The 2017 model year is a light one for Lexus with no new or completely redesigned models. None of the cars, SUVs, or crossovers even get a significant midcycle update.

Of course, Lexus isn't sitting on its hands. Toyota's luxury brand is prepping the all-new LC sports coupe and a completely redesigned LS flagship sedan for the 2018 model year. We've already driven the LC and found it to be almost as appealing to drive as it is to look at. The LS, which shares a modified version of the same platform, looks quite promising as well.

As we wait to get into the new LS, let's take a look at what's new for the the 2017 Lexus lineup.
