TORRANCE, CA – Toyota’s Lexus division has released official photos of its all-new 2014-MY Lexus IS compact sport sedan. The automaker said the new design features the Lexus spindle grille design, a new articulated headlamp cluster with L-shaped daytime running lights below it, large rear tires that enhance the perception of traction, and a low center of gravity.

Inside, the IS features an extended wheelbase and a thinner front seat design to provide more knee room and easier access. A new set of 60:40 split/folding rear seats provide more cargo room in the back. The center console incorporates electrostatic switches to control air conditioning with a touch.

Lexus added that it lowered the seat hip point and the angle of the new, LFA-inspired steering wheel, and adjusted the steering wheel’s reach adjustment feature, to create a sportier driving position.

The automaker plans to reveal the new vehicle at the Detroit Auto SHow on Jan. 15 at 9:30 a.m. EST.
