Wow! Was not expecting that.
I predict it will have more L-Finesse ... like the LC
Interesting...I feel like its too soon but oh well! I'm excited! The headlight is quite different than any Lexus model. I like it so far
Was definitely not expecting to see an update this soon. Really like that 'triple L' design of the headlight. Those are some really sharp lines on the bumper too. Interested to see the full reveal!
Interesting they called it a "mid-size".
Is this a refresh or a completely new design?
I doubt it is a complete new design since this generation is only in its third year ... Lexus's pattern has been to refresh a design at the beginning of the fourth year.
Remember this ... HA!
Very Interesting, can't wait for next week to see the whole car.
Not surprising to see triple headlights appearing in facelifted IS as its competitors also have more exquisite, uniquely shaped premium headlights available. And to make triple LED headlights the standard across various Lexus vehicles, it also can reduce some cost due to use of common components and it increases visibility on the road.
Really look forward to see how Lexus change the bumper details to suit the new headlights.
If there is any changes in interior --- I would think the following makes sense as it has an improved premium feel, cost reduction by using common elements, etc.
1. Change the front overhead to LED with touch sensing, just like what is available in NX, new RX, ES, etc
2. Remote Touch controller is replaced with a remote pad. The positions of upholders, remote pad and the drive selector will be like what are in RC/RC-F.
O.K. You have my attention...
..."redesigned midsize sedan..."
The IS is midsize???
WOW!!! very interesting ...
Honestly, after what happened to Toyota/Lexus manufacture, I wasn't expecting Lexus to introduce a new facelift IS or any other Lexus. However, I'm really excited to see how it's going to look and as I see, Lexus is making the triple headlights in the most of the Lexus line. Which, really great compared to other brands. Because it is unique to Lexus only!
CAN'T WAIT FOR THE RESULT!!!
Also, a small notice. In the Middle East, the most selling cars are the SUVs in general. But, actually as a mid-size car, the Lexus IS is really growing in the street. At least what I see in the UAE
I really dig the new headlamp, I also like the way the hood meets the headlamp's inner end.
Is it just a refresh or new generation?
Mid cycle facelift I think
The update IS look better than my friend's 2016 Cadillac ATS.
Besides the headlights, compare the teaser to the front of the LF-CC ..
I've heard from a lil birdie that the screen shall be larger inside.
That's great news! Hope your birdie proves to be true!
