The Lexus LM 350 Luxury MPV Is A Business-Class Suite On Wheels
Lexus Malaysia is looking to take transportation to the next level with its latest MPV, the LM 350. The flagship model by Lexus exemplifies the definition of omotenashi, the Japanese art of exceptional experiences and hospitality that is sure to envelop you in luxury and style.
Designed from the ground up as a mobile first class lounge, the LM 350 is made for the busy professional who demands comfort and privacy. From the outset, the model features a dynamic profile that expresses elegance and confidence in motion. It is defined by its large spindle grille that is contrasted by a pair of triple-beam LED projector headlights.
Sharp and bold, the exterior lines are accentuated by chrome highlights. The MPV rides on 18-inch alloy rims that are said to reduce noise when in motion. Lexus only offers the four-seater variant in Malaysia (comprised of two seats in front and two in the back) with emphasis placed on pampering rear passengers.
Step inside and be greeted by a spacious business-class cabin space with a pair of VIP lounge seats that offers plenty of legroom. It's worth noting that the seats are even able to fully recline. In addition, the seats feature semi-Aniline leather and a plush Adaptipedic cushioning that offers exceptional level of comfort. It also comes with an Ottoman massage function along with individual cooling and heating functions for each seat.
Unlike most other MPVs, the LM 350 has a large partition that separates the from and the rear cabin, giving passengers privacy. For added privacy, an electronically-controlled glass panel can be raised at the touch of a button.
There’s also a 26-inch HD display that plays back Blu-ray discs and also connects to your smartphone for conducting meetings while on the go. This is complemented by a state-of-the-art 19-speaker Mark Levinson sound system. Other features present in the cabin include a built-in mini fridge for storing food and drinks.

Additionally, the LM 350 employs a suspension system that uses swing valve shock absorber technology to give passengers a smoother ride.
