The cockpit functions are easily operated through a detachable screen on the armrests. The extended body length of the 4-seater model also allows for satisfactory luggage space. In the 6-seater model, a quick sliding function has been added to the second row, enabling rear passengers to enter and exit the vehicle more quietly and efficiently.
The LM’s powertrain is another highlight, with the 350h model featuring a 2.5-liter engine coupled with a gasoline-electric system. This combination delivers a combined output of 250 horsepower and is equipped with electronic four-wheel drive E-Four AWD. The LM 350h achieves 0-100km/h in just 8.7 seconds, has a top speed of 190km/h, and offers an average fuel consumption of 16.2km/L. The 500h model, on the other hand, features a 2.4-liter turbo engine producing 275 horsepower and a gas-electric system, resulting in a combined horsepower of 371. With a Direct Shift 6-speed manual transmission and Direct4 AWD electronic four-wheel drive, the LM 500h can accelerate from 0 to 100km/h in just 6.9 seconds.
The LM prioritizes safety with the inclusion of Lexus Safety System + 3.0, an intelligent driving assistance system. This system offers a range of functions, including adaptive cruise control and road speed limit recognition. In addition, the LM is equipped with an electronic door lock E-Latch, AAS safe seat exit link door lock mechanism, surround view images, and automatic parking assistance AP. These features significantly reduce the driver’s workload and enhance overall safety.
