Lexus LS 600h Hybrid Interior and Exterior Overview

Aug 9, 2008
Considering that most reviews begin with talk of the exterior of the car, it is definitely time to get to that exterior. And the exterior of the LS 600h is simply astounding and amazing. It is very obviously a sedan, as the body is very representative of the sedan, yet there is a more exquisite aspect to the 600h.

For one thing, it is fascinating just how distinct the little hybrid emblem on the rear door's lower edge can be, because it truly draws your eye. It sets the 600h apart from other hybrids, and is only a small point of difference. Yet, the hybrid's badge is a slight little change that can make all the difference.

As for the very body of the LS 600h, the structure is very much an array of lines that are artistically put together with the tight panel seems to create a deep and smooth look. Even the paint job reflects the amount of effort and time placed on the vehicle, as the paint job is hand-rubbed.

Like many hybrids, given that the concern for air resistance is very much a real one, the 600h is aerodynamic in body structure, as well as a few other features on the body of the vehicle that make this hybrid seem smooth on the road. And even though some may be concerned that all these features are just about the artistic or aesthetic approach, have no fear - the exterior of the vehicle is specifically built to increase the efficiency of the hybrid technology.

Before believing that this vehicle would most likely be suited to a woman, think again. The exterior design has a roofline that resembles a coupe, and the wheelbase looks less like pulled taffy on this vehicle. The result is a sedan that has enough clout and power behind it to make it appealing for men to drive, making him look more sexy, athletic and attractive. And if you're wondering why athletic, the truth is that the car is built to seem powerful and good with heavy duty work.

Interior Review

The LS 600h is first and foremost a Lexus, which means that it is part of a luxury line, so one should expect a comfortable, sleek and sophisticated interior with the Lexus. In this particular vehicle, those words describe it accurately. The actual finish on the car is of a fantastic quality, giving the car the sense of class and means that it requires as a luxury vehicle. On top of that, instead of having all of the buttons centralized into one cramped section, the buttons and controls are spread out around the car and contain intuitive programming as it is.

For this particular vehicle, five passengers can easily fit into the sedan's interior comfortably. The back seat especially is roomy enough so that passengers can stretch out and relax, which certainly can be a trip-saver when taking long road trips with family or friends. Even the driver's seat is incredibly comfortable, comfortable enough that stress seems to melt away from the driver while there, especially when it is much easier to find the best driving position.

Because of the wheelbase, which is extended in the North American version, there is even more room in the back than would normally be. An additional five inches of leg room can be added to conventional Lexus LS models, making this vehicle one where passengers can relax, move around while they sit, and not bump into each other.

As for the cabin itself, the operation of the navigation system is remarkably simple and user-friendly, as well as the gauges in the car. The actual interior is blissfully quiet, and the seats, which are leather, are incredibly soft and plush, giving the interior an extremely luxurious feeling. As well as the seats themselves being comfortable, the actual gauge cluster has a tachometer and other several gadgets for your amusement.

The actual cargo space in the trunk ranges around 11.65 cubic feet and is better than the rest of the Lexus LS hybrids. This particular hybrid actually has room to fit duffel or golf bags, where as the older model of hybrid could not from the battery pack being housed in the trunk.
