A WARNING FLASH OF LIGHT

A WARNING FLASH OF LIGHT

When your vehicle is travelling at higher speeds, the need to brake suddenly can create a potentially dangerous situation for any cars behind you.

In the IS, if you need to brake suddenly, the rear LED brake lights will flash rapidly with a pulsing effect which is designed to warn drivers behind you and help to improve their reaction speed.

SYSTEMS THAT 'TALK' TO EACH OTHER

SYSTEMS THAT 'TALK' TO EACH OTHER

Each IS model is fitted with Lexus' advanced Vehicle Dynamics Integrated Management (VDIM)3 which co-ordinates control of the electronic safety features like Vehicle Stability Control (VSC)3 and Anti-lock Brakes System (ABS)3 .

This cooperative control allows for each safety system to 'talk' to the other to share information and to work together to help the driver keep the vehicle on track. 

Surprisingly though, the driver will rarely even know VDIM is working, such is the seamless integration it provides between each safety system.

INNOVATIVE PEDESTRIAN SENSING SAFETY BONNET3

INNOVATIVE PEDESTRIAN SENSING SAFETY BONNET3

The bonnet structure is not only sportier looking, but is designed to alleviate impact in the event of a collision with a pedestrian3.

The vehicle is designed to be able to determine when a pedestrian or other moveable objects has been collided with based on signals from sensors in a polyethylene chamber within the front bumper. In these cases, the bonnet pops up approximately 70mm to provide a cushioning deformation zone and help absorb collision impact.

GREATER VISIBILITY

GREATER VISIBILITY

Enjoy further confidence behind the wheel of the IS when you're parking thanks to the Reversing Camera3 with Rear Guide Assist (RGA)3, which is designed to show you what's behind the rear bumper and designed to predict where the vehicle will go with helpful guidance lines.

HEIGHTENED PROTECTION SURROUNDS YOU

HEIGHTENED PROTECTION SURROUNDS YOU

In the event of an accident, you will feel protected thanks to the ten Supplementary Restraint System (SRS) airbags, a standard feature in the IS

The full complement of ten airbags includes front airbags, front seat knee airbags, seat mounted side airbags and curtain shield airbags designed to protect driver and passengers alike. 

In addition, front and knee airbags for the driver and front passenger are designed to work together to achieve a better distribution of the loads that impact the body during an accident.

TECHNOLOGY THAT LENDS A HAND

TECHNOLOGY THAT LENDS A HAND

When you are stopped at the lights or parked on an upslope, the time it takes you to move your foot from the brake to the accelerator may be enough to allow the vehicle to roll backwards. The inclusion of Hill-start Assist Control (HAC)in the IS is designed to remove this worry.

F SPORT & SPORTS LUXURY

WATCHING OUT FOR YOUR BLIND SPOTS

WATCHING OUT FOR YOUR BLIND SPOTS

It can be difficult in traffic to see if there is another vehicle or motorcycle in the lane next to you so it's good to know these potentially dangerous blind spots are monitored in the IS F Sport and IS 300h Sports Luxury with a Blind Spot Monitor (BSM)3 which is designed to give you added peace of mind.

When a vehicle is detected in a blind spot alongside you, the indicator in the mirror on that side illuminates, which may be particularly helpful when changing lanes.

Meanwhile, Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA)3 is designed to detect vehicles crossing the difficult-to-see area behind the vehicle when reversing, sounding a buzzer and flashing the BSM indicators in the outer mirrors.
