Taiwan tabloid Apple Daily has published a previously-unseen cutaway image of the next-generation Lexus IS:
Most visible in the image is the front & rear suspension, however it’s possible to see some details of the IS front-end design — let’s zoom in a bit:
There are three elements that jump out at me:
- The front grille looks near-identical to the LF-CC design.
- It doesn’t appear the IS has a bumper dividing the upper & lower grille — or at least not in the same position as the camouflaged mules seen late last year.
- The headlight and bumper design looks VERY muscular.
There’s even better news — this should be our final sneak peek at the next-generation IS sedan, as the Lexus UK blog has announced that photos will be released tomorrow afternoon.
