Choosing the Right Lexus IS Model
Lexus differentiates the IS models by their drivetrain, with different styles and enhancements bolstering each IS.
Lexus IS 300
Standard on the Lexus IS 300/IS 300 F SPORT is a 241-horsepower 2.0-liter turbocharged engine mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission. If you choose an all-wheel-drive IS 300, you will enjoy a more powerful 260-horsepower V6 engine, which delivers better traction thanks to its AWD technology.
Every IS comes with LED headlamps, taillamps, and daytime running lights, plus a power moonroof, which lets the light in on a bright sun-soaked afternoon. The bold design of those available premium triple-beam headlamps, by the way, includes available Intelligent High Beams, which switch to low beam when another vehicle is sensed. Best of all, you don’t even need to intervene.
The full-color LCD multi-information display in the gauge cluster provides a wealth of vehicle data in an instant. You’ll be able to see performance data like drive mode, gear position, and odometer information. The in-dash display also offers multimedia synchronization, so you’re able to view an incoming phone call, a song title, and a whole lot more.
One of the available styles of this car is the Lexus IS 300 F SPORT. This includes the IS 300 features and adds in:
- F SPORT suspension tuning
- F SPORT bolstered heated and ventilated front seats
- Aluminum pedals
- F SPORT exterior styling including front bumper and grille
- F SPORT 18-inch alloy wheels
Lexus IS 350
The IS 350 delivers impressive horsepower with a larger 3.5-liter V6 engine that produces 311 horsepower. The technology inside the engine makes a difference, enhancing fuel efficiency and reducing weight by using forward-thinking casting techniques. This V6 engine is available in either rear-wheel or all-wheel-drive.
