New Lexus 2021 Lexus IS for Sale in West Springfield, MA

 

 

It’s been nearly 20 years since the Lexus IS debuted stateside, and in that time it has become one of the most popular compact luxury sport sedans on the market. Things are getting exciting in the world of Lexus now, since this next incarnation will be considerably redesigned. The 2021 IS was developed with Lexus Driving Signature, a game-changing design developed almost exclusively on the Toyota Technical Center Shimoyama race-track. It was here where Lexus engineers and researchers developed chassis and suspension improvements that, paired with a more rigid body, create a more engaging drive. Lexus Driving Signature will promote uniformly high standards for handling, ride quality and overall performance across the automaker’s lineup, to ensure every driver’s enjoyment of their Lexus vehicle and uphold the brand’s stellar reputation.

Performance aside, the 2021 IS will also debut a new multimedia layout with an available 10.3-inch touchscreen, and the enhanced Lexus Safety System+2.5 suite of active driver aids will be found standard on all trims. This much-anticipated refresh will bring some interesting changes to a sedan that hasn’t experienced any major updates since 2013. As for when you can expect it to arrive at dealerships, mark your calendars for this autumn.

Power and Performance

Lexus is making the 2021 IS in a trio of trim levels: the 300, the 350, and the 350 F Sport. Rear-wheel drive versions of the 300 have a 241-horsepower turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, but all-wheel drive versions get a 260 hp 3.5-liter V6, as does the 350 trim. Under the hood of the 350 F Sport, that same V6 puts out 311 hp instead, thanks to the performance tuning of that trim. Rear-wheel drive versions of the 2021 Lexus IS 300 and 350 get an eight-speed automatic transmission, and AWD versions get a six-speed automatic.


Exterior and Interior Design

The 2021 Lexus IS will not just be more athletic and sleek, but it will be an inch longer and wider as well, with prominent fenders that accommodate wheels up to 19 inches. The different trims present separate new aggressive grille designs and sharper headlights. The F Sport edition swaps the chrome grill detailing for a more imposing dark finish. F Sport models are eligible for two different 19-inch wheels and a Dynamic Handling Package that contains adaptive dampers and other chassis upgrades.

Inside, most of the 2021 Lexus IS’s cabin has been only modestly updated. The upper portion of the center console is now draped with a gloss black finish instead of the previous brushed-metal look. On the technology front, the 2021 Lexus IS replaces the less-intuitive mouse-like infotainment controls with a user-friendly touchpad. The standard infotainment touchscreen is 8 inches in diagonal (replacing the 7-inch screen from last year), but a 10.3-inch version is available. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto will be included on all three trims as well.


Driver-Assist Features

The 2021 Lexus IS will introduce the latest Lexus Safety System+ 2.5 suite of active safety technologies. This consists of enhanced capabilities for the automatic emergency braking and pedestrian detection technologies, a more sophisticated dynamic cruise control system that can read speed limit signs, and the standardization of blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert.


2021 IS Trims


IS 300

The IS 300 may technically be a base trim, but it’s a Lexus, so that means it’s packed with upscale standard features. Some of these are LED headlights, rain-sensing windshield wipers, dual-zone automatic climate control, synthetic leather upholstery, keyless entry and ignition, two USB ports, and a rearview camera with dynamic gridlines. Both front seats are power-adjustable, and the rear seatback splits 60/40 and folds down to accommodate oversized cargo in the trunk.

The infotainment system is controlled via an 8-inch touchscreen, a remote touchpad controller, or voice recognition. Its main features are Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Amazon Alexa, Bluetooth hands-free phone and audio streaming, SiriusXM satellite radio, and Lexus Enform connected car services. Lexus Safety System+ 2.5 also comes standard, furnishing a pre-collision system with pedestrian detection, lane tracing assist, lane departure warning with steering assist, road sign assist, all-speed dynamic radar cruise control, and automatic high beams. Blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert are also provided.

There are a handful of optional features for this trim. The Comfort Package issues a moonroof, a heated leather-wrapped steering wheel, and heated and ventilated front seats. The Navigation Package upgrades the infotainment situation with a 10.3-inch touchscreen, navigation, advanced voice recognition, and Enform Destination Assist. There’s also a Navigation/Mark Levinson Premium Audio Package that delivers those features plus a 17-speaker Mark Levinson sound system and machined-aluminum control knobs. The a la carte add-ons range from triple-beam LED headlights to intuitive parking assist with automatic braking and rear cross-traffic braking and a surround-view camera system.


IS 350 F Sport

If you’re looking for a heightened version of the IS, the F Sport is the way to go. Not only does it get the heated and ventilated front seats and heated leather-wrapped steering wheel, but it’s aesthetically different as well, with trim-specific front and rear bumpers, rocker moldings, grille surround, lip spoiler, and rear valance. The driver’s seat gets some additional power adjustments, and there are four-way adjustable headrests, sport-bolstered front seats, aluminum sport pedals, and a rear-seat armrest with two cup holders.

The optional F Sport Dynamic Handling Package supplies an F Sport-tuned adaptive variable suspension and Drive Mode Select with settings for Eco, Normal, Sport S, Sport+, and Custom. This package also includes a steering wheel lined with genuine ash wood, 19-inch BBS wheels, a carbon-fiber rear spoiler, a Torsen limited-slip rear differential, and a key card entry system. The Navigation and Navigation/Mark Levinson Premium Audio packages are offered on this trim as well, as are the following individual options: triple-beam LED headlights, intuitive parking assist with automatic braking and rear cross-traffic braking, a surround-view camera system, and a moonroof.
