Lexus Accidentally Revealed the LF-SA Concept

We do not know whether Lexus was intended to do this, but anyway the first photo of the LF-SA concept car was leaked on the internet today (Lexus Europe posted this photo on its Twitter account earlier today, then quickly removed it after a short time).


The LF-SA concept is scheduled to be announced in next month’s Geneva motor show, and depicts a future Lexus production model which is reportedly positioned below the current CT200h hybrid hatchback. From the above teaser photo we have the below two conclusions:

1. Lexus family spindle grille
2. LED headlights with signature L-shaped daytime running light

Our Lexus insider told us the production version of the LF-SA conce...

Toyota Crown + 2.0 turbo engine and 8AT

Today, the first China-spec Toyota Crown has rolled off the production line. The Crown sold in China is based on the Toyota Crown Majesta, which is sold in Japan. Compared to the Crown Majesta, the China-spec Crown has added another 2.95-in to the wheelbase, makes it to be 115.2 inches.


One big news to the Crown: besides the current engine option (the 2.5L V6, with 6AT), Toyota is going to introducing the 2.0L turbo 4-cylinder (which is currently used on the 2015 Lexus NX200t), and mates it to the Aisin-sourced 8-speed automatic transmission.

This marks the first time that the 8AR-FTS 2...

2015 Lexus RC and NX Got Excellent Result in IIHS Crash Tests

2015 Lexus RC & NX: IIHS Crash Test

If you’ve paid attention to the IIHS crash test data (which you can find in the “Technical Measurements” tab, under each model’s test category, on the IIHS official webpage), then you may have an impression that, compared to its German luxury car competitors, Lexus usually has inferior crash test results.
