LEXUS is launching a luxury MPV in the UK with the arrival of its three-model LM range.

The line-up for the LM - which stands for luxury mover - is priced from £89,995 and comprises front and all-wheel-drive variants.

The company says the LM combines ultra-refined performance of a limousine in a spacious people carrier package.

All versions are powered by Lexus's 2.5-litre self-charging hybrid electric powertrain, with either front-wheel drive or all-wheel control with Lexus's electronic E-Four system.

The 247bhp system, also features in the new NX 350h and RX 350h models.

Prices for the all-wheel-drive LM 350h start from £92,995 with the range topping Takumi LM 350 costing from £112,995.

Dimensions for the LM are 5,130mm long, 1,890mm wide and 1,945mm high.

The equipment specification for the seven-seat LM 350h include 19-inch alloy wheels, power-adjustable front and middle row seats with semi-aniline leather upholstery with Ultrasuede inserts, twin fixed sunroofs, dual-zone climate control with nanoe-X air quality system and power sunshades.

The infotainment package includes the Lexus Link Pro multimedia system, a 21-speaker Mark Levinson 3D Surround Sound audio and a 14-inch monitor for the rear passengers that deploys from the ceiling.

For the driver there is a heated, power-adjustable steering wheel with wood inserts Panoramic View Monitor, Intelligent Park Assist with remote parking function via the Lexus Link app and head-up display.

The Takumi version of the LM delivers has a higher level of on-board luxury, with only two multi-function rear seats which can be fully reclined to horizontal and offer seven different massage programmes.

Individual folding tables are housed in the outer arm rests and charging stations with USB ports and wireless charging tray are located the cabin's side panels.

A partition between the front and rear cabin houses a 48-inch widescreen monitor and a glass panel that can be dimmed for privacy.

The monitor has three viewing modes - full screen, cinema and separate left and right screens showing independent content while users can project content directly from their smartphone or tablet, or connect to the screen via two HDMI ports.

Beneath the monitor there are individual left and right side glove boxes and a refrigerator box.

There's also a more sophisticated Lexus Climate Concierge that uses thermal sensors to precisely control and direct heating and ventilation.

Control of the cabin features and functions is provided by a controller, designed like a smartphone which can be used to manage the audio system, climate control settings, seat functions, interior lighting and the window blinds.

The LM is equipped with the latest Lexus Safety System+ active safety and driver assistance features, together with a blind spot monitor and rear cross traffic alert, front cross traffic alert and LED headlights with the AHS adaptive high-beam system.

A smart exit assist system helps prevent doors being opened inadvertently into the path of traffic and cyclists approaching from the rear.

Deliveries are expected to start in November. Performance data is still to be announced.
