Which used Lexus LS saloon should I buy?

There's only the one model to choose from, and just about everything you could think of is already included on or in it. So, in addition to what some may think of as the regular goodies, there are keyless entry, air-conditioned front seats, soft-close doors, leather upholstery, rain-sensitive wipers, sat-nav and air suspension, all as standard.

The 4.3-litre V8 pull strongly at low revs and in the mid-range to waft the car along comfortably, with all the power going through a wonderfully smooth six-speed automatic gearbox. The result is a swift take-off, effortless cruising and rapid acceleration on the move.

There are no fewer than 10 airbags in the car, including two to protect the knees of the front occupants. Active safety features are just as impressive, with standard traction control. Lexus was also the first manufacturer to score 100% in What Car?'s Security Supertest.
