If you already own or are a big fan of Lexus, you’ll know that the brand does luxury at a price point that no other carmaker can match. While Mercedes-Benz boasts the tradition of a big name badge and BMW fans go on and on about their supposedly incredible driving dynamics, a Lexus is something else altogether. 

There’s really no such thing as a cheap luxury car but when you check out the craftsmanship and materials on an upper-tier Lexus, they usually look like they usually look like they come from a car costing more.

That may be stretching it in the case of the already-expensive S$570k Lexus LS 500h, but this Japanese challenger to the Mercedes-Benz S-Class is still a class act. It’s an update on a design first introduced in 2018, with improvements mainly found in the cabin details and the suspension tuning.
