Enhancing the comfort and handling even further is an air suspension that features Adaptive Variable Suspension and revised stabilizers and suspension bounds stoppers. This suspension system is tuned to offer better ride comfort on the city streets but adapts and controls roll when the steering wheel is turned.

The 2021 LS also comes with Access Mode Control which raises the vehicle when stopped to allow for easier ingress and egress.
