The Lexus GS 450h hybrid has been given styling and technical upgrades, and the range has been trimmed down to two models.

Styling upgrades
All new models get a new front grille, modified rear lamp clusters with larger lenses, while SE-L versions get a new style of 18-inch alloy wheel.

Inside, there's new Venaro Grey leather upholstery with maple wood trim.

There are also three new exterior colours available: Atlantic Blue, Richmond Green and Vanilla Mist.

Lexus has also rationalised the GS 450h range, which now comprises two trim grades of SE and SE-L. Entry-level SE trim starts at 43,035, while the range-topping SE-L model costs 50,185.

Safety upgrades
The GS 450h has had its pre-crash safety system upgraded to now include pre-crash brake technology. This adds to its pre-crash seatbelt and brake assist functions. Active headrests are also new to the equipment list.
