The new 2022 Lexus IS line combines daring style, uncompromising engineering. There are new upgrades on both the interior and exterior, which includes a state-of-the art digital instrumentation.

With dramatic character lines on the outside—and bold details like accent stitching along the dash and circular air vents reminiscent of jet turbines inside, the IS has an aggressive but fun look to it. 

the IS 350 features a host of visual and performance cues that immediately set it apart, including a unique front bumper with functional aerodynamic enhancements, rear bumper, grille surround, rear lip spoiler, rocker molding and more…they are also equipped with a cool air intake with sound generator and an F SPORT exhaust and diffuser. In addition, unique F SPORT badges adorn the sides of the vehicle as well. The IS comes with rear wheel drive, and all-wheel drive, with your choice of transmissions that include: 8-speed shiftable automatic, 6-speed shiftable automatic.

Inside the IS, you’re greeted with stainless-steel scuff plates that adorn the door sills. Eyes are immediately drawn to the stylish sporty front seat surfaces. The front seats also offer standard heated and ventilated functions. A heated, leather-wrapped steering wheel with unique center ornament, perforated leather-wrapped shifter and F SPORT combination instrumentation meter await the driver, as do unique F SPORT accelerator pedal, brake pedal and footrest. The distinctive front seats offer both two-way power adjustable lumbar support as well as four-way adjustable headrests. Unique F SPORT door accents are highlighted with black geometric film window switch surrounds. Active Sound Control has been improved to further enhance the exhilarating performance notes of the V6 engine while reducing unpleasant tones. The IS interior also 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/stop.

The bold exterior styling of the 2022 IS aims for a provocative design, with muscular fenders that extend to enhance and accommodate the available 19-inch wheels. The wide and low form nods to the inherently high level of driving performance the IS possesses, but the sleek lines are also complemented with overtly aggressive sharpness carved into the side and shoulder character lines. Slender headlamps are fitted on the IS that feature daytime running lights with a sharp L-shape signature that runs across the lateral axis just above the compact and lightweight lamp units. These headlamps help contribute to expressing a low center of gravity through low-positioned areas around the grille, and they are matched by lowered side character lines that carry all the way through to the rear of trunk.
