Heavy-handed exterior styling
Still a less desirable brand in the luxury saloon sector behind the likes of Mercedes-Benz, Jaguar, BMW and Audi, but one of the best engineered cars of its time and owners love the treatment they receive from the dealer network. The options list is short because many of the items you'd expect to pay extra for on a Mercedes-Benz S-Class or Audi A8 are fitted as standard.
The LS is roomy, comfortable and luxurious. Heavy-handed styling at the front, partly resolved by a facelift in 2003, spoils what would otherwise be an elegant luxury saloon.
