The brand organized the public premiere of the new large minivan as part of the Shanghai Motor Show, which took place this spring.

Lexus dealers will receive the first minivan with the logo of this Japanese brand on February 24, 2020. Essentially, Lexus’ luxury new product is the converted Toyota Alphard. With the difference that Lexus LM already in the “base” receives the maximum list of premium options. In length, the novelty reaches 5,040 mm with a wheelbase of 3,000 mm. Externally, the Lexus LM differs from Toyota Alphard in other head optics in the style of the flagship ES and LS of the new generation, a dimensional spindle-shaped radiator grille, original rims and redrawn stern.

In the cabin Lexus LM appears a special partition separating the passenger and driver areas. It has a large 26-inch display, a clock and even a refrigerator. For passengers there are comfortable captain’s chairs with leather trim. Between them there was a place for an armrest with an integrated touch panel. With it, you can adjust the climate in the cabin, control multimedia and navigation.

 Especially for businessmen, the brand prepared a minivan with a three-row passenger compartment for seven seats.

 Lexus LM borrowed the engine range from Toyota Alphard. So, the LM350 is equipped with a 3.5-liter 300-horsepower gasoline aspirated V6, and the LM300h gets a 200-horsepower hybrid, consisting of a 2.5-liter engine and an electric engine. The cost of a luxury minivan in China, according to Autohome, starts at 889,800 yuan
