2021 Lexus IS: Specs & Features

About 20 years ago, the luxury sports sedan was relaunched with the launch of the Lexus IS. The top sports sedan title had been held by one German brand until the Lexus IS premiered. The immensely popular sports sedan is known around the world for its extraordinary driving performance. The sports sedan segment is as competitive as ever and we knew that just being good enough won’t make the cut. ‘The relentless pursuit of perfection’ meant that the 2021 IS had to be better than ever, and it is. Let’s take a closer look at the brand-new Lexus IS.

IS: Performance

For performance-minded drivers, the allure of the 2021 Lexus IS comes from the rear-wheel driving capability and high horsepower 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 makes 260hp and 236 lb-ft of torque, it is connected to a six-speed automatic transmission and option for RWD or AWD. And in comparing the miles per gallon, the RWD comes out on top with 28 mpg and 26 mpg for the AWD. The F SPORT also comes standard with a 3.5L V6 but it is tuned to perfection to create 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.

IS: Design Highlights

The brand-new 2021 Lexus IS may resemble the previous model to an extent, your eyes will certainly be drawn to the all-new wheel options, taillights, and headlights. The available triple-beam LED headlights will be sure to light up the street ahead, while the L-shaped blade-style lightbar sitting on the rear of the vehicle will be a pleasant sight for those left in your wake. 18-inch wheels will be standard on the IS, with the F SPORT getting 19-inch wheels for the first time. Climb inside and you will find a 10-way power drive seat (8-way passenger), an available power moonroof, dual-zone automatic climate control, push button start, and NuLuxe-trimmed seating.

This impressive suite of safety features includes Bicyclist Detection, Emergency Steering Assist, and All-Speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control|Emergency Steering Assist, Automatic Emergency Braking, and Front Crash Warning just to name a couple.

I have purchased several vehicles from Sterling McCall and never had a bad experience. Most recently, I purchased a vehicle from Sterling McCall Lexus in Houston and although I ended up returning the vehicle the customer service was amazing. Ray and Hong were very nice and accommodating. Also, the young lady I worked with in Finance (regrettably I can’t remember her name) was very personable and efficient. I highly recommend all Sterling McCall dealerships.

I called Ellen Morgan (Pre-Owned Lexus) 2 weeks ahead, to help me surprise my wife with a RX350 for her birthday. Ellen was very responsive and helpful to make this happen being that I was driving almost 4 hours to surprise her with this gift. This is one of the best experiences, we have had purchasing a vehicle ! The dealership was very fair in my opinion on my trade in price and the sales price. Thank you Ellen for helping make my wife’s birthday wonderful !
