It seems that the 2018 Lexus IS has the task to satisfy every wish the new buyer possibly have – to be luxury enough for both aesthetes and speed driving lovers. In that sense the new Lexus has been changed and fully redesigned since the last model in order to provide more luxury and spaced car, comfort for families and good for younger buyers with futuristic ads. Everybody’s wishes are accomplished.
The new 2018 Lexus IS is offered in three models, named with numbers 200, 300 and 350 and with just a few differences between those versions. The base model has 17-inch wheels, LED running lights, xenon headlights, a sunroof, and heated mirrors. LED technology is present in fog and tail lights, too. The size and some features are similar to popular BMW 3 Series and even Mercedes-Benz C-class, showing the manufacturer’s intention to provide luxury car for every generation. Higher versions, like 300 and especially 350-version have some changes, like auto-dimming exterior mirrors or bigger, 18-inch wheels. The special edition is Sports version with new sporty suspension and adaptive bumpers.
Inside space in 2018 Lexus IS has to be a luxury in this car class, and the manufacturer hasn’t saved itself for showing the best in a car. You’ll find some interesting details in there, like eight-way power front seats with driver power lumbar, “NuLuxe” premium vinyl upholstery, 60/40-split folding rear seatbacks which will like even younger buyers for their backs, but with Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, an 8-inch color display with a console-mounted control dial, voice command functionality, Siri Eyes Free and an eight-speaker sound system with a CD player, HD radio, satellite radio and dual USB ports will enjoy even an older driver. Everything in the new Lexus is towards passenger’s enjoying and pleasing while the safety equipment is the best in the class. Higher versions have some ads for spoiled drivers, like special navigation package with Lexus’ Remote Touch mouse-type controller, or variable-ratio steering system that includes the power tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel in Sports version.
The 3.5-liter V6 engine with 255 horsepower of strength and 236 pound-feet of torque seems as a good choice for averaged driver especially if you add six-speed automatic transmission and can drive 21 miles with one fuel loading. The speed of 60 mph this engine increases in 5.9 seconds and stops in averaged 123 miles.
