Features & Specs: 2021 Lexus IS

About 20 years ago, the luxury sports sedan was reimagined with the release of the Lexus IS. The top sports sedan title had been held by one German brand until the Lexus IS was announced. The immensely popular sports sedan is known amongst the car world for its extraordinary driving performance. The sports sedan field is as competitive as ever and we knew that good enough won’t make the cut. ‘The relentless pursuit of perfection’ meant that the Lexus IS had to be better than ever, and it is. Let’s take a in-depth look at the brand-new Lexus IS.

2021 Lexus IS

IS: Performance

For the performance-minded drivers, the allure of the 2021 IS comes from the high horsepower and rear-wheel drive capabilities of the F SPORT. It really is a calling card of the Lexus IS and we’ll get back to it in a moment, but first let’s talk about what else the Lexus IS can do. The standard engine is a 2.0L turbocharged inline 4-cylinder is paired with an 8 speed automatic transmission, that can create 241hp and 258 lb-ft of torque at its peak performance. And is able to get up to 30 miles per gallon on the highway. An optional engine is a 3.5L V6 that creates 236 lb-ft of torque and 260 hp, it is connected to a six-speed automatic transmission and option for AWD or RWD. RWD can get up to 28mpg on the highway, AWD can get up to 26mpg. The F SPORT also comes standard with a 3.5L V6 but it is tuned to perfection to push out 280 lb-ft of torque and 311hp. That means you can take off from 0-60 in just 5.6 seconds but still expect to get 24mpg on the highway. Mercy.

2021 Lexus IS design


The brand-new 2021 Lexus IS may resemble the previous model to a certain degree, you will definitely notice the all-new headlights, wheel options, and taillights. The optional triple-beam LED headlights will be sure to make sure you can see the long road ahead, while the L-shaped blade-style lightbar sitting on the rear of the sedan will be a pleasant sight for those left behind. 18-inch wheels come standard on the Lexus IS, with the F SPORT getting 19-inch wheels for the first time. Climb inside and you’ll find an available power moonroof, NuLuxe-trimmed seating, 10-way power drive seat, push button start, and dual-zone automatic climate control.

2021 Lexus IS Technology

Some features also compatible with the 10.3-inch screen are Google Maps, Google Assistant, Navigation, Android Auto, Amazon Alexa, Apple CarPlay©, and more. The technology upgrades aren’t just limited to the stereo either, now standard on the 2021 Lexus IS is the Lexus Safety Suite+ 2.5. This impressive slew of safety features includes Bicyclist Detection, Lane Departure Alert, and All-Speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control|Emergency Steering Assist, Automatic Emergency Braking, and Front Crash Warning just to name a few.

Isidoro "Izzy" Sisneros (along with Peter Brown from the Finance department) assisted me with the purchase of a brand new 2021 ES350. I couldn't be more pleased with the entire process. I had to order my car due to the colors and trim line not being available at the time. I was never pressured to get another vehicle in inventory; I was only accommodated every step of the way. In the end, I got exactly what I wanted. I am a second time buyer from Sterling McCall Lexus Clear Lake, and most likely a lifetime one. They are ...

Audrey Mickens was our sales representative and she done an excellent job. She was very professional with the knowledge and know how of practicing her craft. She continued to keep us the customers in mind as to what we wanted and were looking for. She allowed us to lead while she just followed, as to not recommending what she thought we wanted. She was just a genuine down to earth person. She really done an amazing job that my wife and I were very well pleased with.
