Another key benefit of the rear suspension is that the packaging yields greater cargo area room. The front suspension geometry was optimized with a thick stabilizer bar. Inversely wound front coil springs compress in opposite directions, preventing the negative effects of suspension compression on steering resulting in better straight line stability.</p> <div class="image-clear"></div><p><a href="http://www.autospectator.com/cars/models/2013-lexus-rx-350-amp-rx-350-f-sport-review-specs-photos-features">read more</a></p> 2013 Crossover Crossover SUV Lexus Lexus RX 350 Lexus RX 350 F Sport Luxury cars luxury crossovers Luxury SUVs models SUVs Fri, 31 Aug 2012 10:45:22 +0000 admin 92924 at http://www.autospectator.com/cars 2013 Lexus LS 460 (LS 460 L, LS 460 F SPORT, LS 600h L Hybrid) review, specs, photos, features http://www.autospectator.com/cars/models/2013-lexus-ls-460-ls-460-l-ls-460-f-sport-review-specs-photos-features <h2>The new 2013 Lexus LS 460 luxury sedan</h2> <p>With its dynamic handling, bold new design and superior craftsmanship, the 2013 LS flagship models hail the future of the Lexus brand as it embarks on its third decade in the premium luxury category. </p> <p><span class="inline inline-left"><img src="http://www.autospectator.com/cars/files/images/2013-Lexus-LS-460-021.jpg" alt="2013 Lexus LS 460 photo" title="2013 Lexus LS 460 photo" class="image image-_original" width="500" height="333" /><span class="caption" style="width: 498px;"><strong>2013 Lexus LS 460 photo</strong></span></span><em>Find more new 2013 Lexus LS 460 pictures in our <a href="http://www.autospectator.com/cars/image/tid/7458">2013 Lexus LS 460 photo gallery</a></em> (48 photos)</p> <p><em>Find more new 2013 Lexus LS 460 F Sport pictures in our <a href="http://www.autospectator.com/cars/image/tid/7459">2013 Lexus LS 460 F Sport photo gallery</a></em> (33 photos)</p> <p><em>Find more new 2013 Lexus LS 600h L Hybrid pictures in our <a href="http://www.autospectator.com/cars/image/tid/7460">2013 Lexus LS 600h L Hybrid photo gallery</a></em> (22 photos)</p> <p>While retaining many of the qualities that have defined Lexus for more than 20 years, the LS reaches new heights with an exciting blend of beautiful design, modern refinement and advanced technology.</p> <p><span class="inline inline-left"><img src="http://www.autospectator.com/cars/files/images/2013-Lexus-LS-460-013.jpg" alt="2013 Lexus LS 460 photo" title="2013 Lexus LS 460 photo" class="image image-_original" width="500" height="333" /><span class="caption" style="width: 498px;"><strong>2013 Lexus LS 460 photo</strong></span></span></p> <div class="image-clear"></div><p><a href="http://www.autospectator.com/cars/models/2013-lexus-ls-460-ls-460-l-ls-460-f-sport-review-specs-photos-features">read more</a></p> 2013 AWD Green Cars hybrids Lexus Lexus LS 460 Lexus LS 460L Lexus LS 600h L Hybrid Luxury cars Luxury sedans models sedans Fri, 31 Aug 2012 09:55:59 +0000 admin 92859 at http://www.autospectator.com/cars 2013 Lexus IS F review, specs, photos, features http://www.autospectator.com/cars/models/2013-lexus-f-review-specs-photos-features <h2>The new 2013 Lexus IS F supercar</h2> <p>The IS F pioneered Lexus’ high performance portfolio when it was developed.
