The Lexus GS 450h is getting sportier for the 2015 model year.

The Japanese automaker has announced that it is adding an F Sport package to its luxury hybrid sedan adding 19-inch staggered wheels, an F Sport tuned version of the standard Adaptive Variable Suspension (AVS) with Sport S+ mode and larger front brakes with hi-friction pads. The GS 450h F Sport will also include the four-wheel steering control of the Lexus Dynamic Handling System.

As expected with the rest of the F Sport packages, the GS 450h F Sport will have a unique front bumper with more aggressive styling while the rear lower valence is also sportier. In addition, the front grille gets a mesh insert while the rear gets a classy lip spoiler. For the interior, Lexus will add perforated leather trim and a 16-way power sport driver seat while the rest of the cabin is accented by striated aluminum trim, aluminum pedals and door scuff plates and a black headliner.

The Lexus GS 450h delivers a total system output of 338 hp while returning 29 mpg in the city and 34 mpg on the highway. Unfortunately, Lexus hasn’t released images of the 2015 GS 450h F Sport yet.
