Morris Minor Off-Roader Is Actually A Suzuki Vitara Underneath

  Morris Minor Off-Roader Is Actually A Suzuki Vitara Underneath Welcome to the world's most interesting Morris Minor. We’ve found the world’s most exciting Morris Minor and it’s not exactly what you think it is. Upon first glance, it appears to be a Morris Minor with a lifted suspension and comically large tires, but speak to the owner and you’ll find a new appreciation for this incredible build. From hand-laid carbon fiber to the resourceful use of multiple parts cars, this build has it all.

  • The Lexus ES is in store for a few minor changes as it rolls into the 2022 model year.
  • Slightly tweaked headlamps, a revised grille design, and new wheels are visual identifiers for 2022 models.
  • Inside, the ES receives new touchscreen infotainment systems; the ES's driver-assistance tech also gets a few upgrades.

Lexus showed off the refreshed 2022 ES sedan at the Shanghai auto show today, but unless it's parked directly next to a 2021 model, you might be hard-pressed to tell the difference. That's probably okay, as this latest generation ES is still looking attractive even though we're midway through its life cycle. Say what you want about the spindle grille, this sedan's design has otherwise aged well.

Naturally, they chose the IS sports sedan for this experience.

Some minor tweaks to the headlights have been made, and they now feature bi-LED lamps as well as an auto-leveling feature. The grille has been tweaked, and new wheel designs have been added. Even so, the ES more or less looks the same as it did last year.

Speaking of appearance, the more aggressively-styled F Sport trim will be offered on the hybrid ES300h model for the first time. Buyers of the V-6–powered ES350 F Sport model will now have the option of a new Dynamic Handling package, which adds adaptive dampers as well as Sport + and custom drive modes.

The most noticeable change for 2022 is actually on the inside, as the ES's infotainment display has been swapped out for a touchscreen unit and has been moved closer to the driver for easier access. This fixes a minor gripe we've had with the ES since its last redesign, which required drivers to interact with a rather fussy touchpad on the center console as the sole way to control the car's infotainment system. An 8.0-inch touchscreen is standard but, as in 2021 models, buyers can upgrade to a larger 12.3-inch unit.

Also on the technology front, the 2022 ES receives the upgraded Lexus Safety System+ 2.5 suite of driver-assistance features. The step from 2.0 to 2.5 brings pedestrian and cyclist detection as well as a few new features, including Intersection Turning Assist and Curve Speed Reduction, the latter of which reduces the vehicle's speed in sharp corners when using adaptive cruise control.

The updated ES will also be offered in two new colors, Iridium and Cloudburst Gray, along with a few new interior color schemes and newly available black open-pore wood trim. You can expect to see the 2022 ES at Lexus dealers in the fall.
