Lexus displayed an updated IS luxury sedan that will receive a mid-cycle update in its third generation in late April at the Beijing auto show.
The next Lexus IS, which has not been assigned a model year, will arrive with new fascia styling, interior updates, and a new safety package, Lexus announced.
The Lexus IS 200t remains powered by a 2.0L twin-scroll turbocharged inline-4 that's mated with an 8-speed automatic transmission.
The new model will include the Lexus Safety System+, a multimedia screen that grows to 10.3 inches from 7 inches, a new Remote Touch Interface with "Enter" buttons, new headlights, and an updated spindle grille.
Lexus offers the 2016 rear-wheel IS in three models, including the IS 200t, IS 300, and IS 350 with F Sport variants.
