Lower-priced Lexus gets new styling details

The new 2009 Lexus IS has received a style make-over and had its prices slashed by more than £1,000 on some models.

Lexus has just introduced a new three-grade structure for the 2009 IS range: SE, SE-I and SE-L, with enhanced specifications across the board.

The most eye-catching upgrade is the provision of Lexus’s advanced handling and safety system Vehicle Integrated Dynamics Management (VDIM) as standard on all models.

VDIM co-ordinates the operation of the car’s ABS, Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD), Traction Control (TRC) and Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) with the Electric Power Steering (EPS), providing smooth, optimum assistance as the car tests its performance limits.

Drivers will also benefit from new folding rear headrests for better rearward vision when the back seats are unoccupied.

Style-lovers will appreciate Cellensia suede-effect upholstery which has been fitted to the entry level SE models, while the new SE-I versions build on the current SE grade with the addition of front and rear parking sensors.

The upgrades will make the job of used Lexus dealers even easier.
