smaller but just as luxurious and reliable as LS430

The Right Car for Me | TrueDelta

Member5287

I need to shrink my Lexus LS430...by about a foot in length and about 3 to 6 inches on the width. I love everything about the car, except that it doesn't fit into the garage of my new home. It's an old house and parking outside isn't an option. Looking for something just as plush as the LS430 with all the creature comforts. Is there such a thing? Only other cars I've found just as nice are just as large (S-class, Panamera, XJ, 750) but nowhere as reliable. Am I missing something? Perhaps something a little smaller? I'm ok with a two-seater, but prefer the luxury over the speed.

Priorities: Quietness / Reliability & durability / Materials & workmanship / Interior styling / Ride smoothness

Preferred Bodystyle(s): Wagon / Hatch / Sedan / Coupe

Car Needs: Daily commuter / Long trips

Need minimum of 2 seats

Will consider both new and used cars
Maximum mileage: 100000
Maximum age: 10 years

Maximum price: US $ 35000

Finding something shorter is possible, but narrower than your LS430 is going to be tough! It is already a narrow 72.0" and most upscale compacts are wider than that now...

With that said, I'd look at the previous generation Lexus IS250/IS350 (2012 and older) which is 17" shorter than your LS430 and about 1" narrower. The other possibility that I came up with is the 2009-2014 Acura TSX. It is 11.8" shorter (but 0.4" wider) than the LS430.

As Jason notes, it's going to be hard to find a narrower but still luxurious car.

An Infiniti G35 / G37 would be 2-3 inches narrower, depending on generation. But it won't ride as plushy as your LS.
