yeah it does resemble the Camry,especially from the rear! Lexus is Toyota's luxury marquee, remember?? So u have to expect the styling of Lexus to be similar to the Toyotas..

Lexus makes some of the most amazing car's in the world, yet it is one of the most under estimated car company's in the world.

The whole planet seems to be just obsessed with Audi's, BMW'S and Merc's, altough i agree this is also partly due to the fact that lexus is not available in as many countries as the Audi's, merc's n BMW's are.

But the technology used by lexus cars is simply amazing and one of the most advanced till date and yes, not to mention they were the first to invent the self-parking thingy.

Beautiful car! I am a German car fan, but would choose the LS over the car parked right behind it. For sheer comfort, there are very few luxo-barges that can beat it.

Another reason: it is not made by the white man....

I dont think the car will ever be priced at 60 65. the cls 350 is a also a $70,000 dollar car. over here its 90! never look at $ prices for cars and compare them. If anything look at prices. A range rover in america is about 60-65k. in england its 60-65k too, bu in pounds. itsthe same with most cars. porsches, benzes, beemers etc.
Also when the guy at the pump doesn't know you he quotes very high prices.

I forgot to mention... any car available in India, like porsches, benzes etc... he gets them cheaper then the official price. Thats why he is selling more s classes then t & t.

was just going through this thread and was shocked to read this .!! are you sure ??
