Toyota Equivalent...

14 posts in this topic

What's the name for the Toyota equivalent of the ES? I noticed from reading many other websites, such as, ClubLexus.com and this forum that apparently even the GS has different names. Correct? Does anyone know all of the equivalent Toyota names for the ES, GS, and the SC models? Just thought one of you guys here in the LS 400 forum would know.

ES = Windom

GS = Aristo

SC = Soarer

LS = Celsior

LX = Land Cruiser

GX = also a "Land Cruiser" but I don't remember the name of the variation.

The LX isn't actually sold in Japan, the closest equivilent is the Land Cruiser Prado. The Lexus IS is sold in Japan as the Toyota Altezza. Other than that, Jims got it! Lexus is being introduced in Japan so pretty soon all the cars will have the same names as here.

casee- The GS has never been connected to the Carina, the Avensis is a different sedan. The GS has always been sold in Japan as an Aristo. The picture you supplied of the Carina looks nothing like the GS lol, its a hatchback and sinificantly smaller than the GS.

Here's some photos of the JDM Aristo you can select them by year:

As you san see its identical to our GS.

Duh, here is a more complete list. I suppose there may be markets where Toyota might call them something else.

IS = Altezza

ES = Windom

GS = Aristo

SC = Soarer

LS = Celsior

LX = Land Cruiser

GX = Land Cruiser GX - here is a photo: http://www.dinside.no/php/art.php?id=85106

I believe its a different platform entirely. The JDM version of the GS is definately the Aristo, there's no doubt about that. The Carina/Avensis is a much smaller and cheaper car than the GS/Aristo.

SW03ES is right on the money - the Carina / Avensis is in no way similar to a GS (other than the 4 wheels and gas tank type similarities :lol: )

Guess you don't get the Avensis over in the US?

We had the Carina E, and now get the Avensis over in the UK - and they are completely different cars

Actually,

ES = Windom

GS = Aristo

SC = Soarer

LS = Celsior

LX = Land Cruiser CYGNUS

GX = As far as i've seen from the toyota japan website, the GX seems to be exclusive to Lexus
