At least, not from the side. Interesting proportions, and I like the interior

That looks like a very comfortable place to spend time with a seriously sumptuous interior. Not sure about the handlebar type controls or how you would use them whilst driving but I really like the look of that - a lot more than an S Class/7 series.

That bloody grill, turned up to 11...

Interior looks nice.

The grille turned up to 11 works for me; it's the 8/10 versions on facelifted models that really jars.

First Lexus I've seen where the spindle grille really works. Makes the 7 series and S Class look very dated.

Nope, not feeling that at all. What's with those rotary adjusters sticking out like Shrek's ears? Not seen that since the 80s.

Nice inside, not a fan of the grille - looks like it's trying too hard to have a identity, which is, alas, a Lexus trait at the moment.

That interior is impressive and does make its rivals look clumsy and dated. The details around the grill and lights I'm less keen on but they profile is spot on.

I like some of it, particularly the side view and low bonnet line, but some of the details are way too fussy and ruin it for me.  Likewise the interior, a lot of it looks great, but those pods look awful / cheap.

Wow, I really like that, so much better looking for both the exterior and interior than any S Class, 7 Series or A8.

Nice side profile (and no privacy glass, well done Lexus) and an OK back end - wanky exhausts aside. And the headlights are cleaner and less fussy.  

But I still really struggle with the front grille. It looks to much like a snow plough. A bar across it that continued the bumper would be a great improvement and a slightly smaller lower section might help too.  

The interior design might be good, but the brown is a revolting colour.

I know taste is a diverse thing, but unless your a business mogul who owns a Japanese vending company that markets used school girls knickers (which I am led to relieve is a genuine business in The Land of the Rising Sun) then I've no idea why that would appeal - there are no angles from which it doesn't look like a complete and utter howler.

The grille looks like an iPad image that someone has 'pinched' together as a joke.  And it manages something unusual as a design, in that I like it less every time I look at it.

As regards damned if you do, I am reminded of The Fast Show's Colin Hunt!

I love it, inside and out, although the front 3/4 posted by racing does have an unfortunate hint of Panamera about it, maybe that will be less apparent in the metal.

Im a big fan of Lexus' current design language as a whole, if buying on looks and interiors only Id have the IS, LS, NX and stunning LC (or whatever the super coupe is called) over the german equivalents. Even with the less successfully styled GS and RX I cant think of germans I prefer, although I do prefer the XF and FPace. Unfortunately for Lexus, Im not in their prospective buyers demographic, the only model which could feasibly be an option is the CT, which is amazingly ugly for such a bland car, and apparently not to be replaced.

An element of good car design should be that there is a suggestion of movement in the lines, even when stationary, and I think this has it in spades. A front plate will tone down the grille somewhat. The profile is beautiful.

The profile is very nice, I think the grill will look a bit less monstrous with a UK plate over the middle of it. With the S class and 7 series being nothing special in terms of their design this does seem more unique and attractive.

Same here - I like most of the interior - the cow horn controls either side of the binnacle hood are a miss for me though - I could perhaps live with the wheels - but with a Lexus you just know as soon as you see the front it's going to be hideous!

That is one ugly car, inside and out. Those knobs on the instrument binnacle remind me of Citroen's wacky past. The Visa had odd controls in it from memory, but I really don't comprehend why stuff has to be reinvented all the time when the current way of doing whatever those knobs do works just fine.

The only good thing I can say about this car is that it's not quite as ugly as it's retarded cousin the Mirai!

That's clever, but just semantics.  It feels (to me) like it is contriving to have a personality rather than actually having one, hence my Colin Hunt reference.

Absolutely not.  But the XJ shows, to my eyes at least, that you can look suitably full of gravitas without being dull or gauche.

That probably just confirms that not everybody likes the same thing. Lexus are certainly more appealing when they aren't a Mercedes parody.

Those two sentences aren't entirely coherent.  They're more appealing to some when they aren't cribbing Mercedes of old, I'm sure.  But not everyone will feel that way.

I wasn't grabbed by them then or now, but I'm glad they exist as an alternative.  It's just that their current crop is ruled out (for me) on aesthetic grounds alone.

Cars don't have personality when you really break it down. Machines can not possess human attributes.

I'm with Twelfth on this: Lexus are trying too hard. If they toned it down by about 20%, they'd have some cracking looking stuff. As it is, they have half decent shapes ruined by over-fussy details.

I don't, but they are great at being a large luxurious comfortable saloon that would be great to do long journeys in and I think I'm alone in this, but I like that they're relatively discreet and could be mistaken for something lower down the range.

They are trying hard as they want a strong corporate look or their own. This won't be done with a few subtle design features.

The SUVs (NX and RX) have clearly set this out. This LH500 is "toned down by 20%" compared to them.

Seriously?



Only if all you're interested in is impressing the neighbours, colleagues, strangers etc.  

As long as it offers something more that you would benefit from e.g. space, comfort, toys, quality, then there is enough to justify the upgrade or the opposite if you don't want/need something bigger.  With the new 5 in its early days, a 7 would cost less per month on a pcp deal, with a better spec.

Not to mine. I find it a very low point in Jaguar design. The front and back are ugly and the middle simply bland. And on anything other than vast rims, it tends to look underwheeled.

I quite like the XJ - it looks best in darker colours to hide the black C pillar treatment though.

Agreed.  It's ironic that its least successful design element is its most deliberate.
