Full reveal expected later today

Lexus has released one final teaser of the 2014 IS, ahead of a full reveal expected later today.

Design will be inspired from the stunning LF-CC concept showed last year in Paris and will ride on a shortened version of the same platform underpinning the GS. It is expected to adopt a tweaked suspension with stiffer anti-roll bars and softer springs.

It will be sold with a V6 2.5-liter engine producing more than 200 hp (149 kW) along with a larger V6 3.5-liter with 300+ hp (224+ kW). Lexus will offer a hybridized 4-cylinder, 2.5-liter rated at about 240 hp (179 kW). The latter will be mated to a CVT which should enable the 2014 IS to perform the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) run in about 6.9 seconds, en route to a top speed of 140 mph (225 km/h). This hybrid is estimated to return 60.7 mpg (73 mpg UK or 3.8 liters / 100 km) with CO2 emissions under the 100 g/km mark.

No diesel engine this time round, the hybrid model will replace it.

big mistake, especially for European sales. that's why the LS 600h doesnt do very well here, buyers end up getting 730/740d, S350 CDI, A8 TDI and XJ diesel instead. The outgoing generation IS diesel, the IS220d and IS200d sold more than the petrol versions

Why a diesel when the hybrid is more efficient.

efficient yes, but also hybrids tend to be a lot more expensive to buy. Unless someone is planning to buy it for the very long term, a diesel is much more 'wallet friendly' and almost as efficient.
