Numerous stabilizing fins help make the LS one of the most aerodynamically efficient cars in its segment with a 0.26 drag coefficient. Laser screw welding, body adhesives and other structural reinforcements increase rigidity and enhance control, steering feel and handling.
Drive Mode Select allows the driver to choose from three distinct drive settings (Eco, Normal and Sport S). Vehicles equipped with the available air suspension add Comfort and Sport S+ modes.
The available Air Suspension with Variable Gear Ratio Steering automatically adjusts the damping force for optimal comfort and performance. The available AWD system features a Torsen limited slip center differential to further enhance grip, traction and cornering stability.
An available Lane-Keep Assist system (LKA) helps the driver stay in the current visibly-marked lane.
The Blind Spot Monitor (BSM) uses rear millimeter-wave radar to monitor the vehicle rear side blind spots at 10 miles per hour or more. This feature includes Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA), which automatically operates when the vehicle is in reverse, alerting drivers to the approach of other vehicles when backing up.
Available All-Speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC) helps maintain a preset following distance from the vehicle ahead, using radar technology to sense the speed of a vehicle traveling directly in front. In stop-and-go traffic, it can apply the brakes to stop the car at speeds below 24 mph if the vehicle ahead stops and can automatically resume tracking the vehicle ahead, accelerating from a stop, by moving the cruise control lever up or depressing the accelerator pedal.
The available Automatic High Beam (AHB) system features a camera located in the inside rear-view mirror that detects light sources in front of the vehicle - including the headlamps of oncoming vehicles, the tail lamps of a vehicle ahead and street lighting - to automatically adjust the high beams on and off accordingly.
Front seats minimize pressure peaks and increase support. Both front seats feature a standard heating and cooling system with large heating and cooling areas for reduced heating and cooling times.
AWD models feature a standard heated steering wheel and Positive Temperature Coefficient (PTC) heating elements, which warm the front cabin area quickly after vehicle start-up. Windshield de-icer and headlamp washers are standard on AWD models.
