The new IS sports Lexus' new design language with the boldest interpretation of the brand's new "spindle grille" that we've seen yet. The headlights feature separate L-shaped daytime running lights, while out back the LED talilights wrap around the rear end.
Inside, the new IS features a driver-centric dashboard with an LFA-inspired design.
The IS will once again be offered in IS 250 and IS 350 trims, but there's also a new IS 300 Hybrid model which won't be sold in the U.S. market. A new F Sport trim will join the lineup and will be available for both the 250 and 350 models.
The IS 250 is powered by a 2.5-liter V-6 engine rated at 200 horsepower, and the IS 350 is powered by a 306-horsepower 3.5-liter V-6. Both engines are paired with the company's eight-speed automatic transmission.
