Lexus IS F-Sport Package  UK

The Lexus IS range for 2010 Model Year received different improvements. The carmaker introduced the new F-Sport grade, that was inspired by the ultra-high-performance IS F. It sends the power to the wheels through 18-inch alloy wheels. The new F-Sport grade, available for both IS 250 and 220d models, takes its cue from the high impact styling of the IS F and is positioned in the IS line-up between the established SE-I and SE-L models. The exterior features lowered suspension. In the cabin there are aluminum sports pedals IS-F style sports seats, steering wheel and gear lever. The feats have Alcantara upholstery with leather side bolsters finish. A black-on-black interior color scheme is complimented by a black headlining and grey stitching detail on the front seats and steering wheel. F-Sport models share a number of premium equipment features with SE-L grade, including rain-sensing wipers, HID headlights with AFS, 13-speaker audio system and memory settings for the front seats and door mirrors. The Japanese carmaker has developed one of the most accurate and fast-responding navigation systems on the market. Using a 40GB hard disc drive, it provides Europe-wide coverage and is able to gather live local traffic intelligence in each country to help plot the most efficient route, wherever you may be. For F-Sport and SE-L versions of IS, it is included in the optional Multimedia Package, together with a 14-speaker Mark Levinson Premium Surround Sound System and the rear park assist monitor. Lexus IS 250 SE and 220d SE have been given more street appeal for 2010 with 10-spoke 17-inch alloy wheels fitted as standard, in place of the previous 16-inch rims. The revisions made to the IS 250 for the 2010 model year have yielded improvements in fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
