19 000 Shikime 834 mijë

This is the new 2021 LS 500 ($140,000 CAD 110,00 USD), and today it meets its older brother the 2009 LS460 (10,998 CAD, $8,600 USD). Both are large spacious luxury sedans, both have all-wheel drive and while the 460’s V8 pushes out 386 hp, the newer 500’s Twin-Turbo V6 has 416 hp to play with. Is the new LS 500 worth every penny? Or is the LS 460 the best value buy on the market today? Watch as Thomas and James answer this question and more! SUBSCRIBE.

    I want to why lexus drops in value so much, they are really nice cars with great reliability. I just don't get it especially since Toyotas tend not to drop in value too much... Not complaining as someone without a lot of money because one day the new car will probably be obtainable for me and only be at half it's engine life.

    we buy lexuses, not because it outperforms MB in luxury catagory, but because it's a luxury car that's the most reliable. I'd still get a 2018 because as a driver it fit my 6'5" self so much better than most other luxury and economy cars.

    The older generation LS as shown here had huge interior quality problems. The dash plastics were meaty and sticky. Same for door panels. Plastics felt cheap and wood trim looked like laminated plastic even if it was real. These cars were great riding trash. .

    That Toyota V8 is absolutely legendary. Beast of a motor. Will run to 500k miles. That New V6 however will die around 150k miles I bet or will need serious money in maintenance and rebuilding the Turbos. Totally wrong move to go the V8 route in such large vehicles.

    Why didn’t you use a long wheelbase 460? The 460L in the top trim level would have been a more appropriate comparison. Especially considering that you used the top trim level 500 to compare it to... 🤦🏻‍♂️

    Sure the Germans may have more bells and whistles but the difference shows when the warranty runs out. You have million mile LS's and you have BMW 7 series that get mechanically totaled because of some plastic part deep inside the engine.

    The old LS is far batter. It might be one of the best used cars to buy considering how fully loaded they are and that they're very reliable , that NA V8 will easily outlast that TT V6. Not to mention the front grille! I also think its a crime to spend 6 figures on a Lexus. You have that amount of money to spend on a vehicle, you can afford to buy and run a Mercedes that has more appeal.

    Here's the thing with presence. Most people can't tell the difference between a Camry and an S-Class when they're looking at other cars on the road, so really who cares what the old one looks like because to 98% of people the new one will also look like "just a car".
