NEW GS 300 HELPS LEXUS MARCH SALES TOP FEBRUARY LEVELS

 TORRANCE, Calif., April 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Lexus March sales of 8,207, aided by the introduction of the new GS 300, were up 18.6 percent, compared to February, according to sales figures released today by the luxury division of Toyota Motor Sales U.S.A. Inc.
 It was the second straight month Lexus sales increased on a month-to-month basis. Sales continue to trail year-ago levels, however.
 "The overall market, and the luxury market in particular, remain sluggish compared to last year," said George Borst, Lexus group vice president and general manager. "But we continue to see improvement on a month-to-month basis. The final 10 days of the month were very strong with sales up more than 20 percent from last March."
 The ES 300 led the way in March, with sales of 3,261, followed by the LS 400 at 2,083, GS 300 1,527 and sport coupe models at 1,336.
