Interior features sporty two-tone Black & Gray Ultrasuede trimmed front and rear seats, door accents, and center console. The heated leather-wrapped steering wheel receives unique silver ash wood treatment with black F SPORT Performance badging and the interior will also have a serialized Launch Edition badge highlighting exclusivity.

At the exterior IS 500 F SPORT features 19” seven spoke forged alloy Matte Black BBS wheels, lighter than the standard 19-inch IS F SPORT wheels. The 2022 IS 500 F SPORT Performance and IS 500 F SPORT Performance Launch Edition are expected to reach dealerships by end of this year.
