2001 Lexus Ratings, Reviews and Awards

The luxury car division of Toyota, Lexus decided to dip its toes into the entry-level market in 2001 with the introduction of the IS 300 sedan. Designed to go head to head with other luxury sedans such as the BMW 3 Series and the Audi A4, the IS 300 is a four-door vehicle with RWD and a 3.0-liter inline-six-cylinder engine. Although an entry-level model, the 2001 IS 300 is nicely equipped with keyless entry, air conditioning, heated seats, and cruise control. Along with getting into the entry-level market, Lexus made a few updates to its flagship sedan, the LS 430, in 2001. The new LS 430 is taller and has a longer wheelbase than its predecessor (the LS 400). It also has dynamic laser cruise control, which adjusts vehicle speed based on the car's distance from other vehicles. A new engine, a 4.3-liter V8, is available on both 2001 LS 430 models and 2001 GS 430 models.
