Lexus 460 2017 model year will appear in Russia this yearOleg Skrinnik
The history of the GX model from Lexus dates back to 2002. At that time, the first generation of cars, presented as a mid-size SUV, received a numerical designation "470" for the title.
And next year, Japanese developers plan to send an upgraded version of the Lexus GX 460 to world markets. With this name, an SUV of Japanese origin was first shown in 2009.
In terms of exterior, the new SUV has received some updates, and it is not much different from the current version. It must be said that the body of the SUV now weighs significantly less, due to the use of light, but at the same time very durable materials.
So, the appearance reflects the idea of L-finesse. Corporate design combines solid contradictions: a refined elegant chic and an aggressive brutal king of off-road. New as well as the previous version of the model was built on the basis of the Prado 150.The main feature of the body is its frame structure.
The front area, in accordance with today's style of the company, is designed in the form of an hourglass. The upper area of the so-called "clock" captured facing grille with chrome trim. Here, updates have affected the headlights, which are available with LED-backlit.
The lighting of the front area is in perfect harmony with the overall design of the front end. Also, LED-technology shines perfectly, which will allow the driver to feel confident even at night.
The lower part of the "hourglass" is given a massive air intake, which is covered with the original plastic mesh. The built-in sills are a single hilly line from the front wing to the rear body undershape, separated by wheel arches.
The SUV feed still looks like a Prado. Designers decided not to touch the transparent ceiling lamps of the taillights, leaving them without any changes. Insiders managed to learn that the company, making this novelty, focused on the inconspicuous details of the case in the current generation, trying to emphasize them as much as possible.
According to the pictures presented on the network, we can immediately say that the interior of this car was copied from the LX 570. The interior decoration is striking in its luxury: there are wooden decorative elements, there is leather trim.
Noticeable transformations in the instrument panel, as well as its modified in view of the fact that it will provide pleasant assistance during travel. The number of keys and buttons on the dashboard, door card, center console, steering wheel make the interior of the model look like the cabin of a helicopter or airplane.
It is known that the buyer will be met inside by a 330-cotton multimedia center “Mark Levinzon” with 3D sound technology and nine speakers. The thin 8.5-inch screen extends from the torpedo. As an option, high-quality displays are installed for passengers in the back row. The seven-inch screens are mounted in the headrests of the front seats.
The front dashboard features a bunk construction. The lower and upper segments are divided among themselves by a horizontally located beam, in which the clock face and ventilation deflectors are located.
