JAPANESE CRAFTSMANSHIP

Every Lexus is crafted using traditional techniques with an exquisite attention to detail, reflecting the Japanese art of hospitality - ‘Omotenashi’. Every need is seamlessly anticipated and delivered.

WHERE INDOORS AND OUTDOORS MEET

The design of the UX is inspired by the Japanese architectural concept of ‘engawa’ where the boundaries between inside and outside are seamlessly blended. You will connect immediately to a luxurious, driver-focused environment that feels open yet secure.

“WE HAVE ELIMINATED THE BOUNDARY BETWEEN THE EXTERIOR AND INTERIOR, CONNECTING THEM WITH SEAMLESS CONTINUITY. THIS CAN BE SEEN IN ‘ENGAWA’. IN TRADITIONAL JAPANESE ARCHITECTURE: A TYPICALLY WOODEN PASSAGEWAY WHICH EXTENDS FROM THE HOUSE TOWARD THE OUTSIDE.”
KAKO SAN, CHIEF ENGINEER
