This seems to be more of a trend now letting journalists drive the car before it's officially revealed. Design won't be as good as german rivals but I'm still interested to see how it works out. IS-F wasn't a million miles away from rivals and it was Lexus's first attempt so the next one may be very interesting.
In terms desgin I think what Lexus need to do is create a bigger difference in styling between Toyota. A quick glance at those spypics may lead someone to believe its a Toyota. It needs to have more distinct body lines like C-class/3 Series. Also, the hood looks very bulbous. Pedestrian safety laws no doubt have an effect on design but still. Speedo display and temp controls are nice features, but overall I don't think interior will be anywhere near rivals.
