2010 Lexus LS 460, LS 600hL & LS SZ Revealed!

A brochure for the 2010 Lexus LS has leaked, and there are now images of the LS 460, the LS Hybrid, and the new LS “Version SZ”—let’s start with the hybrid:

So it turns out the image from last week was indeed correct, and the LS 600hL will be sporting a new, HS-styled grille, as well as:

  • Redesigned front bumper, fog lamps and headlights
  • Turn-signal integrated into the rearview mirrors
  • New wheel design
  • Redesigned rear bumper, exhaust diffusers and tail lights

The brochure also includes an image of the LS interior, which reveals a beautifully redesigned instrument cluster and a new Night Vision system:

The LS also sees a minor refresh of the front & back ends of the car, with new headlights, tail lights, new front & rear bumpers, new wheels, and the now-standard Lexus rearview mirrors.

The biggest new of the day is the verification of a performance variant of the LS called “Version SZ”. From these photos, it looks like a new grille, new front & rear bumpers, new side steps, and some exclusive wheels. Nothing on the interior, save that there will be paddle-shifts in this “LS-Sport”.

Here’s the full brochure, enlarged and sharpened—there’s also mention of the new L-Select customization program that’s launching in Japan and full price breakdowns. More on both of those things later:

  1. The low line HS grille makes it look like us '08 and '09 600h owners paid extra money for an optional grille that doesn't look like it was stolen from the Camry. I like the taillights though. I wonder if they can be retrofitted?
  2. The NEw LS Lexus is really amazing , i always prefer Lexus instead of Mercedes because the Lexus got more option, high quality, better services, and ofcourse much cheaper prices. Good luck guys
  3. emptystreet or whatever... are you kidding? You are comparing a mediocre Hyundai to LEXUS...my friend, stop acting as another member of VANK and go to sleep little flower.
  4. I remember closing this thread months ago -- oh well, it's locked again.
