• Lexus Australia introduces IS 250 F-Sport package
• F-Sport package featuring unique IS F-style bodywork, sports seats and interior features
• IS 250 range receives USB audio connectivity and 17-inch wheels on Prestige

Lexus has introduced an upgraded IS 250 sedan range, headlined by a new F-Sport option package.

Inspired by the range-topping, high-performance IS F sedan, and based on IS 250 Sports, the new Lexus IS 250 F-Sport gains additional design and comfort enhancements.

Interior features include IS F front seats, steering wheel with F logos, scuff plates, a unique black-with-silver interior trim and a 14 speaker Mark Levinson audio system.

Lexus IS 250 F-Sport vehicles will be further distinguished from the exterior with an IS F-style rear spoiler, grille and the adoption of IS F's unique Flame Blue paint. IS 250 F-Sport also receives sports suspension, twin five spoke 18-inch alloy wheels, aluminum pedals and semi-aniline leather interior.

The IS 250 range will also benefit from greater specification and model updates, including USB audio capability, 17-inch alloy wheels as standard and revised moonroof switch gear (where fitted).

The adoption of USB and audio jack plug connectivity enables controlled use of portable music players such as iPods^ from the IS 250's touch navigation screen*.

Lexus Australia Chief Executive John Roca said that IS 250 F Sport comes off the back of greater 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.

The Lexus IS 250 F-Sport will be available from 12th October 2009. As always, vehicle specifications are subject to change.
