The Lexus LM350 is a first class executive MPV developed to offer occupants spacious luxury. The elegance and exquisite details in the Lexus LM350 are part of the Lexus philosophy of offering omotenashi (outstanding hospitality).
This Luxury Mover is styled with a dynamic outlook. The Lexus signature spindle grille dominates the fascia and is contrasted by a pair of ultra compact 3-beam LED projector headlights. The high waistline gives the impression of a vehicle with strength and space.
Driving this executive MPV is a 3.5L quad cam V6 engine producing 296 hp and 361 Nm of torque, offering a luxurious cruise with ample power on tap. The power is sent to the front wheels via a direct-shift 8-speed automatic transmission. The wheels are 18″ noise-reducing alloys finished in a hyper chrome metallic blend to match the chrome accents on the vehicle.
“In true Lexus fashion, the engineers have crafted a vehicle that heralds a new level of dignity in luxury motoring. From the immense road presence of the vehicle to the finite details of each interior component, the all-new Lexus LM350 is crafted to exceed the desires of those who appreciate the highest level of style and comfort on the move,” said President of Lexus Malaysia Mr Ravindran K.
Inside the Lexus LM350, the driver benefits from many of the features available in other Lexus models including a 12.3″ touchscreen with controls that be activated through a touch pad, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, and plush semi-aniline leather seats. However, much of the focus is placed on pampering the rear passengers.
The Lexus LM350 has only four seats as priority is given to the VIP ambience. The pair of rear Adaptipedic lounge seats offer generous legroom even when fully reclined. The seats offer an Ottoman massage function as well as air cooling and heating. These are accessed by touch controls on the rear central console. The luxurious cabin ambience is enhanced with the dynamic full-bodied sound stage created by the 19-speaker Mark Levinson reference sound system.
Another notable feature in the interior is the large 26″ full HD display panel mounted between the two rows of seats. The screen has numerous playback functions and connectivity options so you can catch up on your favourite shows or conduct meetings in Lexus comfort. To ensure privacy, Lexus engineers have included a glass partition that can be raised or lowered at a touch of a button.
Further, there is a fold-out magazine rack to ensure that your daily readings can be tucked away neatly, while large cubicles on both sides of the vehicle allows you to elegantly stow a handbag or an attache case. A mini fridge also ensures your drinks are kept chilled at the optimum temperature.
“Lexus has once again delivered on the promise of elevating executive-class travel on the road. Whether your journeys are for urban commutes or inter-state travels, the notion of being transported in sophisticated elegance, top-level comfort and advanced safety is not compromised. Few vehicles on the road today are able deliver you in such a capable and dignified manner as the LM350 does,” added Deputy Chairman of Lexus Malaysia Mr Akio Takeyama.
Safety systems are a priority for all Lexus models, with the LM350 featuring the Lexus Safety System + (LSS+). It includes the Pre-Collision System (PCS), Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC), Lane Tracing Assist (LTA), Lane Departure Alert (LDA), Adaptive High-Beam System (AHS) and Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA). There is also seven airbags, including two side curtain airbags to reduce the risk of serious injury in a collision.
The official launch of the Lexus LM350 is scheduled for May 2021, with the first owners expecting to receive the keys a month later. It is now available for booking at all six authorised Lexus Centres in Malaysia.
The retail price of the four-seater Lexus LM350 is RM1,148,000 (on the road without insurance for Peninsular Malaysia). Two colours are available i.e. Black and White Pearl Crystal Shine. All Lexus Malaysia vehicles enjoy a comprehensive 5-year unlimited mileage warranty.
