With the manufacturer’s signature hourglass grill and arrowhead-shaped headlamps, the Lexus IS is quite the head turner.

The innovative Lexus Sedan has entered its third generation with a bang with a bold, sexy and modern new design, and for 2016, the 2016 Lexus IS even receives the turbo treatment.

The 2016 Lexus IS is Ready to Command the Road

With the manufacturer’s signature hourglass grill and arrowhead-shaped headlamps, the Lexus IS is quite the head turner. Revamped two years ago, it boasts a design that has yet to age. The aggressive front portion is balanced by a simpler, elegant silhouette that ends on a dynamic rear end with dramatic taillights and strong character lines. The cockpit oozes luxury with contrasting stitching on the seats and sleek dashboard lines elegantly nestling the infotainment touchscreen and an analog clock.

Three versions of the Lexus IS are available, the IS 200t, giving the IS its first turbo engine, as well as the IS 300 AWD and 350 AWD. The turbo engine, a 2.0L, 4-cylinder power outlet produces 241 hp, is teamed with an 8-speed Sport Direct Shift automatic transmission, in a rear-wheel drive layout. Both the 300 and the 350 come with standard all-wheel drive and a 255-hp, 3.5L V6 engine.

As a Toyota sub-brand, Lexus will of course provide standard safety technologies you can rely on, including blind spot monitor and rear cross traffic alert. Offered on the higher trim levels and as part of the optional packages, you can also count on a rearview camera, pre-collision system, and lane departure alert.

The list of technologies wouldn’t be complete without mentioning all the entertainment and convenience features available on the IS, that include, among other things, a heated steering wheel with paddle shifters and audio controls, dual zone climate control, satellite radio, heated and ventilated seats, navigation, in-dash DVD, power moonroof and the smart key with push button start. If those don’t satisfy the tech savvies out there, the F SPORT series adds a flight of features and accessories to up the ante on the sport sedan.

A Comfortable Driving Experience Anywhere

On the road, the 2016 Lexus IS feels tight and poised. On the other hand, it also proves quite comfortable even on broken roads while also remaining quiet even at highway speeds. That combination of sportiness and refinement has helped the vehicle stand out since launch as the perfectly balanced sport sedan.

The team at Lexus of Kingston is ready to give you a tour of the 2016 Lexus IS to see everything the exciting sedan has to offer, whether you prefer the turbocharged or the V6 version, without or without the F SPORT package.
