Lexus LS 460: Good Car, Good Sounds

Tuesday, October 16th, 2007

There are characteristics that vehicles do have. Take the Lexus brand of the Toyota Motor Corporation. All Lexus vehicles have this distinct quality that is simply Lexus. Just by listening to it, you would know that it is a Lexus vehicle.

When you close a door of any Lexus vehicle, you will notice the solid thunk of the door. And there would be no such rattle of the Lexus auto parts against other metals – this you could hear on some vehicles. Aside from this, you would also notice that when you turn on the engine, it is refined and you will not hear any clunking sounds that are common in other vehicles.

And to add to the list, Lexus has also made sure that sound quality of the vehicle’s audio system is not going to be left behind. Just take the newest Lexus LS 460. The company has had Mark Levinson on the audio system for this vehicle. And just so you know, Mark Levinson is a popular expert in hi-fi not only in the United States but in the whole world. And Lexus has been in a partnership with Levinson since 1998.

As per the newest Lexus LS 460, the company has asked and commissioned Levinson to add in a premium audio system that was modified and tailored specially for the vehicle. This new equipment also holds nineteen speakers for a better quality of sound and a much enjoyable ride for the passengers.

The Lexus LS 460 is the flagship of the brand and it has been created as a full sized luxury car. It has been in production since 1989 and it has found worthwhile competition with vehicles like the Acura RL, Cadillac DTS, Lincoln Town Car, Mercedes Benz S Class, Infiniti Q45, and the BMW 7 series.

And because the Lexus LS 460 is remarkably quiet inside, the new premium sound audio system would be further emphasized. The whole system includes an amplifier capable of working with fifteen channels. The speaker system works on 450 watts. And what is best is that these components of the whole audio system has been made specially for the Lexus LS 460 that you would not need take away or reduce any part of your vehicle for it to fit.

New Hybrid Cars

Tuesday, October 16th, 2007

If you have been in the market for a new car recently, you may have seen advertisements and articles about the new hybrid cars. These automobiles sound quite attractive on the surface, since they can get up to 20-30 more miles to the gallon than their traditional counterparts. Many of the big auto manufacturers have jumped on the new hybrid car bandwagon, including Toyota, Honda, Lexus and Saturn. But what are these new hybrid cars and what can one of them do for you?

A new hybrid car combines two different power sources that work together to create an engine that is incredibly fuel efficient and much less polluting than the typical gasoline engines of today. A small gasoline engine is found in the new hybrid car that is designed for maximum fuel efficiency. In addition to the gasoline engine, there is an electric motor that is powered by batteries located inside of the car. These batteries are recharged through the running of the car, alleviating the need for an elaborate charging system at home and limited use of the car. The new hybrid cars combine the best of both worlds. You get the long-running, easy maintenance of a traditional gasoline engine. You also get the environmentally friendly, low fuel requirement of an electric motor. The result is a new hybrid car that will run efficiently and cleanly on gas and electricity. This concept has made these new hybrid cars a popular choice for many who are in the market for a new vehicle. However, the technology is still new, and the supply is still greatly limited. Today, there are only a handful of the new hybrid cars on the market. They come in a variety of manufacturer names, and in a choice of styles, including SUV’s and compact sedans. However, it is not easy to find these types of cars at many locations, since the supply was bought up rather quickly after they made their appearance on new car lots. The good news is that plans are in the works for even more car manufacturers to make even more models of these new hybrid cars in the months and years to come.It is possible that the new hybrid cars will gradually take their place as the most popular vehicles on the road. Keep your eyes open for the hybrid cars at the auto dealers in your town or city.
