Lexus IS Redesign Debut at Beijing Auto Show

A New Redesign

At the 2016 Beijing International Automotive Exhibition Lexus will unveil its newly redesigned midsize luxury sports sedan; the Lexus IS. The new model will bring exciting breakthroughs through Lexus’ signature L Finesse design philosophy, pushing the boundaries forward to boldly evolve the visual impact of the IS.

The Lexus IS

Originally introduced in 1998, the Lexus IS has been a household favorite in the category of entry-level luxury vehicles. Combining performance and fuel efficiency, the latest version offers 241 horsepower on a 2.0-litre 4-cylinder engine. With five seats, 8-10 airbags and a fuel rating of 10.7/7.2 L/100km (City/Hwy), the IS starts at $39,450. With optional upgrade packages including Lexus’ widely appreciated F-SPORT package.

Three Current Models

With three different models to currently choose from (200t, 300 AWD, and the 350 AWD) the IS line-up offers up to 306 horsepower in the 350 AWD model. With exceptional handling and performance in all three, any of these vehicles are ready to hit the road and perform admirably. The 200t offers rear-wheel drive, while the 300 and 350 offer all-wheel drive, configuring an exceptional weight distribution and sharp handling depending on which model you choose.

A Consumer Favorite

The IS has been a consumer favorite since its release in 1998 and with the new redesign the Lexus IS will be sure to catch eyes on the road. Keep an eye out during the Automotive Exhibition at the end of April for more news on the Lexus IS Redesign.
