The fresh evolution of the IS compact sedan builds on the inspired character and distinctive spirit of the IS as Lexus’s original sports-focused sedan.
Pure sports driving pleasure is a core strand of the IS’s DNA, a heart-moving expression of the fun-to-drive philosophy experienced each time you get behind the wheel.
The foundation for the IS’s agile sports handling, stability and smooth ride comfort is a lightweight body structure with outstanding rigidity and vibration damping characteristics.
The dynamic linear acceleration of the lightweight and compact 8-Speed SDS delivers smooth shift feeling and superb drivability, together with excellent fuel efficiency and outstanding quietness.
Aero stabilizing fins on the front doorframe covers and rear combination lamps contribute to handling stability and road tracking performance, while aero stabilizing fins on the underbody help smooth airflow.
The engine combines a compact high-efficiency twin scroll turbocharger with an Atkinson Cycle engine with Dual VVT-i to deliver exhilarating driving performance and excellent fuel efficiency.
Drive mode select provides integrated control of multiple systems to let you tune performance to suit your driving style, including three driving modes: Normal, Eco, Sport Modes.
The Lexus pursuit of perfection finds its finest expression in the master craftsmanship of the Takumi.
The bold lines and layered structure of the L-shaped rear combination lamps exude tension, emphasizing the IS’s bold wide stance.
Refinement that express the continuing evolution of the IS as a premium sports sedan include the adoption of rectangular chrome exhaust pipes that accentuate its sporting nature.
The Bi-Beam LED headlamps switch between low and high beam to generate a bright light for excellent visibility at night, while reducing power consumption.
Heat and ventilated seats use an integrated blower-type fan that provides quick and powerful performance for driver’s seat and front passenger’s seat.
Switches integrated in the steering wheel provide quick control of the multimedia systems without taking your hands off the wheel.
Fold-down rear seatbacks combine with the ample trunk space to provide versatile and flexible luggage carrying capacity.
Enhancing driving pleasure, the IS integrates advanced active and passive safety measures to help assist safe driving and give peace of mind.
The IS features dual-stage SRS airbags (Front seats), SRS knee airbags (Front seats), SRS side airbags (Front seats), and SRS curtain shield airbags (Front and rear door windows).
The Pop Up Hood helps to provide pedestrian protection in the event of a frontal collision. When the sensors mounted in the front bumper determine that the vehicle has collided with a pedestrian, the hood instantly pops up to create a space to absorb the impact force.
Captivating and sophisticated, the evocative exterior colors and stylish color and trim combinations in the cabin radiate strength and dynamism, reinforcing the IS’s sporty luxury appeal.
