Costs & verdict

Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is

Shock horror, the LS isn’t cheap. Even the entry-level version has a price that starts with a seven, while a top-spec Premier model with the luxurious cut-glass and pleated trim will cost six figures.

Still, all models get fancy 20in wheels, leather seats that are electrically adjustable up front, an around-view monitor, automatic emergency braking and a big 12.3in infotainment system. Luxury trim is our favourite, though, because you get a Mark Levinson stereo, four-zone climate control and heating, cooling and electrical adjustment for the rear seats for not a lot of extra cash. F Sport is the same price, but you miss out on a few luxuries to get sporty stuff that we’d forego on a car like this. As for Premier, it does have all the toys but it is pricey.

Overview

Well equipped and distinctive but too flawed in key areas to recommend

  • High-quality interior
  • Well equipped
  • Reasonable CO2 emissions
  • Engine coarse when revved
  • Lumpy ride
  • Fiddly infotainment system
