I almost said this was an E-Class coupe (C207), but wow I can't even tell. They are both based on the W204, but never did I realise such similarities to the C-Class coupe (C204).

Toyota seems to be making that a pattern in some areas and leaving things as-is, by not adding newer content and sometimes removing previously available equipment. The LS lost APGS in 2012, likely...

The "40-Series" LS was designed with the E65 in mind from about 2002 (XF40 dev. began in 2001). Lexus froze the final design of that back in 2004, just a year before BMW internally approved concept...
