TRD Upgrades Lexus IS

/ Comments

Toyota's in-house performance division has revealed some long overdue upgrades for the new Lexus IS.

After Lexus revealed the all-new IS at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show, we thought tuners would be out in force working on aftermarket packages for the third-gen sports sedan. Yet, it's taken until now for us to see some upgrades for the 2014 Lexus IS with a selection of aero parts and chassis enhancements coming courtesy of Toyota Racing Development (TRD). The Japanese performance division's body parts for the new IS includes a front spoiler made up of two parts that bookend the grille, a rear trunk lid spoiler, stylish side sills, a chunky rear diffuser and sports muffler.

Chassis upgrades were limited to a new sports suspension coated in DLC (diamond-like carbon), 19-inch lightweight forged alloys, a member brace and performance damper. TRD has priced the upgrades at around 1.4 million Yen, (approx. $14k) on its Japanese website. Each part is available individually and it's hoped US distributors will soon be offering them.
