2021 Lexus IS

The new 2021 IS, which is expected to arrive in dealerships in late fall of this year is the fantastic next chapter of Lexus’ book of compact luxury sports sedans. It is hard to believe that it was almost 20 years ago that the IS debut in the U.S. and quickly gained recognition for its exhilarating driving performance in a true rear-wheel-drive luxury sports sedan.

World Premier

Now tested and developed at their new technical center in Shimoyama, Japan which signals a change in Lexus’ traditional product development course and exemplifies the brand’s commitment to its human-centered commitment. Lexus’ country road test course is inspired by their many years of experience driving on Germany’s Nürburgring a track that is famous throughout the world for its grueling driving conditions.

On first at the IS the once notices the newly designed spindle grille which features a three-dimensional, polyhedral structure originating from the foremost tip of the grille to emphasizes a sense of looming presence. On the F SPORT model shown here, the block forms based on a spindle motif combine with a mesh pattern to achieve a sporty impression. The F SPORT models also feature a grille-bottom air intake that allows air to flow through to assist in cooling the brakes, a design inspired by the RC F. Standard IS models feature a new grille that includes mini spindles within its design. This intricate pattern required six different types of cutting tools to create the mold.

Luxury and Performance

Luxury and performance are not necessarily mutually exclusive on this IS, and inside the fine appointments harmonize with the sleek and performance-focused design outside. The interior features standard NuLuxe®-trimmed seating, with 10-way power driver and 8-way power-adjustable front passenger seats, a dual-zone automatic climate control system with touch-sensitive controls, an available power moonroof, and SmartAccess with push-button start. Until our first drive and review visit, Lexus for more details about 2021 IS.
