8-SPEED SPORT DIRECT-SHIFT

DRIVE MODE SELECT
Select performance to match your driving style with four drive modes: NORMAL, ECO, SPORT S and SPORT S+.
STOP & START SYSTEM
The engine automatically turns off when your IS stops, so your fuel can be conserved for a longer drive.
ADAPTIVE VARIABLE SUSPENSION
AVS continually adjusts shock-absorber damping rates while driving, delivering the type of smooth ride expected of a Lexus.
The IS slices through air with front bumper air ducts, aero stabilizing fins, a sharpened rear end and vertical lines with airflow funneling.
The IS 300 gives a great deal of grip at high speeds, bolstered by the Electric Power Steering System’s increased responsiveness and smooth steering.
The IS 300 has 13- and 12- inch brakes in the front and rear, respectively, which provide strong stopping power.
EXCLUSIVE TO IS 300
UNDER THE HOOD
The IS 300 is powered by an ultra-smooth 2.0-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine.
Injection is split between the direct and port injectors according to the engine load. This optimizes fuel combustion in all driving situations.
The IS 300's new engine is equipped with a balance shaft featuring resin gears for even greater smoothness.
A QUIETER TURBO
As a turbo engine requires smooth intake flow, Lexus engineers focused on creating special ducts that deliver power without noise.
