Leaked: 2011 Lexus IS Facelift

Earlier this month we revealed you the first spy shots with the 2011 Lexus IS facelift. Well, today the facelift became almost official as the first brochure with the 2011 model appeared on the web. As expected the changes are minor and we can see the presence of the daytime running LEDs as well as a revised front bumper.

Also, few updates are seen at the interior and include an USB connector and an aluminum trim. According to Lexus, the 2011 IS will also be with 15% more fuel-efficeint than the current model. However, it appears that the big improvements will be seen on the 2011 Lexus IS F Sport model because this model was developed by the same team who built the LFA Supercar.

The new F Sport model receives a new front grille, a new rear spoiler as well as a revised suspension. Inside we find a new sport gear knob and new sport seats. The 18-inch sport wheels complete the design of the new car.
