LEXUS RELEASED ITS NEW IS MODEL WITH A PROGRESSIVE NEW LOOK
The new 2021 Lexus IS lands in Australia in the last quarter of 2020. This Japanese luxury mid-size sedan will have a major outside makeover with emphasis on more aggressive features. The front is a progressive new look on the current Lexus IS model where you can feel the new Lexus designs effort in maintaining consistency with SUV models.
The Powertrain has been carried over from the previous Lexus IS model, where the current engines power and fuel efficiency remains unchanged:
The IS300 has a 2.0 Litre turbo four-cylinder petrol engine paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission.
The IS300h hybrid provides immediate acceleration through its electric motor accompanied with a 2.5 Litre four-cylinder petrol engine.
The IS350 owns a 3.5-litre V6 petrol engine.
The 2021 Lexus IS is in-line with other Lexus new designs with its forceful streamlined front light design. The DRLs are now incorporated into the main headlights, which take on a narrow, wedge like shape. The new Lexus IS model is based on the current IS platform but with bigger dimensions and major enhancements. There are also some revisions to the sedan's side profile with new character lines.
Additionally, an innovative lighting element connects the taillights together, which gives the new models rear-end design a lowered deck guise which looks more appealing on the new IS.
The redesigned Lexus IS lacks any major changes on the inside but has subtle alterations to the dash design. The infotainment system includes a 10.3-inch touchscreen.
Despite the lack of inside change, Lexus did improve its safety system to include more developed features such as:
- Lane Recognition System
- Driver Emergency Stop Assist
- Emergency Steering Assist
- Pre-Collision Safety System
- Low Speed Acceleration Control.
Lexus ensures that they also upgraded the comfort factor for its mid-size Sedan with a smoother steering wheel and less noise and vibration reaching its cabin. The excellent responsive new shock absorbers will also provide outstanding comfort on all surfaces and deliver an exceptionally smooth ride on your trips.
We think the new Lexus IS will carry on the success of its previous model and with its new do, it will continue to be the most fruitful passenger Lexus car!
