New Lexus IS Includes First 300h Hybrid

Lexus has unveiled its all-new, next-generation Lexus IS compact sport sedan. The new IS features IS 250, IS 350, and IS 300h choices, with the latter offering powerful and efficient Lexus Hybrid Drive. The F SPORT version shown is available across the board.

Stylishly aggressive, the new IS sedan features a longer wheelbase and increased width to present a powerful stance. Design elements include the new Lexus spindle grille front end, wide flared wheel arches, and a sweeping and sporty profile. Articulated headlamp clusters and L-shaped daytime running lamps add to the distinctive appearance up front.

Inside, the cabin is elegant and packed with sporty and innovative touches including an LFA-inspired steering wheel and a center console with electrostatic switches, enabling control of air conditioning temperature with the touch of a finger.

A thinner front seat design combined with the longer wheelbase provides greater comfort for rear seat passengers, plus new 60:40 split/folding rear seats expand luggage capacity and versatility.
