Lexus has used the Beijing Auto Show to premiere the new IS.

The luxury brand admittedly chose not to give the IS a heavy facelift due to the design’s popularity, or so they say.

The exterior sees slight changes including a new headlight design, revised “spindle” grill, and side bumpers with fog lights.

The compact RWD sedan also receives new and revised technology including a larger display screen (now 10.3 inches, or about 26 cm). Other tech upgrades include enter buttons for the Remote Touch Interface.

Both the exterior and interior gain new colors as well.

All engines remain unchanged and include the recently added 2.0 I-4 Turbo gained from the NX.

Lexus did not reveal when the IS will go on sale.
