In Pictures: Introducing the Lexus IS 2017

The new Lexus IS model range makes its European debut at the Paris motor show, featuring revised styling, new exterior and interior colours, an improved driving experience and an upgraded safety specification.

The IS passed a significant milestone in July, the three generations of the compact sports saloon achieving more than one million global sales since the launch of the original model in 1999. The IS was the first Lexus to be designed primarily for the European market, a region where its popularity remains strong to this day. In fact Europe has accounted for almost 20 per cent of the model’s worldwide sales to date.

The current, third generation IS marked the beginning of a new era for the model with the introduction of Lexus Hybrid Drive to the range for the first time. Since its launch in 2013, the IS 300h has proved by far the most popular choice for European customers, claiming 90 per cent of IS sales.

The IS continues to be a key element in Lexus’s worldwide model range, currently marketed in more than 70 countries and achieving more than 6,000 sales every month. The revised IS model range will go on sale early in 2017.
