Renewed productivity configurations and refined appearance – that is what Lexus proposes in a new generation of a sedan – 2016 Lexus IS 200T. Latter-day potent engine paired with polished outlines crave to create new concept of an ideal driving.
Outer and Inner View
Speculations suggest that new 2016 Lexus IS 200T will not differ greatly from its forerunner in the outer design. The enhancement may touch bumpers, lights, and front grill design. The luggage space is also enlarged.
The interior design is going to be distinguished and as luxury as Lexus usually makes. Almost every inch of the salon will be covered with leather upholstery. The same about wheel – it will be leather-wrapped. Seats are heated independently and ventilated as well. Sound Console can boast of 9 speakers located to create full-surround effect. New IS also proposes the best in its class back seat room. Electronic LFA-inspired dashboard is available in the sport version.
Weak motor of the 2015 model will be replaced with a new powerful one. Improved V6 engine will have 2.0 liters, but its main characteristic feature is that it is turbocharged. Thus, smaller cubic capacity will give more power – approximately over 300 horsepower. They say it will be able to accelerate up to 60 mph in 6 seconds. Thus, it is pretty enough power for brisk acceleration.
All-Wheel-Travel System was created to permit a safe and comfortable driving in all possible weather conditions. Heavy rain or snow blizzard is not an obstacle anymore – wheel and tire stabilizing system will make it for you. It also enhances handling and safety. The disadvantages of this system claimed by numerous drivers are the weight increase and thereafter the fuel economy reduction.
Price and Release Dates
Expectations were confirmed and now we know that the car will be available in two body types – sedan and convertible. It is hard to speculate about price for now. The starting amount is said to be $40,000 reaching over $100,000 in luxury full-supplied versions. It will also be available in a sport version – a bit more expensive than a standard one. Convertible is not going to be much expensive than regular. Rumors say that the vehicle might be presented to the end of the year 2015 on one of the Car Shows.
