Lexus SA Updates Range


Lexus South Africa has announced updates to a few models in its portfolio. Here's what's changed, as well as SA pricing.

The 4 models which have been updated for 2020 are the Lexus IS, NX, RC and LS. Lexus SA classes these updates as minor improvements, so you're not going to see radical differences.

The Lexus IS range currently features 3 models; the flagship IS 350 F Sport, IS 300 EX and the IS 300 Hybrid EX. The changes include the addition of the 15-speaker Mark Levinson setup in the Hybrid and F Sport, the F Sport gains improved LED headlamps and a rear sunshade. There's also a new paint finished called Manganese Luster.

The Lexus NX range consists of the NX 300 EX, NX 300h EX, NX 300h SE and NX 300 F Sport. The updates include: The F Sport and SE hybrid get updated LED lamps as well as an LED adaptive high beam system, SE Hybrid gains headlamps cleaners, headlamp levelling, power-enabled rear boot and auto re-retractable side mirrors. There are some trim changes and the SE Hybrid gets some wooden dashboard inserts as well as a panoramic sunroof and 60:40 power-adjustable second-row seats. Both the F Sport and SE hybrid models now come standard with the Lexus Safety System which includes Pre-crash System, Lane Trace Assist and Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert. Finally, the NX gains a slightly bigger screen and Android Auto/Apple CarPlay connectivity.

The sporty Lexus RC receives the least updating as a new version of the vehicle was launched about a year ago. However, it gets an electronic parking brake and a 17-speaker Mark Levinson Sound System, as well as Android Auto/Apple CarPlay connectivity.

The flagship LS sedan is available in two derivatives – the LS 500 and LS 500 F Sport. It gains Cruise Control: Adaptive Cruise Control - All Speed (previously High Speed only) and the Lane Keeping Assist have been improved.
