Powertrain & Performance

Powered by a 3.0L biturbo V6 engine and 9-speed automatic, the S 450 achieves 362 hp. Equipped with a 4.6L V8 engine and 8-speed automatic, the 2018 Lexus LS offers greater horsepower: 386 hp. When it comes to fuel-efficiency, though, the LS is only capable of a 16 mpg city/24 mpg highway rating. The S 450, however, excels with a 19 mpg city/26 mpg highway rating, making it the more gas-friendly option. The S 450 also comes standard with adaptive air suspension—AIRMATIC®—which is optional for the Lexus LS.

Standard Conveniences

The 2018 S-Class and 2018 LS offer plenty of high-end features for exceptional on-the-road comfort. Both come with leather appointments, front power seats with memory and heating, a navigation aid, a 12.3-inch display, and telematics. However, on the S 450, you’ll find several standard amenities that require a model upgrade or are simply unavailable on the LS, including:

  • Leather interior trim
  • 64-color/3-zone LED ambient lighting
  • Power sunshade for the roof
  • Power rear-window sunshade
  • CD changer
  • Electronic trunk closer
  • Heated, laser-cut windshield wipers

Safety

Regardless of which sedan you choose, you’ll enjoy revolutionary safety features, such as keyless entry, a rearview camera, memory-adjustable exterior mirrors, and rain-sensing wipers. If you’d like an extra level of security, however, the S 450 is the way to go. Unlike the LS, the S 450 comes standard with the following:

  • Active Brake Assist (Forward Collision Mitigation with Automatic Braking)
  • LED headlamps with Active Curve Illumination and Adaptive Highbeam Assist
  • ATTENTION ASSIST® (driver attention monitor)
  • Blind Spot Assist
  • Lane Keeping Assist
