About IS

Lexus strategically-created the IS sedan in 2001 as a competitor to the popular small sport sedans becoming to German luxury car companies. Built upon a compact rear-wheel drive platform, the 2001 Lexus IS 300 wore a sporty exterior appearance and featured a 3.0-liter V-6 engine producing 215 horsepower. While the sedan body style would be the backbone design for the IS, Lexus introduced a SportCross wagon model in 2002. The practically-minded IS 300 SportCross would remain in production until the sedan's second generation redesign in 2006. Optional all-wheel drive was part of the second generation Lexus IS range. The small sedan's inclusion of a 5.0-liter V-8 engine under a domed hood would bring a new high-performance mark to the IS line. The 416-horsepower Lexus IS F featured sensational rear-wheel drive momentum equipped with sport-tailored bodywork, lowered suspension, 19-inch BBS wheels and Brembo braking. Produced from 2008 to 2014, acceleration from 0 to 60 miles per hour for the IS F can be recorded in 4.6 seconds. From 2010 to 2015, the Lexus IS lineup also featured a two-door convertible body style. Equipped with a power-retractable hardtop roof, the four-passenger Lexus IS C was available with a 2.5-liter V-6 or 3.5-liter V-6 engine. A third generation IS arrived in 2014 gaining a curvy new look and Lexus' new grille. For 2017, the Lexus IS range received a front and rear exterior restyle as well as minor interior make-over that includes standard LED headlights and Lexus Safety System+ on all trim levels.
