These are the first official picture of the new Lexus IS. At first glance the car looks very similar to the current model, but it actually boasts a slightly altered front grille and redesigned wing mirrors with integrated indicator lights.
Larger 17- and 18-inch alloys are also part of the upgraded package, which also includes an updated range of exterior and interior colours.
As these new images reveal, the new compact executive saloon gets new tail light clusters as well as a restyled front bumper to keep it fresh.
There's no confirmation when Lexus will launch the facelifted IS but we expect its official unveiling to take place at next month's Paris motors show.
