Lexus IS 300

WHAT’S NEW IN 2020 LEXUS IS 300


Lexus IS 300 Turbocharged

TURBOCHARGED IS 300 RWD

Touch the throttle and Lexus IS 300 RWD’s 2.0-litre twin-scroll turbocharged 4-cylinder puts 241 HP and 258 lb.-ft. of torque6 at your command, while the steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters invite you to take control. IS 300 AWD and 350 AWD add an extra dose of exhilaration with a 3.5-litre naturally aspirated V6 — that generates 260 HP on IS 300 and 311 HP IS 350.

Lexus IS AWD

ENHANCED HANDLING WITH AWD

No matter what the road or the weather brings your way, IS’s advanced All Wheel Drive system is there to help maintain control. Depending on the situation, the system automatically allocates engine power between the front and rear axles to help you maintain superior traction without ever sacrificing drivability. Available on IS 300 and IS 350.

Drive Mode Select

DRIVE MODE SELECT

Drive Mode Select lets you tune your ride to suit your mood or the moment with the simple turn of a dial. Choose ECO for increased fuel efficiency, Normal for an optimal balance of efficiency and performance, or Sport for added exhilaration. Lexus IS F SPORT packages add to the adrenaline rush with Sport S/S+ modes that bring faster gear changes, and reduced body roll.

IS Suspension

PERFORMANCE-TUNED SUSPENSION

IS’s suspension systems are track tested on some of the world’s most iconic race tracks to ensure superior ride and handling, and elevate your connection to the road. Up front, the double wishbone is engineered for sway rigidity. The rear multi-link helps increase rear grip. IS 350 AWD F SPORT Packages add Adaptive Variable Suspension (AVS) that adjusts the damping force of the shock absorbers in response to driver input and road conditions. All models are supported by Vehicle Dynamic Integrated Management (VDIM), that can take steps to help prevent a skid even before it occurs.

F Sport

Sporty Exterior

SPORTY IS EXTERIOR

The 2020 IS channels its athletic prowess from every angle. The bold spindle grille is flanked by air intakes that clearly announce IS’ performance-focused intent. Auto-levelling LED headlamps fuse effortlessly into a character line that runs the length of the silhouette, imparting the impression of a vehicle in motion, even when standing still. IS 300 RWD and IS 300 AWD feature large 17” alloy wheels. While IS 350 AWD features 18” alloys, a dynamic “L-shaped” 3 LED headlamp design, and a power moonroof to let more of the world in on the ride.

Interior

THOUGHTFULLY ENHANCED

IS’ interior is thoughtfully and intelligently designed to engage your senses and enhance your command and control. The gauge cluster reinforces the sense that you’re seated in the true cockpit. An available 10.3” high resolution multimedia monitor redefines the art of at-a-glance information transfer. Interior colours — including Black Metallic and F SPORT Aluminum provide a final touch of sport-inspired luxury.

Enhanced Ride Comfort

REAR PASSENGER COMFORT

Our most thrilling IS yet is also one of our most accommodating. Generous interior dimensions and uniquely shaped seat backs offer rear seat passengers plenty of room to relax, complete with amenities like a fold down centre armrest and multiple cup holders.
