New customers of models from the Lexus IS range will have the opportunity to enhance their vehicles with an optional technology pack, the manufacturer has announced.

The flagship Premier editions of the IS 250 and full hybrid IS 300h will be eligible for the new pack, which features a range of advanced safety features and driving aids on top of the cars' standard specifications.

Core among these are the Pre-Crash Safety (PCS) system, Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Lane Departure Assist and Automatic High Beam technologies.

The PCS component features a millimetre-wave radar sensor to detect obstacles within a 20-degree radius of the front of the car, using data such as speed, angle and yaw to determine whether a collision can be averted. If not, safety precautions such as Pre-Crash Seatbelt pretensioners and Brake Assist are deployed automatically.

ACC ensures that the Lexus IS matches its speed to that of the car in front, accelerating to the preferred cruising speed once the road ahead is clear.

The new technology pack will be available at £1,540 on top of the car's on-the-road price.ADNFCR-2576-ID-801600326-ADNFCR
