BEST FOOT FORWARD
A dashing visual feature introduced with the current generation GS in 2011, the Spindle Grille has heralded a new chapter for Lexus as a premier automotive brand
The bold, 3-D appeal of the grille’s profile is the result of an ongoing design evolution. The upper half of the grille, a trapezoid-like shape, was first introduced in 2005 with the GS model. It was part of Lexus’s attempt to create an individual face for the brand — soon leading to the decision to develop an additional lower grille aperture, forming the resultant spindle grille.
