The Car

16 May 2001

The 16-inch, five-spoke alloy wheels are standard

Power tilt and slide moonroof and rear spoiler are options

Four-wheel double wishbone suspension has a multi-link at the rear

Airbags are mounted in the steering wheel, passenger dash and front doors

The parking brake is foot-operated

The boot capacity of 515-litres is more than 10 per cent bigger than BMW's 528i

The interior features two-tone trim, heated and powered front seats with memory. American leather seats and door trim is complemented by large areas of satin-finish wood grain

In the Lexus tradition, the car features a light-emitting silhouette meter display, now set within a three-gauge cockpit-style instrument cluster.

The wood and leather gear lever crests the new five-speed gate-type shifter

Rear centre armrest features dual cupholders

The brake pedal is designed to move down and break away from the driver's feet in the event of a serious accident

Local spec cars have a unique final drive ratio, developed for our driving conditions and improved acceleration

The 3.0-litre, twin cam, multi-valve straight six is the first luxury car in Australia with intelligent, infinitely variable valve timing, dubbed VVTi

The longitudinally-mounted engine develops 166kW at 6000rpm and 298Nm of torque at 4000rpm

Vehicle stability control provides traction in cornering and works in conjunction with ABS and traction control

High intensity discharge headlamps provide a brighter, whiter light on low-beam
