Lexus South Africa has announced minor upgrades for its GS sedan and RX sport utility vehicle for the 2014 model year.
The executive GS sedanThe Lexus GS represents an executive sedan with a wider track, more direct steering, re-engineered exhaust system which sounds more sporty, an automatic gearbox with paddle shifters, and vented disc brakes. The extensive use of aluminium means the new Lexus GS entertains when it comes to dynamic driving.
The executive sedan further adopts the LFA-inspired eight-speed Sport Direct Shift automatic transmission featured in the Lexus IS F. The GS 350 will now be available with the F-Sport body kit package, while the GS 450h model now has a full-colour heads-up display as standard.
Sporty RX SUVFor 2014, the RX has been refreshed with a new “Appearance Pack” that is now standard on the RX 350 EX model. This pack comes with a re-designed bumper with larger air intakes. There are also new 19-inch alloy wheels (as opposed to the 18-inch units on the outgoing model), as well as LED-type front fog lamps.
For the RX 450h SE, the latest upgrade includes the LED interior lighting package as well as the adoption of the Integrated Sport Driving system which enables the driver to tune the Drive Mode Select to Eco, Normal or Sport settings.
