LEXUS is upgrading its LS 500 flagship with added technology, some design changes and a new paint finish to enhance its looks.

The new car will be released in the UK before the year is out and the improvements include modifications to the 3.5-litre hybrid powertrain to make driving smoother and enhance its electric performance.

On the outside the LS gets a reshaped front bumper and a dark metallic finish to the grille while new-look slimmer headlamps feature Lexus's Bladescan adaptive high beam system.

The sportier LS F also gets a revised grille which now wraps around the corner of the bumper.

A fully automated parking system makes its debut on the LS and the set up has a memory function which stores data about regularly used parking slots.

Other changes include a revised 12.3-inch touchscreen which sits on top of the facia and is now fully smartphone compatible.

For the new LS Lexus has also developed a Lunar Silver paint finish which has a mirror-like sheen to highlight the contours of the body.

Prices for the new model are still to be announced. The current LS 500h costs from £82,150.
