Lexus IS F SPORT (2016 Beijing Motor Show)

2016 Beijing Motor Show: Lexus introduces all-new IS models

On April 25, Lexus unveiled its all-new IS at the 2016 Beijing Motor Show in China.

The current IS was launched in January 2013 at the 2013 North American International Auto Show. Around three years after its debut, Lexus has introduced the first significantly updated model for the current IS.

As with the previous models, the lineup for the new IS consists of two types: a standard model and the sporty F SPORT. For the front grille, the standard model features horizontal linings while the F SPORT comes with mesh patterns.

The F SPORT offers an exclusive spindle grille with jet-black metallic coating on its three-dimensional F-mesh pattern. It also incorporates functional brake ducts which “provide a sense of continuity” with the side garnishes for enhancements to its aerodynamic performance and sporty image.

Along with refined sportiness, the interior inherits its red leather seating from the previous model.
