Lexus' full-size sedans are known for their smooth ride and luxurious cabins. Now the sport package livens up the otherwise stodgy LS460 for those who want a little pizzazz along with comfort.
Appearance: The exterior gets a subtle facelift with a more aggressive sport grille, rocker-panel extensions and a front spoiler. The 19-inch split-10-spoke forged alloy wheels give the sedan a more planted look.
Performance: The $6,185 sport package adds sport-tuned air suspension, which reduces body sway and allows the driver to control the ride height. The variable gear-ratio steering offers better feedback for more precise handling. The Brembo brakes are powerful stoppers. Use the paddle shifters for easy shifting without letting go of the heated sport steering wheel. Rev matching makes downshifting smooth.
Interior: The sport front seats add bolstering for those quicker corners. The sport suspension controls are located near the shifter. The interior for the sport package comes only in black and saddle colors with the classy unpolished dark brown wood trim. The comfort package with sport (a $2,035 option) adds heated/cooled front seats, rear heated seats, power rear sunshade, parking assist, power door closers, power trunk open/close and headlamp washers.
