New Lexus GSIn the end of April on a showroom in New York the Japanese company will present the concept car of a business class which, presumably, by September will be already shown as the serial car, and in sale will arrive in the beginning of 2012. As a matter of fact, we see before ourselves new generation of sedan GS. It is necessary to notice that present generation inertly is on sale in Europe and in Russia, and one of the reasons is that it's major competitors - BMW, Mercedes and Audi - went out novelties, and Lexus continues to produce a model of the sample 2005.

How novelty will beat competitors?
By the size of the body is not winning. Length of the shown prototype — 4 890 mm, width — 1 870 mm, and height — 1 450 mm. That is its dimensions are very close to the basic contenders. To involve clients is planned by hybrid motors. Now at a business sedan only one such version — 450h, having 3,5-liter petrol six and the electromotor. At a novelty the scale will extend. First of all it's necessary to expect less powerful and more accessible hybrid versions.

Well and, at last, changes in appearance are very considerable. The present reserved stylistics having the firm name L-finesse, will give way to more aggressive design. Like competitors Japanese designers have decided to think up such radiator enclosure which can not be confused with any other. In BMW - two nostrils, the Audi - a big trapeze, the Mercedes - chrome shield with horizontal bars, while the Lexus is now a polygon, compressed on the sides.
