Inside, the LS 460 F-Sport features leather trim on the steering wheel and aluminum trim in place of the standard 460's wood. The seats are more deeply bolstered and should hold better while cornering.
Lexus has upgraded the LED daytime running lamp with what it calls a "light tube" that illuminates as a solid strip, rather than a dotted line. The projector headlights can also be optioned up to LED illumination.
These optional hollow-channel wheels are available in 18- and 19-inch sizes and feature an integrated sound-dissipating chamber in the rim to reduce road noise. Even after a lengthy explanation by Lexus' chief engineer, I'm not really sure how it works.
The LS still looks like it was machined from a solid chunk of metal, but the spindle grille almost makes it looks like it's bursting out of itself. Personally, I think the LS 460 wears the new design well.
A version of Toyota's Entune system, dubbed Lexus Enform, brings apps to the dashboard, including OpenTable reservations, MovieTickets.com, Yelp reviews, Facebook check-in, and Pandora and iHeartRadio audio streaming.
This is what Lexus' interior designers call the "interaction zone." Here you'll find the controls for the drive-select system, the remote touch controller, the shifter, and the seat heater/cooler controls.
