Is that second screen infront of the passenger ONLY for displaying that swoopy pattern? Because that is really dumb. Or it more likely is just a backlit pattern, but still, seems annoying for long journeys to have that shining at you.

I don't drive, I fly.
I am annoyed by the completely covered engine, but I am not surprised.
I bet the usual Lexus buyer doesn't even check oil levels, so there is no point in having anything accessible.

There are access points to check oil. Its also really good for aero.

Knobs above the wheel look like an afterthought.

They've been using that same solution since the LF-A. Although it looks like as if they took inspiration from some old Citro?n, which it's not something bad.

My question is why put the Snow knob in such a prominent place seeing as how it won't be used for about 75% of the year.

I'd rather an S class....oh what the hell I'd take any of the big luxobarges.

I don't know if I'm just getting accustomed to the predator face, but it's looking better and better with each new model.


Except the SUV's, it's still hideous as hell on those.

I drove all the big luxobarges (LS-L, S-Class LWB, 7er L, A8L, XJL) back to back a few years ago (2014 model year) and the LS was easily the worst one. The biggest thing that killed it for me was the UX. Between the UI on the screens, the infotainment controls and the driver controls, it was just awful. Didn't improve much in the 2016 RX I drove a few months ago, so I'm not holding my breath for this one either.

Nope..exterior looks strange, different for the sake of being different minus the elegance.
Interior, just no.
S-Class, A8, 7 Series of even better a Panamera.
