2016 Lexus IS

2016 LEXUS IS: Exciting news from Lexus is that the IS luxury sport sedan enters the 2016 model year with a three models, the IS 200t, IS 300 AWD, and IS 350. The former IS 250 and IS 250 AWD have been discontinued. A popular "fun-in-the-sun" vehicle from Lexus is the IS 250 C that delivers the best of the coupe and convertible worlds. On top of that, the IS adds engines and receives a turbocharged gas engine, bringing the number of engine alternatives to three. Performance-oriented drivers have their choice of rear-wheel drive (RWD), all-weather drive (AWD) and F SPORT variants. The new IS 200t RWD features a 241-horsepower 2.0-liter twin-scroll turbocharged inline four-cylinder engine with intercooler paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Lexus offers the IS 300 AWD with 255- hp from its modified 3.5-liter V-6 engine paired to a six-speed automatic transmission. The IS 350 delivers dazzling performance from a 3.5-liter V-6 that produces 306 hp. Its eight-speed, sport direct shift automatic transmission integrates advanced G-force artificial intelligence system to choose gears intuitively. Or, shift yourself with the paddle shifters. Lexus continues to offer the IS 350, in both RWD and AWD models. The coupe's retractable three-panel aluminum hardtop disappears beneath a locking panel with no need for the driver to secure a tonneau cover or hold-down snaps. Within the elegant cabin is Lexus display audio or remote touch-controlled navigation-multimedia systems, and the IS becomes the first model to offer a subscription-free, real-time traffic and weather information on its integrated audio system. Available technology includes blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert and lane-departure warning. New to the IS is the standard, lockable 60/40 split/folding rear seats, a 13.8-cu.ft trunk (10.8-cu.ft.convertible) and the industry first subscription-free traffic and weather on all multimedia systems. Ask about the F Sport package that sharpens handling acuity and an intake sound generator that creates a more sporting engine note.
