Media Advisory: Vision for an urban future - in Vancouver

North American debut of the ultra-compact Lexus LF-SA Concept highlights display of all Lexus models – and more – at the Vancouver International Auto Show, March 23-27 at the Vancouver Convention Centre

TORONTO, March 14, 2016 /CNW/ - Explore the future of the Lexus brand and immerse yourself in luxury levels of design, technology and performance at the 2016 Vancouver International Auto Show. Highlighting the Lexus display is the stylish and provocative LF-SA Concept – a driver-focused, ultra-compact 2+2 luxury model making its North American debut.

"When luxury automakers envision the ultimate driving experience, it typically involves either the wide open road or the closed course racetrack – and those are both thrilling ways to enjoy a Lexus – but we also recognize the need to deliver an ultimate driving experience in the tight spaces and congestion of any world-class city," said Jennifer Barron, Director of Lexus Canada. "The Lexus LF-SA Concept delivers that experience, in a luxury vehicle designed for life in the city of tomorrow."

Highlights at the Lexus display include:

  • The Lexus LF-SA Concept, making its North American debut
  • The all-new, 2016 Lexus GS F and the 2016 Lexus RC F high-performance luxury models
  • New engines for several models, including the turbo-charged IS 200t and the RC 300 AWD
  • The Lexus RX 350, RX 450h and LX 570 – redesigned for 2016 and combining luxury with go-anywhere capability
  • A number of updated models for 2016, including the ES 350, ES 300h, GS 350 AWD and GS 450h.

These models join the full portfolio of Lexus luxury cars and SUVs on display throughout the Vancouver International Auto Show, running March 23-27, 2016.

  • In addition, Lexus will host a Hybrid Ride and Drive Event throughout the show, letting drivers get behind the wheel of a CT 200h, ES 300h, NX 300h or RX 450h to discover the many advantages of advanced, efficient luxury motoring.
