This could be one of the worst cases of badge engineering.

I'd like a teaser pic of the interior; how it has been "lexus-ed" up.

It maybe business opportunity for many part retailer... Remember the 1st and 2nd Gen RX, where most Harrier owners willingly paid thou$and$ to have theirs Lexus-ified?

Probably will be based on the top spec Alphard.

If just change the badge then its very fake.

But maybe chassis engine gear box same.

Modifying on suspension and
adding extra leathers and
better sound proofing
Still can close 1 eye accept

Spring
I guessing this car will have a list price of at least $300k?
Bearing in mind RX350L close to that price already. I suppose it will be positioned above RX350L as it’s a luxurious MPV afterall?

The sole engine for this lame Lexus van is the same 3.5L V6 and 6AT as used in the Alphard high spec models.

 

Most equipment will be the same too. Toyota really thinks the Lexus badge can sell by itself. Hence they don't even bother to try hard...

 

Just get the Alphard 3.5L V6 model if you want this lame Lexus

and i thought that Lexus and Toyota are now distinct cars in their own right, no longer just rebadging like the Harrier/RX and Altezza/IS, Windom/ES or Aristo/GS.

 

gonna see more "fakers" soon.

If re-badge can sell 10,000 more units in China at double the margin... why not

I think it is common. Heard the same for a continental car from somewhere. 

 

"Audi costs more, and is supposedly the more luxurious car belong to the same manufacturer, share platforms, systems, engines and in most regards are almost identical (Tuareg - Q7, A3 - Polo, etc).

better finish on the Audi

 

2000 VW Passat Wagon nearly the same under the hood as the 1999 Audi A6 Avant Quattro that replaced it.  AWD Passat with Tiptronic instead of front wheel drive with manual 5-speed transmission, it would be almost exactly the same.  strip an old Passat, notice build quality in the B5/C5 generation and don’t see any differences."

Maybe the re-badging is just to meet specific market (as in country or region) demands and not for global sales? And the volume is small and cannot justify an investment in a whole new model?

I suspect this abomination is for China, where perhaps there's a need for a super luxurious people carrier.

Really degrading the lexus brand.

 

The 2 individual full recline buckets would be ideal in SG. Its a shame normal Alphards and Vellfire doesn't come with this option

 

 

At least no one will try to pester u to give them a ride for 'you got a MPV mah' 

 

It is gd that Toyota values privacy for MPV owners


Does it comes with a driver?  [laugh]

The next PHV favorite car..

 

But with only 2 rear seats, it is difficult to do Grabshare ley
