2017 Lexus LS sedan and LC coupe to debut at Tokyo Show in Oct


Lexus has confirmed that the company’s next generation flagship LS sedan will be revealed at the upcoming Tokyo Motor Show in October.

According to a report by Motoring, the luxury limousine will feature the latest version of parent company, Toyota’s autonomous driving technology, as well as a new rear-wheel drive platform.

Like the current Lexus LS, the 2017 model is expected to sport a 5.0-litre V8 petrol engine generating more than 368kW (500PS). A V6 petrol hybrid can also be expected.


Sources close to Lexus have also confirmed the Japanese premium brand has finalised design for the production version of its LF-LC concept coupe (shown here), which is set to debut alongside the LS sedan and built on the same platform.

Inevitably, the production coupe is likely to wear a toned down version of the LF-LC’s award-winning design due to production and cost limitation.

It will feature an uprated version of the sedan’s V8 engine developing around 350kW, while a ‘LC 500h’ will utilise a V8 hybrid churning out more than 405kW.

Both models will hit showrooms in the first half of 2017.
