We have here a compact luxury sedan that stands out as much in terms performance than in terms of comfort. Fun to drive and able to turn heads without difficulty, the IS is the kind of vehicle that attracts consumers looking for a vehicle that offers a little bit of everything.
The IS was always able to set itself apart in the comfort department, and will get back to that, but since the redesign of the model last year, the IS is also able to impress in terms performance. Available in four versions, Lexus IS 250, IS 250 AWD, IS 350 and IS 350 AWD, the Lexus IS offers a little something for all types of buyers. There is also a convertible version for those who want to make the most out of summer.
Visually, the IS is certainly a success. The model shows a dramatic grille that allows it to stand out immediately on the road. If you opt for the F Sport versions, then you get larger, meaner-looking rims and an even more dynamic style. In addition, LED lights shaped like hooks upfront allow the model to proudly display its presence.
Inside, the Lexus IS offers a cabin that is both sporty and modern with its seats offering an impressive level of lateral support, the center console is luxurious, ergonomic and well built, and the digital dashboard will impress your passengers every time. Although much sportier than the model it replaces, the 2015 Lexus IS has still does not deny its comfortable personality on the road. The IS stands out with its stable and composed handling, and suspension settings that properly filter out road imperfections.
Under the hood of the 250 models, we find a four-cylinder, 2.5-liter engine developing 204 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque. Those who want even more impressive performance can opt for the 350 and its 3.5-liter V6 engine that develops an impressive output of 306 horsepower and 277 lb-ft.
Powerful, fun and comfortable, the Lexus IS offers a lot. Come and try it today at Spinelli Lexus Lachine!
