RM1,460,132.00||RM1,460,132.00|
