- The IS model punches up, taking on German rivals.
The most track-tested Lexus IS ever boasts an arsenal of ways to connect to and command the road like never before. The IS interior design is as unmistakable as the exterior, with a driver-focused arrangement and admirable materials.
2020 IS lineup includes a Blackline edition that brings dark exterior elements and blue interior bits. There’s a turbocharged four-cylinder, two versions of the V-6, and a six- or eight-speed automatic transmission.
Every IS features steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters. The IS all-wheel drive models are equipped with a six-speed automatic transmission, while rear-wheel drive models boast the same quick-shifting, eight-speed Sport Direct-Shift transmission used in Lexus F models.
Tested and tuned on six iconic tracks, including the Fuji Speedway, the IS includes added performance enhancements that help create an unprecedented visceral connection to the road.
IS 350 RWD is unleashed, it can rocket from 0 to 60 in 5.6 seconds. Advanced tuning enhances fuel efficiency, while weight reduction was achieved by using advanced casting techniques and shaving off material, down to the micron.
