A couple of days ago a leaked JDM (Japanese Domestic Market) brochure prematurely previewed the facelifted Lexus LS4560 and LS600h. Now, it seems that the 2010 Lexus LS460 and LS600h will be joining the LF-Ch premium compact hatchback at the 2009 edition of the Frankfurt Auto Show. The exterior of the Lexus LS has been improved with a couple of features including fresh alloy wheel designs, restyled front and wheel bumpers, new mirror housings with integrated turning signals, upgraded headlights, a new front grille and restyled taillights.
To highlight the most important new features of the 2010 Lexus LS, I can tell you that you will see suspension modifications, interior design revisions and updated standard equipment.
The Japanese automaker Lexus clearly wanted to separate the gasoline LS460 from the hybrid LS600h. They have managed to do this by different interior and exterior styling lines and patterns, including unique bumper treatments and a unique grille. Also, the Lexus Hybrid Drive system has received numerous enhancements and improved packaging.
The new Lexus LS looks very good. Sure, it is not a huge improvement in comparison to the 2009 model, but you have to acknowledge that it is only a facelift, and not a new generation. Still, the car is improved, as every facelift should be improved. We will just have to wait for more information regarding the engine range and some interior photos. Also, the pricing level is important, but it should not be significantly different from the price range of the 2009 Lexus LS .
Some of you might comment that the car does not look all that good from this picture. This is true, but the reason is obvious from my opinion. Lexus have made a mistake by presenting the 2010 Lexus LS painted in white. It is clear that no limousine looks good in white. The color that is representative for Lexus limousines is black, and I can not imagine why they did not show us the 2010 Lexus LS in black.
