2005 Lexus LS430 interior review.

Well today I hade to get my serpantine belt replaced at the dealership. While I was waiting for the belt to be replaced I thought that I would look around at the Toyota’s and the Lexus models.

I looked at many model but the LS430 was appealing to me. I did not get to drive it so it will only be a interior review.

This picture may be a earlier model but it look about the same.

First and for most. The Lexus LS430 is a true luxury car. Everything about this car says luxury. The model I sat it was a 2005 ultra model with a MSRP of near $100,000.

Upon entry, the first thing I noticed was how good the materials in the vehicle felt. There was not a single piece of cheap plastic anywhere. Everything I touched was of a soft material that felt like rubber or of a very high leather feel. The interior design is not edgy or inspiring but is very traditional to a luxury car.

A Cadillac Deville or Seville owner should have no problem enjoying the luxury of this vehicle.

The seats were big and plush yet firm and had two seperate lumber adjustments. The bottom cushion also could be extended or retracted depending of whether you are short or tall and this can be done without moving the seats on the tracks.

All the window and lock switches were back illuminated. The wood interior felt of high quality and there was enough of it to satisfy any luxury owner.

For the back seat passenger. You truly are treated like a king. There is a power rear sunshade, side door sunshades, power rear door closers, reclining seats, heated and cooled seats with massage, a rear climated control system and a rear lighted vanity mirrors for both passengers. One other touch that I really liked was that you are able to move forward the front passenger seat if you are sitting behind it in the rear thanks to a second set of controls.

This car is not just a car you drive, but a car to be driven in.

The Lexus LS430‘s interior is so good that it is very hard to find fault in the interior. A couple things I did not like were that all those special features I mentioned about the rear are all useless if you put three people in the back because all the controls are hidden in the center armrests. This is also good becasue all the controls are hidden in the armrest when not in use.

I did not like the front cupholders as they did not seem all that good. Another thing is that the power seatbelt height controls do not go high enough as I would of liked. One final thing centers on where they put the driver temperature control.

The button next to the navigation system (as shown in the picture) on the left side is not easy to access.

Overall this is one very luxurious interior. Everything felt of very high quality.

I also really liked the rear fridge.

On a final note. what really stands out is how silent the car is when the doors are shut. It really felt like a vacum inside. The doors shut like a vault.

It is something I have never heard and none of other Lexus models came close to that experience. For most of the time I spent in the car I have the door open, I could hear background noise such as foot steps, people talking, the PA, etc. When I close the door there was absolutely no noise from the lobby.

None of the other Lexus models filtered out all the noise.

Overall a very well made interior.
