Consumer Reports auto experts report from the 2011 New York Auto Show in New York City.
Lexus LF-Gh hybrid

What is it? About an inch and a half longer and wider than the current ES sedan, the LF-Gh is described as a grand touring rear-wheel-drive sedan designed to coddle up to four passengers in typical Lexus fashion. Lexus is making the bold claim that the LF-Gh is an “agile, responsive sedan” and is designed to “inspire and captivate the driver as hours behind the wheel accumulate.” In other words, not your father’s Lexus.

Inside, the concept features a luxurious interior described as being driver oriented. An interesting touch is the move to an analog clock, much like competing Infiniti has long favored.

The hybrid-powered sedan is said to preview future styling cues, the most distinctive of which is the new nose featuring a “spindle-shaped grille.”
