The new luxury 2016 Lexus IS F-Sport US-Version continues to deliver agility and sportiness the Lexus sport sedan models are known for. Existing IS engines are joined by a new turbocharged gas engine. And, variations include the rear-wheel drive (RWD), the all weather drive (AWD), and the F-Sport.
Because the AWD system for inclement weather is so popular that Lexus is offering IS 300 AWD. This packs a punch at 255 horsepower and 236 lb.-ft. torque at 2,000 to 4,800 rpm. This model has a six-speed automatic transmission coupled with a modified 3.5-liter V6 engine.
The IS 350 in RWD and AWD are still being offered by Lexus.
The Lexus IS sedans present an elegant, yet aggressive, bearing in the marketplace. Lexus still has the spindle grille, which makes them so recognizable, as well as LED daytime running lights that are L-themed. The exciting drive these models offer use precision electronic power steering with a smooth multi-link rear suspension delivery. These two features have come from the driving experience of the Lexus GS sedan.
The IS 350 also has a 3.5-liter V6 306 hp engine. The optional IS 350 electronic all-weather drive system help improve grip and handling no matter what the conditions.
The F Sport package gives sharpened handling with its 18-inch wheels and unique suspension tuning. And, the F SPORT has Adaptive Variable Suspension or AVS.
Some of the many terrific features are a high-technology Display Audio system with a seven-inch screen along with Bluetooth and HD Radio. All IS models offer Siri® and other great Apple® technology. There are many more optional equipment choices than shown here from a Pre-Collision System to innovative safety features. And, the IS 350 RWD F SPORT offers the Vehicle Dynamics Integrated Management (VDIM) system.
