The rear looks too much like a Sonata imo.








The Hyundai Genesis R spec really looks great for the money and will steal potential sales of this 4GS. Maybe an F sport model will change things?? Who knows..

Man they even did away with the roofline profile.... Doesn't look terrible to me (except for the grille), but it's definitely a giant step in the wrong design direction.

The concept that I saw @ the NYIAS looked pretty hot minus the grill. Lexus should of kept the concept design and just clean up the grill

Ok picture the car with bigger wheels, an all black grill, and lower ride height. Then its not bad at all. This is bad cuz its the base AWD model. You guys just have to picture it in the top end RWD form.

Gross. The 2000-2005 GS's were the best looking ones. Went downhill after that.

Looks too much like the Sonata? They look damn near identical!

pictures are much better, car still ugly. I had the last generation gs430, thought that was ugly too but still a nice car. I liked the ass on that car, the face not so much.

The official pics make it look a bit better. Still looks like a big Suzuki.

I like the look of it better than the E-class

Here's what i'd take

1) 535i 2) M37 3) new GS350 4) new A6 5) E350 (90 degree V6 = fail)

Looks OK to me in that second set of pics. I personally am not a fan, looks generic.

And in the first set of pics ... I thought that was a Chevy logo on the rear end one at first.

The interior is pretty nice. The outside looks like a copy of the new 5, which looks like something the Koreans would have built.

very sexy interior, though I wont be trading in my gs for this. Unless they coupled this with a turbo 6 cylinder or something. Any info on the engine?

Same V6 as the 3gs GS350 with no power increase. It also has a 6 speed auto tranny.

A little odd... I had a gs350 with that same motor and it was a great car although a little on the torqueless side for my taste. I wish they had updated the motor and made it more on the form of the N55, it seems that Lexus prefers NA motors though.

We may be surprised by this car, it certainly sounds good -
