Verdict

Lexus' goal to take on BMW, Jaguar and Mercedes-Benz, in terms of executive style and capability, are apparent in the LS400, which was rapidly accepted by luxury car buyers worldwide as a well-specced and competent rival to 7-Series and S-Class. It cost a lot less than its premium rivals new, but used values have closed in recent years. LS400 equals its rivals for comfort, spaciousness, power, refinement, equipment and reliability.
