Though the new Lexus LM 350 is heavily based on the Toyota Vellfire, it is more than just an even more posh version of the already luxurious donor vehicle. The “LM” name actually means Luxury Mover.
The Lexus LM is the brand’s first minivan . See how different and similar it is to the Toyota Alphard/Vellfire it’s based on.
The Toyota Alphard and Vellfire are sold primarily in Japan, China and Asia. The LM was just launched at the 2019 Shanghai Auto Show. It will be available in China, but also, probably, across much of Asia.
The two cars are very closely related. Although we don’t have official figures yet, we expect the LM to share the Alphard’s 4,935mm (194.3-in) length, 1,850mm (73-in) width, and 3,000mm (120-in) wheelbase.
