First look at the new Lexus IS


Lexus has shown first pictures of the new IS range, which will make its public debut at the North American International Auto Show at Detroit.

The model has a more aggressive appearance compared with the current car, while complaints about a cramped interior have also been addressed.

A thinner front seat design and a longer wheelbase improves interior space for rear seat passengers.

As with other recently introduced Lexus models, there will also be an F Sport variant with more overtly spory styling, including a unique grille design, as well as different seats.

The new IS is expected to arrive in the UK this summer, and will be offered with a petrol-electric hybrid variant for lowest CO2 emissions in the range alongside a standard petrol version.
