2021 Lexus IS Review

Overview
This is what every luxury sport sedan strives to be. The Lexus IS blends creature comfort with raw adrenaline to create a driving experience like no other. Choose from two styles: The IS 300 and the IS 350 F-Sport. Both are available with Rear- or All-Wheel Drive. Powerplants range from a 241-horse twin-scroll-turbocharged inline four to a 311-horse V-6. Add the available Dynamic Handling Package and you’ve got a car built for fun. The Lexus Multimedia System brings Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration3 to an eight-inch touchscreen. Dynamic Voice Command lets you keep your hands on the wheel and Lexus Enform Remote4 turns your smartphone into a remote-control for your IS. Lexus Safety System Plus 2.55 uses radar and cameras to help keep you out of trouble. It’s just one of the reasons the IS earned a Five-Star Overall Safety Rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Choose from a variety of colors options and accessories and build an IS that’s all yours. The Lexus IS. Elegant performance.
Technology
Your Lexus IS is ready to keep you connected. The Lexus Multimedia System brings Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration to an eight-inch touchscreen. Dynamic Voice Command lets you keep your hands where they belong—on the steering wheel. Use Amazon Alexa to start your car when you’re at home or turn on your living-room lights while you’re driving your IS. Mark Levinson provides an available premium surround-sound audio system. And what’s that in the dashboard? It’s an analog clock for that added touch of class. The Lexus IS. Unprecedented connectivity.
Safety
Every Lexus IS comes with the radar- and camera-based driver-assist features of ALexus Safety System Plus 2.5. All-Speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control Pedestrian Detection Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist4— it all adds up to a Five-Star Overall Safety Rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. If there’s a car—or pedestrian—in front of you your IS can slow and even stop itself in some cases3. DIf you start to drift out of your lane your IS can let you know—and can take corrective action if you don’t. The Lexus IS. Game-changing safety.
Performance
Extreme confidence. That’s the Lexus IS. First pick your engine. Powerplants range from a 241-horse twin-scroll-turbocharged inline four1 to a 311-horse V-6. Next choose rear- or all-wheel drive. Add the F-Sport’s tuned suspension or get Adaptive Variable Suspension with the Dynamic Handling Package. Now you’ve got a car that’s built for fun. Feeling frisky? Turn the Drive Mode Select dial to Sport. You can make up for it later by turning the dial back to Eco for a while. The Lexus IS. It’s ready to make you smile.
