Tested and tuned on six iconic tracks, including the Fuji Speedway, the IS includes added performance enhancements that help create an unprecedented visceral connection to the road.
Whether you're looking for added exhilaration or taking a relaxing drive through the neighborhood, Drive Mode Select enables you to make your IS more responsive or efficient with the simple turn of a dial.
Brace yourself for an uninhibited driving experience. For added engagement and lightning-fast gear changes, every IS features steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters. The IS all-wheel drive models are equipped with a six-speed automatic transmission, while rear-wheel drive models boast the same quick-shifting, eight-speed Sport Direct-Shift transmission used in Lexus F models. In addition to including downshift throttle-blipping for more precise shifting and quicker response, the rear-wheel drive IS models are so advanced that their shifting varies with G-forces, allowing a lower gear to be held throughout the turn, providing maximum response when accelerating out.
For heart-racing intensity, an available TORSEN®* limited-slip differential helps to ensure every ounce of torque ignites adrenaline-fueling performance. With a suspension that is designed to adapt to the needs of its driver, the IS 350 F SPORT boasts an exclusive Adaptive Variable Suspension with active damping control. Paired with a reinforced chassis for even greater rigidity, the 2019 IS is not only the most powerful IS yet,* it’s also the most thrilling.
Making a statement before you even arrive, available full-LED headlamps feature a three-projector design that creates an eye-catching L shape. Adding to this brilliant design, the headlamps also have LED side turn signals.
The interior of the F SPORT is a sleek and aggressive command center. While its enhanced bolstered sport seats are engineered to grip you through every turn, aluminum pedals and race-inspired instrumentation help satisfy your craving for performance. In addition, a steering wheel trimmed in perforated leather, exclusive stitching and distinctive accents will answer your demand for cutting-edge design.
Taking the comfort of the standard seats even further, the heated and ventilated front seats offer separate heaters and fans in the seat cushions to provide optimum comfort, regardless of the weather.
The embrace of the low-set, 10-way power-adjustable driver’s seat (including lumbar) and the eight-way power-adjustable front passenger's seat help you feel the connection to the road. The seat, pedals, steering wheel and even the windshield wipers are positioned and angled for a more dynamic driving experience without sacrificing comfort or visibility.
Customize the climate around you. Individual settings allow the driver and front passenger to adjust their preferred temperatures.
