Refreshed Lexus IS to Debut Next Week in China

A refreshed Lexus IS sedan will make its debut at the 2016 Beijing Motor Show next week.

The Japanese luxury automaker has released the above teaser image showing off the refreshed Lexus IS getting updated headlights and what appears to be a more aggressive front end. According to Lexus, the refreshed IS “will bring exciting breakthroughs based on the Lexus signature L-finesse design philosophy.”

It’s easy to see that Lexus will integrate its triple-L headlights to the IS sedan and it will likely draw inspiration from the new LC coupe.
