2021 Lexus IS Walk Around
Finding the perfect balance of sportiness and sophistication is no easy task, but the 2021 Lexus IS walks that fine line with an air of elegance and effortlessness. Make no mistake: Careful craftmanship and countless hours of testing have gone into making this the best IS to date. With a lineage that spans more than 20 years in the U.S., the IS has always remained true to its foundation as a front-engine rear-wheel-drive sports sedan. For 2021, the IS will expand upon the qualities that have built its loyal following while also ushering in the new Lexus Driving Signature. For 2021, the IS will have a starting MSRP of $39,000. One of the biggest changes to the lineup is that F SPORT models will only be offered on 350. Subsequently, all 350s will only be offered in F SPORT grade. The starting price of the of 350 F SPORT is $42,900, offering customers a 311-horsepower F SPORT that is closer in line with the outgoing IS 300 F SPORT pricing. The new 2021 IS is expected to arrive in dealerships in October of this year.
As part of the rigorous design, development and testing process of the all-new Nissan Qashqai, one of the criteria to be satisfied is that of the interior scent. The so-called “new car smell” is a key characteristic of any newly purchased vehicle and Nissan’s engineers work hard to ensure that it is just right, recognising that it’s an important ingredient in the pride of new car ownership for buyers. Peter Karl Eastland is Odour Evaluation Lead Engineer, based at Nissan Technical Centre Europe. His unassuming job title doesn’t reflect what a unique and perhaps surprising role he plays in the development of Nissan’s European range of vehicles. The most recent example of his work can be found on the all-new Nissan Qashqai, which went on sale in Europe in July. Particular attention has been paid to elevate the all-new Qashqai’s on-board ambience, from the fit and finish, materials including new premium leather, to the user-friendly technology. But the attention to detail in fine-tuning every aspect is reflected in the important role of ensuring the life-on-board experience isn’t compromised by any unappealing odours.
As standard, the S-Class is equipped with Active Parking Assist with a reversing camera, and on request this can be combined with a 360° camera. In the S-Class, all the information from all sensors and cameras is fusioned. This enables more parking spaces to be recognised and offered. Parking spaces defined by lines (not by vehicles) can also be used for automated parking for the first time.
