    This is the all new Lexus LS. It's got the style to stand out against the conservative looks of its German rivals, but does it have the substance to compete against the Audi A8, BMW 7 Series and Mercedes S-Class? I was invited to the launch to find out!

German cars aare full of electronic crap sorry to say although I love Mercedes,but the thing is the more less electronics makes the car more reliable that’s why Lexus and Toyota they are known for there reliability,as far as reliability is concerned Lexus LS is far better than German rivals the looks of it stands out from the rest which you don’t see everyday because of the spindle grille.

What I love about this Lexus is that there are so many standard features included with that price. AND the car drives dam well AND is reliable as hell. The merc costs like 20k more for the same thing and more time spent in the dealership than the road.

The Lexus might not have the performance of a German car but the reliability and pleasure you get from riding a more than enough capable machine with great reliability and smooth driving is second to none. I’m always worried about my merc from breaking down. I’ve been to the dealership too many times for the dumbest electronic shit failing in that stupid car. I’ll never buy a German car again. Lexus is legit the best luxury brand out there!

Direct comparison with options list and dynamics,engines variety,the Mercedes wins easily. However,fast look at the used Lexus LS and S klasse shows that Mercedes looses its value over the years 10 times faster than any Lexus. Why? Because nobody wants to own Mercedes S model when its out of warranty. Audi,BMW,and Mercedes are great cars to lease,not to own. Great car to own is Lexus. And exclusivity wise,i will always take it over the Germans. More than certainly you wont see it on every corner,and more than certain nobody will think i am a taxi driver.

I strongly believe that in the not too distant future Lexus will likely outpace Mercedes sales by leaps and bounds. I can see Audi and BMW still competing but Mercedes doesn't do luxury cars as good as Lexus because the quality is never less than exceptional in Lexus. And the perception of Audi and BMW is that of performance driving with luxury. Further, It's a Toyota product and Toyota doesn't make unreliable crap. It's wonderful to have so many features but if they fail easily and only in 5 years or so they as well as the car itself are wastes of money. And a Lexus traditionally retains its value very well over German rivals.

I've read a lot of comments and as an owner of both of an S Class and an LS i can say this : First of all everybody has a different taste, so don't go all angry on me, both of these cars look beautiful, both of them offer a lot of options, but the Lexus is far more superior than Mercedes. As a car lover, and as a person who has driven Mercedes almost his whole life, after getting the new LS i will say this, if you would like to show off with an S Class, just because the name is big, which will probably starting breaking down after 150,000KM go for the Mercedes, if you would like a car which is reliable and has been confirmed better than the S Class in everything except handling than go for Lexus.

I’m pretty sure that Lexus will top the big three of 🇩🇪 in reliability cs new generation of Germans are quite problematic and built so that even if the small and cheap part is broken you have to change it with the big one so that you pay 5 times more, despite the fact that I’m an owner and life time appreciator of Mercedes!

Have a look at a 1989 S Class or 7 Series then compare it to an 89 LS400. Both the Merc and the Beemer still look fantastic while the Lexus looks old and plain and frankly quite dreadful. The same will be true of this Lexus in 30 years and therein lies the lesson. Better to adhere to instantly recognisable well evolved corporate styling rather than the latest gee whiz styling gimmicks. A single glance at a 1936 BMW 328 is all it takes to know it's a Beemer, and what a gorgeous looking car it is.

That's the stupidest thing i've heard, you sound like a guy who doesn't own any of them and has no idea what they offer, currently by any expert in the world, has confirmed the LS is far better than his german competitors. Try reading a few articles at least first than share an opinion.
