Illuminate the Night
IS’s visibly pronounced LED headlamps confidently carve a path through the night. The eye-catching design blends seamlessly into a wind-cheating silhouette, creating the impression of a vehicle in constant motion.
Engineered for Exhilaration
Engineered for exhilaration, Lexus IS lets you indulge your passion for performance with a choice of three dynamic powertrains: a 241 horsepower turbocharged 4-cylinder mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission; a 255 horsepower V6 or a 306 horsepower V6 mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission with multi-mode shifter.
With a chassis rigid enough to withstand G-force manoeuvres, a low centre of gravity, and specially-tuned front and rear suspension systems, IS responds to your commands and keeps you intimately connected to the road. IS 350 equipped with F SPORT packages delivers an even more visceral response with an adaptive variable suspension (AVS) that adjusts vehicle performance to match driving conditions.
The 2017 IS adds the rich lustre of Nightfall Mica and Caviar to its list of striking exterior finishes, alongside F SPORT exclusives like Obsidian and Ultrasonic Blue Mica 2.0Explore the IS Model Lineup
Slip behind the wheel and find yourself in an exceptionally driver-focused environment. Switches and controls are close at hand. Gauges are positioned for at-a-glance read-outs, including a new and available 10.3” multimedia display with high resolution monitor.
To its already enviable list of safety equipment, the new IS adds Lexus Safety System+. Standard on every model, LSS+ combines four of our most advanced active safety technologies - Pre-Collision System, Lane Departure Alert (LDA) with Steering Assist, Automatic High Beam (AHB) and Dynamic Radar Cruise Control – to enhance your peace of mind on every journey.
Touch the throttle, and F SPORT serves up performance that engages all of your senses. Power that comes to life before your eyes in the LFA-inspired adaptive tachometer with liquid crystal; and that you can hear, in the menacing growl of a specially tuned exhaust.
The 2017 IS takes a daring new styling direction, starting with an aggressive interpretation of Lexus’ signature spindle grille flanked by large air intakes. IS’s performance-oriented intent is front and centre.
F SPORT packages incorporate an exclusive 3-dimensional F-mesh grille pattern with jet-black metallic coating and encompass functional brake ducts, enhancing both aerodynamic performance and aggressive outlook.
IS’ emotional design is evident in pronounced “L”-shaped LED guides that are now triple layered within the taillight housing, and a more aerodynamic lower rear bumper. F SPORT packages feature an exclusive bumper design – with F-mesh grille cues – that further smooths airflow for a quieter cabin and improved control at higher speeds.
Drive mode select lets you tune performance to match your mood or the needs of the moment, with the simple twist of a dial. Choose ECO to maximize efficiency, or Sport to enhance exhilaration. F SPORT packages bring an additional setting, Sport S+, to set both IS and your heart racing a little faster.
