Lexus LF-Gh Equipped with Night Vision?


TLE reader Vogel spotted something interesting in one of the Lexus LF-Gh interior photos — it looks like the concept might just be equipped with Night Vision. Here’s the button in question, highlighted in red:

Not much to look at, but here it is zoomed up:

Compare it with this Night Vision button from a BMW:

This wouldn’t be the first time a Lexus has been equipped with night-vision — in fact, the 2002 LX 470 was the first production vehicle to have Night Vision equipped, and the current JDM edition of the LS is also available with the feature. Nevertheless, it brings up a good point — there’s still plenty more LF-Gh details left to be revealed.

    I wonder if the leather on top of the dash is exclusive to the hybrid GS…

    I love how the new Lexus interiors have a parallel design but don’t feel like they’re simply a combination of parts-bin stuff like the previous generation models. Ultimately, it’s pretty cool how you can recognize the evolution.

    P.S.: Lexus has got to be more ambitious and start offering more features! Is Lexus that scared of offering stop-and-go adaptive cruise control in the US?! There will always be idiotic drivers, but should everyone suffer with them?!

    I too noticed that switch, but the display may be in the nav screen & not in the instrument cluster like in the LSh. From the top image it looks like the GS will continue with the regular Optitron & not the new TFT dials.

    Didn’t realise you were too lazy to push the brake pedal, WoL. Ha, Ha.
    What I would like Lexus to offer at least in the LS is an inside RVM tied to the memory function, so I wouldn’t have to painstakingly readjust it after someone has used my car (I like my mirror positions to be millimeter perfect). The Merc W140 & C215 CL coupe had it, but discontinued now.

    Check it out, it also has paddles behind the steering!

    Usually a concept car is not this complete especially the interior. It is a production shown as a concept by some tweaks.

    Rush hour, man!

    And that’s funny… my 1998 LS memory seating adjusts the mirrors and even the height of the seatbelt hinges! I’m assuming you mean the inside rear-view mirrors? Yeah, that certainly would be useful!

    That’s good logic — otherwise it’s up on the windshield. :-)

    Agreed — the interior looks well-polished.

    I think the Lexus adaptive cruise control is better — if the car stopped
    completely in cruise control, why even bother paying attention to what’s
    actually happening outside the car?

    Actually I used to own a 2006 Lexus LS430 Ultra and I had Adaptive cruise which stopped when someone got in my way and then started up again once it was clear. Where have u been o_0????

    aha Honestly, living here in Southern California, stop-and-go adaptive cruise control would save so much trouble! The freeways are always jammed! And at night, the headache of getting myself into such mess makes me feel suicidal.

    Disneyland is only a few minutes away, but that last bit of I-5 N is ALWAYS bumper-to-bumper unless I leave Disneyland past midnight.

    Without a doubt, the Lexus adaptive cruise control is the smoothest!

    Does it bring you to a full and complete stop? The current ones don’t operate at speeds below 25mph. Sounds like the old laser adaptive cruise control was more convenient than the current radar ones!

    Interior doesn’t look bad, but it definitely looks to swarthy or sharp to be a Lexus interiors.. Which are usually soft and fluidic..

    Yes, I meant the INSIDE rear view mirror. My GS300 has the seat,steering & both ouside mirrors set into the memory, but only the LS adds the seat belt height, so why not add the inside mirror too? its a real btch to readjust…

    Didn’t the LX470 have the night vision display on the windscreen?

    Maybe you are referring to the Pre-collision system operating, because the current system in the LS doesn’t bring the car to a complete stop, it only applies partial brake pressure while the driver has to squeeze the brake pedal fully.

    Yep, and I don’t have it in my 2003 LX 470. What is funny is that there’s still a little place in my front bumper for the Night Vision sensor, and Longo Lexus asked the person who hit my car to fix it!

    It sure is… although I wouldn’t mind readjusting it if Lexus covered it with leather or something :P

    Funny you should mention that, the Porsche Panamera can be fitted with a leather trimmed & color matched inside mirror…now that’s customisation!
