What’s New for the 2017 IS?

  • The new 2017 IS has been restyled with new sport front & rear bumpers, integrated exhaust design.
  • New LED Headlamps are now standard.
  • Lexus Safety System+ & Rain Sensing Wipers are standard.
  • Larger 10.3” Navigation Screen.
  • Redesigned interior with improved materials & ergonomics.


Engineered for exhilaration, Lexus IS lets you indulge your passion for performance with a choice of three dynamic powertrains: a 241 horsepower turbocharged 4-cylinder mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission; a 255 horsepower V6 or a 306 horsepower V6 mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission with multi-mode shifter.


With a chassis rigid enough to withstand G-force manoeuvres, a low centre of gravity, and specially-tuned front and rear suspension systems, IS responds to your commands and keeps you intimately connected to the road. IS 350 equipped with F SPORT packages delivers an even more visceral response with an adaptive variable suspension (AVS) that adjusts vehicle performance to match driving conditions. 


Slip behind the wheel and find yourself in an exceptionally driver-focused environment. Switches and controls are close at hand. Gauges are positioned for at-a-glance read-outs, including a new and available 10.3” multimedia display with high resolution monitor.


To its already enviable list of safety equipment, the new IS adds Lexus Safety System+. Standard on every model, LSS+ combines four of our most advanced active safety technologies - Pre-Collision System, Lane Departure Alert (LDA) with Steering Assist, Automatic High Beam (AHB) and Dynamic Radar Cruise Control – to enhance your peace of mind on every journey.
