NAIAS 2013: All-New 2014 Lexus IS

First Official Photos of All-New 2014 Lexus IS Sedan in F Sport Guise [Updated]
JANUARY 09, 2013
Carscoop

We don't know when exactly Lexus was planning to share official photos of its hotly anticipated IS, but today, we discovered a full set of images of the executive compact sedan, less than a week before the car's public debut at the Detroit auto show.
These images [now in high-resolution] afford us our first unobstructed view of the Japanese carmaker's third attempt to rival the BMW 3-Series, the Mercedes-Benz C-Class and the Audi A4.

The model seen here is an F Sport variant (not to be confused with the high-performance IS F), which means it features an aerodynamic kit, taller alloy wheels, a bespoke finish for the grille, a lowered suspension and tuned chassis along with a sportier trimmed interior, while keeping the same powerplant(s) as the regular IS.

Lexus is the only new car to come with "pre-crashed" front-end from the factory...

Can someone answer why people buy Lexus?? The buyers don't buy for the styling of these things.

I really don't like how the grille goes down that low, if it was didn't come down that low it would look better.

Lexus' new design language just doesn't look like it belongs on a luxury brand at all. It looks more mainstream.

Look at the new Altima, Nissan is taking the Lexus' spindle nose entry level!!

Edit: Anybody know what the thanks and thanked number represent? Or if there is any way to know how you got them?
