By “DIRECT4” that freely controls the driving force of the four wheels. The design that reminds us of the dynamic driving that the driving force distribution changes linearly is adopted. The inflection of the door changes from the front tire to the rear tire without stagnation. And the area around the tire A glossy surface molding with an overhanging flare shape has been applied.
At the rear, a clean and simple horizontal design is combined with a molding that emphasizes the overhanging tires to express a powerful stance that supports torque driving force. In addition, the new LEXUS logo is placed on the thin rear combination lamp with a single horizontal character to create a design that symbolizes the next-generation LEXUS along with the front.

The E-Latch system of the Japanese cars makes opening and closing doors smoother and safer. When boarding, the retractable door handle automatically slides from the vehicle surface when the occupant holding the key approaches. The door can unlock and open smoothly by touching the sensor inside the handle. When getting off, the door can be opened by pressing the door open switch inside the vehicle. The sensor mounted on the Japanese vehicle monitors the surrounding conditions and warns the occupants when it detects an approaching vehicle or bicycle. It also contributes to reducing accidents when getting off.
