Lexus NZ to add IS350 to growing model range

Lexus New Zealand will add the IS350 sedan to its IS line here in NZ late next year.

The IS350 features a quad-cam 3.5 litre V6 petrol engine, mated to a six-speed sequential transmission. It produces 233kW of power and 378Nm of torque, and propels the 2011 IS350 from standstill to 100km/h in just 5.6 seconds.

This new model further expands the IS line which includes the 2.5 litre IS250 sedan, the 5.0 litre V8 IS F and the IS250 convertible which was launched only last year.

Lexus National Manager, Debbie Pattullo said, “The IS350 is a great addition to the IS Line. It is positioned nicely between the IS250 and the performance flagship IS F, further strengthening Lexus’ performance credentials. We have no doubt that the IS350 will be a very popular vehicle and we are very excited about its launch in New Zealand.  IS350, along with CT200h, will continue to grow Lexus’ product range and our appeal to drivers.”

Full specifications and pricing for the New Zealand IS350 will be confirmed closer to the time of launch in 2010.
