Lexus Australia will add the sporting IS 350 sedan to the Australian model line-up in late 2010.

Australia will become one of only four countries to receive the powerful IS 350 sedan, joining the United States, Canada and Japan.

Lexus IS 350 features a quad-cam 3.5-litre V6 petrol engine, matched to a six-speed sequential transmission, developing 228 kW* of power and 375 Nm* of torque and propelling the IS from standstill to 100 km/h in just 5.6* seconds.

The IS 350 will join the growing IS line which includes the 2.5-litre V6 IS 250 sedan, the 5.0 litre V8 IS F and the IS 250 convertible.

Lexus chief executive Tony Cramb said the addition of IS 350 had come after a long and intense negotiation process with Lexus' head office in Japan. "Lexus Australia has always stated that IS 350 would be a welcome addition to the local vehicle line-up and we are very excited about its arrival," he said.

"The IS 350 will slot nicely between IS 250 and IS F, further strengthening Lexus' performance credentials. "IS 350, along with future product from Lexus, will go a long way to solidifying Lexus' popularity in Australia," Mr Cramb said.

*Performance figures are indicative only and based on current United States specified vehicle - figures for local vehicles will be confirmed closer to th local launch date.
