Lexus IS Sport

2015 Frankfurt Motor Show: Lexus IS to also get a sports edition with strong-looking black parts

Lexus announced on September 3 that it will unveil the IS Sport at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show, which will be held in Germany beginning September 15.

The IS Sport is based on the F Sport. It features a much aggressive styling.

There are two sports editions: the IS200t mounted with a turbocharged gasoline engine; and the IS300h, which is a hybrid. For the exterior, the color of the spindle grille and the door mirrors have been changed to black. To tighten the look, it is outfitted with 18-inch exclusive black wheels.

Meanwhile, the interior uses a black upholstery fabric. A moonstone-colored stitching was used for the door trims and the sides of the seat to accentuate them.

Including the Sonic White, Satin Silver, Red, and Straight Black, the Lexus IS Sport will be available in eight colors.
