Lexus keeps you in lane

LANE DEPARTURE ALERT & LANE KEEP ASSIST

STAY ON TRACK

Even the most focused drivers can be distracted. If you start to drift from your lane, Lane Departure Alert steps in to keep you on track. The steering wheel vibrates gently, and discreet sound and light notifications recommend you correct your path. Calm confidence is yours, especially on motorways and longer journeys.

CONTROLLED DIRECTION

A smart camera detects white and yellow lane markings. If you stray off course, an audio-visual alert is activated automatically. And, if you choose, Lane Keep Assist will apply an additional touch of counter-steering to guide you smoothly back into lane.

Alert and attentive, these features work in combination to support driving concentration over longer periods. Steering is more effortless. Lane Departure Alert and Lane Keep Assist give your eyes a dependable backup at all times.

AUTOMATIC HIGH BEAM & ADAPTIVE HIGH BEAM SYSTEM

INTELLIGENT
ILLUMINATION

Driving in the dark is one of life’s pure sensory pleasures, though navigating through the night presents new challenges. Our features support your vision, keeping you and your fellow drivers safe. Automatic High Beam turns on and off automatically when needed. Adaptive High Beam System takes this to another level, intelligently shading headlights for approaching vehicles, while surrounding areas stay fully lit.

CONFIDENCE AT NIGHT

Automatic High Beam uses smart sensors to stay several steps ahead, searching out and seeing what your eyes don’t immediately detect. Cameras on the windshield quickly identify both headlights of approaching vehicles and taillights in front of you, switching instinctively between high and low beam.

Adaptive High Beam lights up the road, but keeps any vehicles in shade. A camera tracks the car’s motion to ensure precision shading. Both systems optimise your natural vision, whilst ensuring other drivers aren’t dazzled. Risk of collision is reduced. When the sun goes down, your sight is supported.

BLIND SPOT MONITOR

CLEARER
VISION

Humans don’t have complete peripheral vision, so Blind Spot Monitor gives you the support you need. Designed to spot vehicles approaching from adjacent lanes, it warns you whenever another driver’s on the move. Retain your composure and change lanes with complete confidence.

ANTICIPATE OTHER DRIVERS

Powered by smart sensors, Blind Spot Monitor surveys the road on your behalf, scoping the areas you’d otherwise struggle to keep in view. It asserts itself when you’re changing lanes, to ensure vehicles in your blind spot aren’t overlooked.

It’s helpful when you’re parking too. A Rear Cross-Traffic Braking System helps you manoeuvre by keeping you aware of any vehicles coming your way, from either side. If it senses a collision, it supports you by applying the brakes. With clearer, wider vision, your wits are always about you.

ADAPTIVE CRUISE CONTROL & PRE-COLLISION SYSTEM

DRIVING
CONFIDENCE

Human judgement is strengthened when teamed with smart driving systems. Adaptive Cruise Control determines the distance between you and the vehicles in front and adjusts your speed accordingly, whilst Pre-Collision System detects any vehicles and obstructions ahead. It warns you if a collision is likely and automatically brakes if you haven’t acted. With uncertainty reduced, you can drive with assurance.

RELAX ON LONGER JOURNEYS

Adaptive Cruise Control and Pre-Collision System use a millimetre-wave radar to scope out the road. Your speed is refined—it’s controlled within a pre-set range to match the pace of other drivers. You’re warned if a collision is anticipated, and when contact is judged to be unavoidable your brakes will be automatically applied.

With Adaptive Cruise Control and Pre-Collision System on your side, you can trust you’ve got the road mapped out, moment by moment. Long drives become less tiring, and the need to brake suddenly is a rare occurrence. Worry less and enjoy peace of mind on every journey.

IMAGINING THE FUTURE OF SAFETY

THE ROAD AHEAD

The first Lexus LS was launched 28 years ago. It defined luxury and won critical acclaim for its performance, smoothness, quietness, build quality and dependability.

Now the all-new LS for 2018 is set to bring about another revolution. Lexus Safety System+ features alongside advanced new technology, including the world’s first intuitive pedestrian detection system. Our flagship saloon heralds a new era of intelligent driver assistance.

THE FUTURE OF SAFETY TECHNOLOGY

THE NEW LS

INTELLIGENT AWARENESS

Advanced active safety systems make the LS more aware of its surroundings, offering smart support to you as the driver. Omnidirectional sensors around the vehicle, including stereo cameras, monitor the situation at all times, from parking manoeuvres to collision avoidance.

This awareness informs intuitive pedestrian detection, which works together with world-first active steering. If a pedestrian is detected on the road ahead and a collision is imminent, the system automatically applies brakes and steers around the person, while staying in lane. The driver is alerted via the head-up display, which at 24” is the world’s largest, keeping you constantly informed on the road.

THE NEW LS

LEXUS CODRIVE

Lexus CoDrive also offers high-level driving support in the LS, providing steering control by intelligently reading your intentions as the driver. The result is continuous driving assistance on motorways, and confidence as standard.

The LS is leads progress towards smarter driving technology for Lexus, designed at all times to place you in control, assured in your safety.
