After a series of new model introductions over the past several model years, luxury car maker Lexus has taken a break in debuting a heavily-revised vehicle. The 2009 Lexus product range does feature several minor revisions. Receiving updated styling featuring a new grille and bumpers, the 2009 Lexus IS 250 and IS 350 also gain handling enhancements. All Lexus IS models (including the high-performance IS F) are fitted with a new center dash cluster. After arriving standard on the Lexus LS 600h L in 2008, all-wheel drive availability is expanded to the LS 460 and LS 460 L models for 2009. On the 2009 Lexus LX 570, added amenities such as a semi-aniline leather interior, SmartAccess card key and a center console cool box is available as part of a newly-optional Luxury Package.
A hybrid car that combines fuel economy with high performance, the 2009 Lexus GS 450h is a midsize sport sedan that is loaded with the latest technology, including advanced electronic safety equipment.
