I can certainly see some Lexus cues with the hybrid door badging and the LS rear lights, but obviously this is an extremely well-camouflaged vehicle.

Update: TPP commenter Eddie also brings up the obviously Lexus side mirrors:

Another telling tale, the front headlights:

  1. I assume it’s the HS. Just look at the mirror design on the first picture and you will see that it is identical to the IS, ES, and LS’s mirrors.

    What do you think?

  2. I think it’s safe to say this is the HS 250h, here’s a mirror design comparison between the IS and the spy shot:

    Also, the front headlights give it away.

  3. ya it definitely is an HS.i notice the taillights look like an IS. What I didn’t like is that the headlights look like an Accord gone hybrid.But I’m just glad it’s not Prius like.
    But this might be an IS hybrid.The comparisons favor it.But then again, I’m just 15 so I dunno lol.

  4. I think it looks like it is going to be about the same size as the european avensis. I think all Lexus hybrids will have LED headlamps. Overall I will take this any day over a prius

  5. its for sure not a rebadged prius so thats a good thing

  6. I guess…sleek headlights, okay (very off-balance looking) wing mirrors…

    But its proportions are hideous, and the shape of the windows on those rear doors look very…Toyota-ish - Camry-ish.
    I really really hope that it’s the camo that’s throwing me off - esp. the high hood.

  7. It’s pretty heavily camo’d, I’m surprised they revealed as much as they did. The headlights are a dead giveaway that it’s a Lexus.

  8. Absolutely agree, and I think that will be a common decision. I don’t know if it’s a good thing, but this is going to be a brand defining car.

  9. Good thought on the Avensis, and if we were to mix that with the next-gen. Camry and the current corolla, …and take a look at those tiny wheels! …this is a little too much Toyota D:

    Although the lights look very sophisticated - not like those on the pig-snouted Toyotas.

  10. oh ya, agreed.if they made this a Prius in a tuxedo, i don’t know what i’d do.

  11. I see a lot of Acura in the front and Honda in the rear.

  12. Disappointing design! Looks like your typical cheap economy sedan. Whats with the stupid front quarter glass? A feature seen usually in minivans. They’ve fitted this to the new RX also. Lexus designs are rapidly going down the toilet.First the LX,then the RX and now this.

  13. I don’t know how much you can take from this spy shot, it’s been masked quite well. But then, if you didn’t like the new RX or LX, it’s hard to say how much the HS will appeal.

    Did you like the LS design?

  14. lol krew i love how you diss people in such a polite way =D

  15. The LS design is both elegant& unique among its rivals. Did you know that the LS has received a few awards in Europe just for its styling(Even BMW took ideas from the LS for the new 7-series). For me its the 2nd best looking current Lexus,the 1st being the GS(Jaguar’s source of inspiration for the XF sedan). Just hope Lexus doesn’t screw the next gen LS like the did with the ugly LS430!

  16. Oh boy…did you just call the LS430 ugly? It might be my favorite Lexus of all time!
