Enjoy more advanced moments of prestige motoring: the 2010 Lexus LS 460 and
LS 460 L luxury sedans feature even more standard intuitive convenience and
technology

TORONTO, Dec. 23 /CNW/ - Canadians turn to Lexus for a contemporary luxury motoring experience - one in which advanced technology, intuitive design and modern amenities take luxury, comfort and convenience to new levels. And the pinnacle of this pursuit is found in the LS series prestige luxury sedans, available in three models for the 2010 year, with revised styling and even more prestige convenience features and state of the art technology fitted as standard.

"The LS series created Lexus - and a new, contemporary take on the luxury automobile - when it launched the brand in the 1990s, so it's fitting that we continue to expand the realm of prestige motoring with a dramatic infusion of advanced yet intuitive technology on all 2010 LS models," said Larry Hutchinson, Director of Lexus in Canada. "From upgraded styling, to audio to parking systems, the new LS 460 and LS 460 L models are better equipped than ever before. For those in pursuit of more advanced moments behind the wheel, we have created distinct new options packages that take the LS series into the next decade."

The 2010 LS series is available in three models: the LS 460 with Rear Wheel Drive, the LS 460 with All Wheel Drive, and the long-wheelbase LS 460 L with All Wheel Drive.
