Guided by the philosophy of continuous improvement, THE LEXUS IS, NX, RC AND LS MODELS have been enhanced for 2020. Available now in Lexus dealerships around SA, this is what you can expect.
Enjoy making a bold statement? Then the angular and expressive Lexus NX will give you all the right feels. For 2020, the NX 300h SE model comes with a cache of new exterior features including headlamp cleaners and headlamp levelling, a power- enabled hatch and automatic re-retractable side mirrors. Climb inside and you’ll find wooden dashboard inserts, a panoramic sunroof, 60:40 power-adjustable second row seats, leather upholstery as well as driver memory for the front seat. Lexus Safety System, which includes Pre-crash System, Lane Trace Assist and Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross Traffic Alert, is standard on the NX 300h SE and NX 300 F-Sport. Finally, all NX models benefit from an infotainment upgrade that offers Android Auto and Apple CarPlay functionality.
The Lexus IS has long been known for its dynamic handling and responsiveness. It now offers more in the way of luxury with the IS 300 Hybrid EX and flagship IS 350 F-Sport both profiting from a 15-speaker Mark Levinson sound system and rear sunshade as standard. The F-Sport also comes equipped with LED Hi (previously LED Lo) headlamps with AHB (Adaptive High Beam). Finally, all IS models can now be ordered in a brand new shade of paint: Manganese Luster.
The current Lexus RC 350 F-Sport luxury sports coupé arrived in SA a little over a year ago. Skip forward to the present and you’ll find that its lavish cabin is now home to an electronic parking brake plus a sonorous 17-speaker Mark Levinson sound system. Further enhancements include Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
LEXUS LS IS A FINE BLEND OF PERFORMANCE, HANDLING AND COMFORT, NOT TO MENTION UNRIVALLED CRAFTSMANSHIP.
The Lexus LS is the epitome of luxury: an executive saloon that offers a fine blend of performance, handling and comfort – not to mention unrivalled craftsmanship. It is currently available in two derivatives, the LS 500 and LS 500 F-Sport. Both have been upgraded with Adaptive Cruise Control All Speed (previously High Speed only) while the Lane Keep Assist system has been improved and includes features such as Steering Vibration and Lane Trace Assist. For 2020 we also see adjustments to the colour palette. Terrane Khaki and Amber are no longer available on the LS 500, while Amber is discontinued on the LS 500 F Sport.
