New Lexus 'IS' to Make World Premiere at Detroit Auto Show 2013 
Toyota City, Japan, Jan 10, 2013 - (JCN Newswire) - Lexus announces that the
new Lexus "IS" sports sedan is to make its world premiere at the
North American International Auto Show scheduled to be held in Detroit, United
States from January 14 through January 27*.  Vehicle specifications and other
details will be announced on January 15. 
The "F Sport" performance grade - the entry level of the Lexus
"F" series sports vehicle lineup - features exclusive interior and
exterior designs to present an outstanding sporty image and will be available
for the "IS 250", "IS 350" models, as well as the
newly-introduced "IS 300h" hybrid model. 
The F Sport exterior employs Lexus' signature spindle grille and
headlamps accented with independent L-shaped clearance lamps, creating a
dynamic front view.  Specially designed 18-inch aluminum wheels give the F
Sport grade a powerful and refined look befitting a sports sedan. 
The IS F Sport seeks to evoke images of the superior driving performance
expected from the F series and is fitted with exclusive sports seats with firm
hold and impressive styling - made through a production method never before
used in any Lexus vehicle - and a movable instrument cluster inherited from the
Lexus "LFA" supercar.
