The Lexus GS and LS have gained a number of new infotainment and safety features for 2015 as well as structural enhancements that boost the luxury sedans’ stiffness.
Additionally, the GS350 F Sport upgrades to a Mark Levinson premium audio system, while the same sound system is now also available in the GS250 and GS300h F Sport variants when specified with an optional enhancement package.
Lexus LS models gain new LED interior dome lights, while for GS models ‘self-healing’ Titanium Silver paint replaces the old Elysium Blue finish.
Lexus claims the use of high-rigidity glass and new adhesives increases the overall stiffness of both models, and the A-pillars of all GS variants have also been re-engineered for increased stiffness.
Lexus Australia has increased the prices of both vehicles as a result of the upgrades, with the GS rising between $400 and $470 and the LS up by $400 across the range.
