I have to agree with rayaans that this is the same as production. In addition to the slightly different picture angle, the seemingly taller roof height can be attributable to the thick camo cladding that wraps above the silver roof rails giving it the extra 1.5-2 inches. The only piece that still bothers me is the roof spoiler is higher on the prototype than the production version which may be due to the camera angle...Nah I call bullshit on this and here are my reasons:
1 - the hood isn't longer. It's exactly the same size. The prototype is at a marginally different angle which makes it look like that. Want proof? Just look at the front grill, you can see more grill on the prototype pic.
2 - the rear end has exactly the same slope. Once again it's due to the angle that it looks different.
3 - the roof isn't higher. Once again, due to the angle of the pic. Want more proof? Look at the prototype pic and you'll see the centre of the hood, yet in the press release pic you'll just see the crease in the hood.
Good remark... Repeatedly received confirmation that no plug-in hybrid is in the plannings, but this detail could perhaps show the opposite??? Or perhaps someone can find pics showing that all Toyota/Lexus 'camouflage pajamas' have a flap for tank filling on both sides?Since it has such a flap on either side
To be ignored like that, IMO, is not acceptable. You deserve to be treated with more respect than that. I can't remember the last time I was ignored after E-mailing an auto manufacturer....even if they did not (yet) have the answer to what I was asking.Have emailed Lexus about third row seating with no response.
I agree. An answer should always be given, even if it is 'sorry, we can't give any comments on future product releases'To be ignored like that, IMO, is not acceptable.
