All-new Lexus LM making its global reveal in China

After four years in production as the more lavish MPV in the Toyota group lineup, Lexus is gearing up to launch an all-new model of the LM, happening at this week's 2023 Shanghai International Automobile Industry Exhibition.

The premium Japanese brand released a teaser image of the all-new LM, showing a completely different rear quarter profile. From the rectangular windows and black panels that mimic a wraparound design, the all-new LM looks like it followed the design language of the Avanza/Veloz MPV with the sloping rear quarter glass.

Lexus has kept other details of the all-new Luxury Mover under wraps, but it's likely to still share the same platform with the next-generation Toyota Alphard. It is however interesting that Lexus is launching the more premium MPV first before Toyota instead of the other way around.

The LM is nothing short of a surprising success in the Philippine market, as it became the best-selling model in the Lexus PH lineup at one point amidst the uncertainty of the pandemic and the parts supply issues that came along.

With unit supplies on the road to recovery, needless to say, many will have their checks ready while having a keen eye on what new levels of luxury Lexus has to offer with the all-new LM.
