LEXUS has lifted the lid on two new vehicles at the Pebble Beach Concours d’ Elegance, the premier concours event in the US, unveiling LX 570 luxury SUV and updated GS mid size luxury sedan line, which includes the new turbocharged GS 200t.
The LX 570 features a sweeping upgrade, with only four door panels and roof carried over from the current model. It also features an eight-speed transmission, replacing the six-speed unit, as well as the Drive Mode Select system for tailoring power train and suspension responses.
Other highlights include a redesigned luxury interior featuring an updated multimedia system with 12.3-inch screen and Remote Touch Interface. New 20-inch split 10-spoke wheels and newly available 21-inch 10-spoke wheels provide a commanding road presence.
The exciting new GS 200t replaces the GS 250 in the Australian line-up and headlines the refreshed GS Line alongside the updated GS 300h, GS 350 and GS 450h. The GS features a restyled front end, upgraded multimedia technology, the newly available Lexus Safety System + package, new exterior paint colours, interior colours and ornamentation selections.
It will feature Lexus’ 2.0-litre turbocharged four cylinder engine producing 180kW and 350Nm. It will be allied to an eight-speed sports direct transmission and drive the rear wheels.
The new models will appear in Australian showrooms in December.
