2017 Lexus IS: The 2017 IS is Lexus' answer to entry-luxury compact sports sedans such as the Acura TSX, Audi A4, BMW 3-Series, and Buick Regal. This five-seat sports sedan offers three engine choices and rear-wheel or all-wheel drive options. The most notable changes for 2017 are new standard safety features and a new multimedia system. The IS line is divided into IS 200t, IS 300 AWD, and IS 350 trims.
The three available engines include a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that makes 241 horsepower (IS 200t), a 3.5-liter V6 that makes 255 horsepower (IS 300 AWD) and a 3.5-liter V6 that makes 306 horsepower (IS 350). The IS 200t is rear-wheel drive, the IS 300 AWD is all-wheel drive and the IS 350 is available with either rear- or all-wheel drive. The IS 200t and the rear-wheel drive IS 350 are equipped with an eight-speed automatic transmission, while the IS 300 AWD and the all-wheel drive version of the IS 350 use a six-speed automatic transmission. EPA-estimated fuel economy ranges from 19 mpg city to 32 mpg highway, and all models offer an F Sport package that's meant to enhance driving performance.
Available features include moonroof, push-button start, heated front seats, cooled front seats, heated steering wheel, Bluetooth, satellite radio, premium audio, USB, navigation, infotainment system, parking assist, adaptive cruise control, and leather interior trim.
