interest from customers wanting an IS with a point of difference.
"Since the arrival of the IS F to Australia, we've seen sustained growth in enquiry from
customers that hadn't considered Lexus before."
"They may not have the means to purchase an IS F, but they definitely want their IS 250 to
stand out from the pack."
"Combined, the updated IS 250 range, IS 250C and IS F offer a compelling vehicle line-up for
luxury vehicle purchasers," said Mr Roca.
