Toyota's luxury brand Lexus has announced that the fifth-generation LS luxury sedan will make its world debut at the 2017 North American International Auto Show in January.
The carmaker said, "The introduction of the LS 400 in 1989 in Detroit made automotive history. Not only did the vehicle make its mark by offering the drive performance, quietness, and luxury that consumers expected from a premium vehicle, its unveiling heralded the birth of the Lexus brand."
The new luxury sedan will be based on Lexus's new GA-L architecture, which is shared with the LC 500 sports coupe. From the teased image it is clear that it will get the marque's signature spindle grille.
Lexus claims that it will also get a sporty design and even though it's a sedan, it will look like a coupe with a spacious cabin. The model will feature all the latest tech and comfort which the customers expect from a high-end luxury car.
We can expect the fifth-generation LS sedan to get a V8 motor coupled with electric motors. The Japanese manufacturer may also opt for a zero-emissions hydrogen variant.
