The Lexus GS 450h facelift made its debut at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show. It comes with a different grille, 3 new exterior colours and several safety improvements.

It's that time again when the Lexus GS 450h gets a new look and some upgrades. This 2010 model year announced at Frankfurt gets an additional three new exterior colours, a new front grille with a series of horizontal bars of varying sizes, larger rear light outer lenses and a new 18-inch alloy wheel for the SE-L model.

Safety has been improved with the use of pre-crash brake technology and new inflator-operated active headrests. The remainder of the interior features a new hybrid-blue backlit stop/start button and grey bird's eye maple wood grain trim, 10-speaker or 14-speaker (Mark Levinson) sound systems and a satellite navigation system with a 40GB hard drive among others.

The GS 450h has a 3.5-litre V6 petrol engine working side by side with the Lexus Hybrid System. Full system power is 254kW (345hp) from which an average fuel consumption figure of 35.8mpg is achieved. C02 emissions are 186g/km.

UK prices and specifications will be released closer to the launch date.
