2015 Lexus LS 600h L Review
The classic beige and black interiors are used in this car to give it a sense of luxury sport sedan. The dashboard is designed keeping in mind that this is the flagship model and extensive use of wood is done on many places like door panels, steering wheel, central console etc. Adding wood trims always make the car feel more luxurious and upmarket. Apart from that aluminum is used for all the buttons and switches which suit the black interior very well. The central console houses the large 12 inch display which shows all the required information such as maps and entertainment module.
Being a luxury sedan, there is a lot of space for both rows. The leg space at the rear is immense, especially in the longer wheelbase model. The leather seats are very comfortable and provide sufficient lumbar support. The main attractions of this car are its seats.
