The ES is definitely the better of the two. The only GS worth having is the GSF otherwise there is nothing that the GS does that the ES doesn't do as well. Both are similar in size and both are luxury cruisers.

The GX on the other hand is an archaic tractor that is laughably terrible when compared to the Mercedes GLS, Audi Q7, and the coming BMW X7 (I'm assuming). The 3 row RX is very likely a stopgap until something worthy of mention can be produced.

Until then, enjoy that fire-sale discounts on the GX and GS if they are your cup of tea. For me, they both cannot die quickly enough.

Finally revealed. Whilst the Lexus grille is still there, and generally still identifaiible as a Lexus CUV; it also softens a lot of those usual edges and creases, and does away with surprisingly few details, and kind of takes the lexus design to a next, kind of more calm and mature level. IMO a nicely progressed design theme.

The concpet car obviously looks RWD based, there is no question about that, now it will be interesting what of this concept will make it to a production car (will this be the next NW or RX? Or will it sit above the RX, where clearly there would be room for a more expensive, luxurious CUV)

The side view could EASILY be mistaken for a current Mazda product. Handsome, yes, but most of what Toyota did was remove the ugly baked into the current product. That's progress I guess.

Nice, but obviously a CUV, and not a SUV, LX will remain the better off-road car. On the other hand what Germans make are also CUVs, with the exception of the G Wagon that was updated to be as good as an LX that is 10 years old.

Looking good, is this previewing anything or will it be a new model? Feels like a RX in profile

Nice proportions and detailing overall. Looks too concepty to really hold much weight though...

That long hood almost gives it RWD proportions. Interesting.
