Prices announced for 2017 Lexus IS
The 2017 Lexus IS is now on sale, bringing revised design, extra safety equipment and updated suspension.
Due to start customer deliveries in January, the updated third-generation model will be priced from £29,995 to £38,995 and brings revised frontal styling, including the latest evolution of the signature Lexus spindle grille, and updated headlights, including new triple-L LED headlights on F Sport and Premier models. The rear lights have also been redesigned, with LED lamps and new light guides, and the range of alloys is also updated.
Inside, the high-resolution multi-information screen for the Lexus Premium Navigation system has been increased from seven to 10.25 inches and provides a split-screen function. The interior also gains features including an updated steering wheel plus new finishes.
Powertrains and performance data are unchanged but the model’s dynamic performance has been improved through revisions to the front and rear suspension and steering.
Equipment updates see the Lexus Safety Sense+ portfolio of advanced safety systems added as a standard equipment feature on all versions of the IS, apart from the entry-level IS 300h SE.
In addition, the IS also gains a Sway Warning, which alerts of any deviations that might be due to the driver losing concentration through tiredness or distraction.
The 2017 Lexus IS retains its existing grade line-up with the IS 300h hybrid available in SE, Executive Edition, Sport, Advance, Luxury, F Sport and Premier trims. The turbo petrol-powered IS 200t is available in Premier and F Sport specification, with the latter featuring the IS Premier Pack, adding equipment features to match the range-topping grade.
