Lexus GS 450h 2010MY Facelift

Japanese carmaker Lexus revised the pre-crash safety system found in the GS 450h to support the pre-crash seatbelt and break assist functions. They used pre-crash brake technology. The front seats were fitted with new-inflator-operated active headrests. In case of a rear-end impact they get active by a signal from the ECU. The effect reduced the risk of whiplash injury and supports the heads of the occupants. The new Lexus GS 450h also receives a new hard disc drive navigation system with 40 GB memory with a wide coverage with traffic information data for each country in Europe. The list of features continues with two audio systems that include a 10-speaker Lexus premium package and also a 14-speaker Mark Levinson Premium Surround Sound System. This last one offers 5.1 channel surround sound on the selected CDs and DVDs. Both systems mentioned above are DAB ready and offer USB and audio jack plug connection to use portal music players and Bluetooth with audio streaming function. The systems also use the HDD to transfer and store music files of up to 10 GB capacity. This means it can store around 2.000 tracks. In terms of styling, the 2010 Lexus GS 450 has a new special front grille that features a series of horizontal bars. The rear lamp clusters have been modified to fit inside larger, transparent outer lenses. All the output is being transferred to the road through 18-inch alloy wheels. When it comes to the cabin, you should know it features a hybrid-blue stop / start button and the ones interested can choose the new Verano Grey semi-aniline leather upholstery that is being offered as an option. The carmaker offers 11 options for the exterior color of the 2010 Lexus GS 450.
