2016 Lexus LX facelift leaked again, including interior


What is allegedly the 2016 Lexus LX facelift has been leaked again, this time more comprehensively, by Baniyas Cars. The posher relative of the Toyota Land Cruiser (whose 2016 facelift was allegedly partially leaked recently) gains a prominent spindle grille.

Attached to the grille are revised headlamps with LED DRLs, while the fog lamps sit within a sharp boomerang-shaped housing. At the back are revised tail lamps and a mildly-restyled bumper. Those are new alloys, too.

The interior packs quite a few changes, appearing more upmarket and more up-to-date with current Lexus models. We see slim central air vents separated by an analogue clock, the Lexus Remote Touch Controller, a new steering wheel, a classy-looking central screen and a new gear lever.

This would actually be the third facelift for the third-gen J200 – it was first given a front bumper to mimic a spindle grille in 2010, before getting a proper spindle face in 2012, although the headlamps remained detached from the grille.

The 383 hp/546 Nm 5.7 litre V8, six-speed auto and 4WD with Torsen limited-slip diff are expected to soldier on, but since the Land Cruiser is going to get radar- and camera-based autonomous emergency braking, this one should get it too.

While most dream of the future, Jonathan Tan dreams of the past, although he's never been there. Fantasises much too often about cruising down Treacher Road (Jalan Sultan Ismail) in a Triumph Stag that actually works, and hopes this stint here will snap him back to present reality.

    It looks like Pajero sport, maybe it’s just roofed Hilux. Does it free from takata airbags?

    You will never go wrong with sushi cars. When this comes to Malaysia, nobody will blink an eye Hyundai Santa Fe/Sorento or even Range Rover Evoque. Buy Toyota/Lexus better, good RV.

    This is the Ninja King that rules the Luxury Large SUV market, even in the middle east because even the Germans cannot match its comfort, quietness and most of all, reliability and durability

      1. Lexus interior.

      2. Being rich has to be equally civilised.

      3. Have you ever been to Abu Dhabi?

      Love it when sorhai tai lan ngong kimchi owners own up to say that they are screwed up by their rotten cabbage.

      Just a matter of time before enough is enough, and they come to my yard to be shown the Hilux.

      Do take some suppresent and try not to commit suicide in my yard
