2009 Lexus IS Facelift – First Official Photos
While Lexus' execs continue to be tight lipped on the revised IS, the Japanese automaker has uploaded photos of the car on a number of its sites. The photos that we scanned confirm the minor changes seen in the official brochure that was leaked into the web last month. Unless you look really close, chances are that you probably won’t even notice any differences.
The styling revisions are limited to a slightly tweaked front grille, restyled tail lamp crystals featuring L-shaped back-up lights, redesigned exterior mirrors with integrated turn signals and new alloy wheel designs. The 2009 IS will also get new exterior and interior color combinations along with a revised electronic stability control system. According to Carscoop sources, the 2009 IS will make its public debut at the Paris Show in October.
