LS500h. Is there any difference between Takumi and Premier?

Recommended Posts

Hello, I can not see an LS500h Premier any more, I can see the Takumi one.

 

Are these two more or less the same?

 

Thanks in advance

According to the Lexus UK website the 500h is available in 3 "Grades" 

LS From £76,900
F-Sport from £84,300
Takumi from £102,915 

I don't know what spec the Premier was though 😕

I think, and don't hold me to this, the LS from £76900 is the petrol twin turbo. Not available in the UK.

The F Sport from £84300, rear 2wd, sports pedals, 2 zone climate, 10 spoke wheels, fabric interior.

Premier Model, from £98000 All 4wd, 4 zone climate, front seat mounted entertainment screens for rear seat passengers, plus everything else really, Looks like they are now only supplying the Takumi spec, which is the Premier spec, with the upgraded Kiroko cut glass interior door handle surrounds and the hand pleated door cards,

This is from memory when researching for mine, their "configure your LS" website does seem a bit confusing.

Great, thanks, so in essence, they are the same

 

Are you happy with yours?

Yes, very. Only problem I've had is I had a Heart Attack the week-end after I bought it (don't think buying it bought that on) so in Hospital for a week, not allowed to drive for 4 weeks, an op. on my carotid artery so not allowed to drive for another week and now we're in lockdown. I've put about 3k miles on in nearly 9 months. But, no regrets, great car.

Don't forget there is also a premium pack or whatever it is called you can buy for a basic version.

It is an equivalent to Luxury grade before the global change in 2019.

If it helps, here's the brochure for the LS in February, which has the Premier listed rather than the Takumi.

There isn't an LS brochure at the moment, but when there is you can always compare!

In the beginning, it was much easier.  You just got an LS, and it had everything!
