No according to the catalogue it has normal coil suspension and thus no adjustable ride height.Does this mean it'll be available outside Japan? And this Century has to have air suspension, right?
In press releases of LF-30 and LFZ they talk a lot about their future interior going "fully sustainable". Minimalist interior with "vegan leather" and "recycled plastic" seems to be the new trend and Lexus is embracing it. Smart excuses to cut costs and be politically correct.I think people can make the case that wood is "out" but I also think that mostly applies to red/brown tones of wood with high gloss finishes. Darker stain or lighter stain, and open pore and matte woods are very in, and Lexus has kiriko glass on the LS, plus there are metal options as well. I agree with you that from the top down, I see less wood or trim in all Toyota/Lexus models. New TX barely has any. 2GX had a lot of wood trim, 3GX has none but just nondescript "trim" and very little of it on the center console. For LX, LS, ES and RX, Lexus went from full wood rim/leather steering wheels to full leather with awkward small wood inserts -- I think this looks terrible and is an awful implementation.
The current Century sedan already makes over 400hp (specifically 425hp). The 2nd gen Century brought an air suspension. The formula is already there. The execution though…With the Century there is no struggle: 400hp with EV power is more than a Century could ever need on Japanese roads except for bragging rights
For people who buy chauffeur-driven limousines, pure power figure is actually not a concern. This is different from the more individually-driven sedans like LS. Instead, having lots of power is just a nice side effect of the actual desired characteristics of a limousine: to accelerate effortlessly with minimum amount of noise and vibration. It just happens that engines with lots of cylinders and low-end torque naturally meet this requirement. So it's no wonder Rolls-Royce rarely advertised its power figures before they were taken over by the spreadsheet maximizers at BMW.Century is very JDM-specific and while it may compete with Cullinan or Bentayga at home, the Century wouldn't hold up against those two in other markets with higher speed limits, lower quality roads and greater desire for power.
