/PRNewswire/ -- Lexus' luxury sedans and SUVs are showing off new, bolder personalities at the Fort Lauderdale International Auto Show this week.
Following up on the success of the GS sport sedan, Lexus is improving the handling across its entire lineup to deliver an entertaining and engaging driving experience. F SPORT variants of most models take Lexus driving dynamics to a whole new level, bringing passion, excitement and driver involvement to the brand along with comfort, quiet and durability.
With a dramatic change in design, a whole new Lexus is emerging. In less than two years, Lexus will have changed the face of every vehicle in its lineup with its iconic "spindle" grille, putting a bold new face on the brand.
The Lexus display in
will highlight some of the luxury manufacturer's latest vehicles, including the new GS, ES and LS sedans and RX and LX sport utility vehicles.
To create the ideal driving feel and enhance cornering performance, the Lexus GS sport sedan has a widened track and updated suspension. The available navigation system features a 12.3-inch split-screen, high resolution multi-media display large enough to support simultaneous, split-screen viewing of a large map display, plus audio, climate or other vehicle information.
Both gas and hybrid ES models feature Drive Mode Select, which tailors the throttle response and engine power output for a customized driving experience. The ES sedan's innovative approach to safety includes a class-leading 10-airbag system and an available Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross Traffic Alert, which alerts the driver to traffic when backing out of a parking spot.
Lexus' premium lineup of luxury LS flagship sedans includes the LS 460, LS 460L, LS 600h L hybrid and the first-ever LS 460 F SPORT. The 460 models are available in rear-wheel or all-weather drive. The LS hybrid has full-time all-weather-drive.
