Check out that $13,200 Executive Class Seating Package, wouldya?!? Wow, the array of controls available to rear-seat passengers in the flip-down center armrest rivals the instrument panel in the original Lexus LS from twenty years ago. And it's certainly a wonderful place to ride, the equal or better of the rear seats from the obvious competitors: Mercedes-Benz S-class, BMW 7-series, Audi A8, and the new Jaguar XJ. If the Lexus doesn't offer quite as keen a driving experience as the aforementioned sedans from Europe, that's okay; the LS remains the purest expression of the Lexus philosophy and is just as appealing today as it was back in 1990.
