Lexus launches hybrid sedans

All-new IS 300h on the cards

Lexus set to launch all new sedans.

Lexus is set to launch the third generation of the highly successful IS 250 and IS 350 sedans with its largest model line-up, including F Sport variants across the range and an all-new IS 300h hybrid model.

The rear-wheel drive IS models feature a new longer, wider platform with a 60/40 rear-fold split seat, innovative on-board features and a more rigid body thanks to new construction techniques.

F Sport models will leverage the more rigid platform to offer enhanced driving dynamics, with unique steering and chassis tune via an adaptive variable suspension system teamed to the new drive mode select feature.

F Sport models are differentiated by a bespoke interior and exterior styling package, including front and rear bumpers, side skirts, grille, wheels and badging.

All new IS models will feature segment-rivalling levels of standard equipment, including new-to-IS pop-up hood, drive mode select, Lexus Remote Touch, tyre pressure warning sensors, eight airbags, satellite navigation, reversing camera, smart entry and start, and heated and ventilated front seats.

All vehicles benefit from an increase in length of 75mm, with the bulk of that increase delivered in segment-leading rear-seat legroom and greater boot space.
