Lexus has updated its large sedan range by adding new on-board and safety technology while also improving chassis rigidity.

All Lexus GS and LS models benefit from the upgrades, headlined by the adoption of Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA), ENFORM connected mobility services, SD card-based navigation that alerts drivers to speed and red light cameras and school zones, and dual USB ports.

The RCTA function uses the Blind Spot Monitor (BSM) radar system to detect vehicles approaching from behind the vehicle. RCTA alerts the driver via visual and audible warnings to help drivers avoid vehicle damage.

Further updates to both models increase overall chassis stiffness via the use of high rigidity glass and new adhesives.

The front (A) pillar of all GS models has been re-engineered to increase the overall stiffness of the vehicle.

Audio has also been upgraded, with Lexus' premium Mark Levinson system now available to more GS customers.

GS 350 F Sport gains this premium sound system as standard, while GS 250 and 300h F Sport models can be specified with the system via an optinal enhancement pack.

All LS models already receive the Mark Levinson system as standard.

LS models gain new LED interior dome lights, adding to the cabin's premium feel.

The update will also see the self-healing exterior colour of Titanium Silver replace Elysium Blue on GS models.

Lexus Australia chief executive Sean Hanley said the updates provided important safety upgrades while adding further touches of class to the GS and LS Lines.

"These new features and added levels of safety will make the LS and GS sedans even more of a pleasure to own and drive," Mr Hanley said.
