These are the first official pictures of the new Lexus IS , which will be unveiled at the Detroit motor show. The new car, which goes on sale later this year, has remained true to the Lexus LF-CC concept car seen at the Paris motor show.
The IS is longer and wider than the outgoing car, with a longer wheelbase, and delivers what is claimed as best in class knee room for rear passengers. The sharp exterior styling retains the conceptís full height grille and large air intakes. IS F Sport models get their own front bumper and grill designs.
The cabin, too, is very similar to the conceptís with its high centre console that splits the cabin, analogue clock and off-set gearshifter. The switches on the centre console are touch sensitive.
In the UK, the IS will be offered with two drivetrains, both using a 2.5-litre petrol V6. The standard car will be badged IS250, while the hybrid IS300h should be capable of emitting under 100g/km of CO2. The diesel will be dropped in favour of the hybrid.
