Lexus Tokyo Motor Show

The Japanese domestic market will get its first look at the face-lifted version of the current-generation Lexus GS midsize sedan. Now on its fourth iteration, the GS (also known as the Toyota Aristo in Japan) gets a more powerful presence with an updated front bumper, combination lamps, and other bits. The three-LED-bulb headlamp cluster now gets an adaptive high-beam system that adjusts to avoid blinding oncoming traffic. The look is finished off by the redesigned three-dimensional spindle grille.

The smooth, sporty and efficient 3.5-liter V6 engine reinforces the looks. The mill now utilizes the direct-injection four-stroke technology and the Atkinson’s cycle to help give the powerplant optimum performance and superior fuel economy at the same time.

For those that find the GS just a tad too mainstream, its GS F sibling might just be the ticket. The F Sport version gets a meaner-looking spindle grille and larger air intakes. Of course, the real treat that this car offers is the 5.0-liter V8 motor. This power unit also employs the Atkinson’s cycle to give it hybrid-like efficiency, especially during the daily grind. It is mated to an eight-speed Sport Direct Shift transmission.

Besides the GS twins, the Lexus stand will likewise highlight the all-new RX premium crossover. There will also be a concept car that is believed to be a preview of the next-generation LS full-size sedan. Of course, the only way to confirm this is to stay tuned to this website as we bring you the latest from the Tokyo Motor Show.
