Fresh from its debut at the Paris Auto Show, the Lexus IS 250C is now making an appearance at the Australia International Auto Show. When asked about the new convertible, Lexus Australia GM John Roca had this to say:
“For the first time in Lexus history we can now claim we have an IS range…[it] will join the soon-to-be-launched IS-F and new IS 250 sedan to form a very strong backbone for the brand,” Mr Roca said.
“IS 250C has been developed to strict Lexus standards. Its superior NVH suppression, wind turbulence characteristics, ride comfort, interior space and versatility will set a new benchmark for convertibles in its class. It will also arrive at a time when practicality and versatility are driving purchase decisions. IS 250C consumers will not have to choose between sedan versatility and convertible enjoyment.”
Lexus is extremely excited about the addition of IS 250C to the local model line-up in the later half of 2009,” Mr Roca said.
Seems the IS 250C will be taking its time making its way to Australia, but even more than that, Lexus fans down under still don’t have the IS-F?
