2016 Lexus IS 200t – 2015 Chengdu Motor Show


Riza Rizvi,

Hopelessly in love with everything on four wheels. Interested in cars since my formative years, with an unhealthy affinity for exotics and tuners. Fondness for the open road with high-octane machinery for company!

The design language is the same as other IS models.

Lexus has showcased it’s IS 200t sedan at the 2015 Chengdu Motor Show (CDMS 2015). The car has been priced at Chinese Yuan 3,69,000 (INR 38,67,836).

The exterior of the sedan does not differ from its stable mates. It has the same single-piece spindle-shaped grille, sleek angular headlamps, L-shaped LED DRLs and big air intakes on the bumper. The sides get prominent wheel arches, new 5-spoke alloys, stylish ORVMs and side skirts. The rear, though not pictured here, gets sharp edgy LED taillights, subtle bootlid spoiler and twin tailpipes.

The interior will be getting the standard high-resolution Lexus Display Audio (LDA) with controller, dual-zone climate control or the optional Lexus navigation system. The optional system can be controlled via the second-generation Lexus Remote Touch Interface (RTI) multi-function control device.
