With so many Lexus LF-Gh photos already floating around, I thought it might be a good idea to focus on the smaller details of the latest Lexus concept, especially when they’re so visually interesting:
The side profile was my favorite angle — by increasing rear headroom & available trunkspace, Lexus has moved to give the next-generation GS a more traditional shape to better compete with the other luxury mid-size sedans, and I’m also excited because it opens up an future opportunity for a more streamlined four-door coupe in the lineup.
I ended up liking the front-end more than expected, as there’s a clear distinction between the upper & lower grille that minimizes the overall size — still, there’s no way this grille makes it to production without a full-on bumper division.
Both the front & rear light assemblies are beautiful to look at, and while the front headlights are much too delicate to make it to production, the rear lights could be ready to go with only minor modifications.
The one area I wasn’t crazy about was the rear design — it could have been the lack of badges and the minimalist integrated exhausts, but I found there just wasn’t enough to look at. However, I did like that the front grille design is mimicked in the rear sheet metal, it made for a nice unified touch.
Just as the third generation GS introduced the L-Finesse seen through the current lineup, the LF-Gh represents the future design language of Lexus — and going by the many lines & creases & details, there’s going to be plenty for the designers to work with.
