Lexus LS 600h Hybrid - Review

First Look

The 2010 Lexus LS 600h Hybrid combines the extravagant luxury of Lexus' top of the line sedan with a dash of environmental consciousness, thanks to its hybrid powertrain. It's not a truly green car, but it does manage fuel economy slightly better than average for a Super Luxury Car. The 2010 LS 600h Hybrid is offered in only one trim level with few options. The 2010 model year has few updates to the car.

The entire LS line got a few minor exterior tweaks, including new jeweled headlamps and a revised from bumper. The Hybrid also gets a new grille, and engineers have managed to reduce the size and weight of the battery pack. The 2010 LS 600h Hybrid is powered by a 5.9-liter V8 engine, paired with an electric motor, to produce a total of 438 horsepower. The LS Hybrid may not match the kind of speed a Mercedes-Benz S-Class Hybrid can, but it has a certain environmental credibility those cars can't equal.

The EPA states that the ratings for the 2010 will match those from 2009, which isn't too bad for a car boasting more than 400 horsepower and 2,000 lbs. The exterior of the 2010 LS 600h Hybrid is fairly reserved. The LS 600h is distinguished from its gasoline powered sibling by a bolder chrome grille and a collection of fairly discrete hybrid badges. The 600h is one of the more spacious of Lexus' cars. Inside, there is outstanding legroom in front and rear, and there are standard adjustable, heated and cooled seas for front seat passengers, and comfortable fixed position rear seats.

The cabin includes every electronic device Lexus has ever designed, but there is an absence of a single user-interface device that controls all clime and entertainment functions.
