Having to make due without the IS 350, Australians will have now have another IS option, the IS 250X. Limited to a run of 260, the IS 250X boasts the following upgrades over a base IS 250:
- Sports Tuned Suspension
- 18″ Alloy Wheels
- Revised Front Spoiler
- Alloy Pedals
- X Badging
Starting at $64,390 AUD with a manual transmission (roughly $5,000 AUD over a comparable IS 250), the IS 250X will come in three colors: Vermillion (red), Silver, and Onyx. The release is expected later this month.
