For other markets, including the Russian, under the hood of the novelty will be written atmospheric petrol engines with six and four cylinders. So no turbo motors for the new Lexus EU are yet provided.
After changing the generation and moving to a new platform, the ES model from Lexus got an advanced rear multi-link suspension and driver settings of the chassis, while the sedan retained the status of the car with a high level of driving comfort. The new generation of the EU Lexus, with a look at the related Toyota Camry and Toyota Avalon models, also received a more dumpy body with a reduced center of gravity and increased external dimensions in all directions, except perhaps for the height of the body (it was reduced by 5 mm compared to the previous generation sedan) .
