The Lexus IS
When it comes to sports sedans, you will hear its name.
You know what it has accomplished. The first car to wear the F Performance badge. The car that has challenged the BMW 3-Series – and won. The car that has put Lexus on the radar of many enthusiasts worldwide.
That car is the Lexus IS.
Imagine something beyond your imagination. Holding true to its roots, while taking it to the next level. The next level in performance, design, and driver engagement.
To be the best, it has to look the best
The IS begins with its signature spindle grille. This is the new face of Lexus, luxuriously crafted onto a body that is sporty, elegant and, above all, stylish. The taut design incorporates four doors for access inside, a trunk for all your worldly goods, condensed daytime/nighttime lighting (including available twin projector LED headlamps) and is ready for action anytime.
Step inside a cabin made for up to five people. Seats range from supple Aniline leather to sport seating with perforated leather. Selecting the IS 350 F Sport raises the bar in sport sedan comfort and driver focus with a heavily-bolstered seat design and accents befitting a genuine sports machine.
The dashboard is crafted with accents that are coordinated with the color of the upholstery for the IS 300 and IS 350. Instrumentation is straightforward with a customizable information screen for trip and vehicle readouts.
Choosing the F Sport will get an LFA-inspired TFT instrument cluster that is designed to quicken the pulse by looking at it. An available touchpad-controlled screen is a hub for audio functions, a navigation system, and connectivity with bth Apple CarPlay and Android Auto through an available 10.3-inch screen mounted closer to you.
It is All About Performance
It is the Lexus IS you always dreamed of. Conceived from a brand new Shimoyama proving ground in Japan’s Aichi Prefecture. More than a car, the new 2021 IS set the tone for a new approach to driver engagement and vehicle dynamics called the Lexus Driving Signature. This will serve as a reference for all future Lexus vehicles.
Initially, the Lexus IS will offer three engines: A 241-horsepower 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with rear-wheel-drive for the IS 300 RWD, a 260-horsepower 3.5-liter V6 with all-wheel-drive for the IS 300 AWD, and a 311-horsepower 3.5-liter V6 available in both rear- and all-wheel-drive versions of the IS 350. An F Sport model will be the flagship of the 2021 IS, offering specific grille textures and finishes, along with 19-inch alloy wheels.
To enhance the driving experience a drive mode selector knob can switch the IS 300 from Eco to Sport. IS 350 F Sport models get the Sport S+ setting, where engine, transmission, steering and suspension dampening are dialed in for a canyon-carving driving experience.
Being Safe is a Lexus Priority
A Lexus is built to be safe, with active safety features designed to keep everyone in the vehicle safe. Features include a Pre-Collision System with Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, lane departure alert, a backup camera, Intuitive Parking Assist, blind spot monitor with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert and Smart Stop Technology. To further enhance these technologies, Lexus Enform Safety Connect is available to connect with Lexus if an issue arises with the IS. Enform can also be monitored through its smartphone app.
Pricing for the IS lineup starts at $39,000. Comprehensive packages are available with a level of equipment to turn an IS into an individual’s delight.
In the premium sports sedan world, to be the best means staying on top of the game. To do so, performance and design, plus a pulse-quickening driving dynamic are required to engage the driver through any situation – including those that drive through our vast deserts. At Lexus, the IS has the goods to be the best in its class. It is now time to drive one at Lexus of Las Vegas.
