Low, and here, our expectations have recently been met, as Lexus showed a slightly updated IS sedan in 2017.
As we expected, the exterior and interior get a whole bunch of subtle mods for updates in the middle of the cycle.
Such changes include a redesigned front and rear lower trim with a rear end, including recycled rectangular exhaust tips, slightly new head designs with more pronounced L-shaped LED daytime running lights, and much more.
And … that’s all. All powertrains for the Lexus IS are portable elements: the IS200t receives the latest and all-new 4-liter turbocharged 2.0-liter model, the IS300 with a 2.5-liter naturally aspirated V6 and the highest specification IS350 with a 3.5-liter V6,
Sales will begin in Beijing almost immediately, while the American version should appear at the end of this year in 2017 MY.
