Exterior Design
AUTOMATIC HIGH BEAM
Automatic High Beam makes night-time driving less demanding, by switching to low beam when it detects the headlights of oncoming vehicles up ahead.
LED HEADLIGHTS
Auto-levelling, L-shaped LED headlights, underscored with the Lexus-signature LED Daytime Running Lights, makes the IS immediately recognisable.
PEDESTRIAN PROTECTION
Sensors detect a collision with a pedestrian, raising the bonnet to create extra space above the engine; this helps absorb impact and reduces the risk of serious injury.
DISTINCTIVE SPINDLE GRILL
The IS features a more dynamic spindle grille, enhancing the car’s sporty feel with a visually lower centre of gravity.
PRE-CRASH SYSTEM WITH PEDESTRIAN DETECTION
A millimetre-wave radar scans the road ahead to detect obstacles. If a collision is imminent, your Lexus will apply the brakes and tighten the front seatbelts. If a pedestrian is detected, the car will brake automatically to reduce the risk of a collision.
ADAPTIVE CRUISE CONTROL
For a more relaxing drive, Adaptive Cruise Control adjusts the speed of your Lexus to maintain a set distance between you and the vehicle in front.
LANE DEPARTURE ALERT AND LANE KEEP ASSIST
Drift out of lane and Lane Departure Alert gives sensory, sound and light notifications, while Lane Keep Assist counter-steers to guide you back on track.
BLIND SPOT MONITOR
If another vehicle is in your blind spot, a warning light illuminates in the appropriate side-mirror to alert you that another car is out of your line of sight.

LED REAR LIGHTS
At the back of the IS, triple-layer ‘L’-shaped LED lights create crystal-like illumination, providing improved visibility to vehicles behind.
REAR CROSS TRAFFIC ALERT
While reversing out of a busy car park, Rear Cross Traffic Alert helps you manoeuvre by keeping you aware of any vehicles coming your way, from either side.
18-INCH ALLOY WHEELS
These wheels underline your car’s dynamic personality, with a multi-spoke design and an eye-catching metallic finish.
Interior Design
ROAD SIGN ASSIST
Using the windscreen camera, the RSA is able to read the road signs ahead and provide information to the driver through the vehicle’s display screen.
LEXUS PREMIUM NAVIGATION
With rich 3D graphics, points of interest and various mapping options, Lexus Premium Navigation guides you to your destination, and even sends directions by foot to your smart phone, once you’ve parked.
HIGH RESOLUTION DISPLAY
A 10.3-inch high-resolution display is perfectly positioned to provide guidance and information for a more relaxing drive. Operated by voice command or Remote Touch, the display has a split-screen option to prioritise information.
EIGHT AIRBAGS
Eight airbags protect you and your passengers. Dual-stage front, and side airbags protect, while curtain shield airbags run the full length of the interior.
REMOTE TOUCH
Interact with the central multimedia display with a single press. Ergonomically designed, Remote Touch is as easy to use as a computer mouse, and naturally positioned to be conveniently close at hand.
Performance
Segment-leading driving enjoyment is at the heart of the IS development program, and every aspect of the new Lexus sedan’s driving dynamics has been painstakingly engineered to that end. New, laser screw welding and adhesive body bonding techniques, along with additional spot welding, have increased overall body rigidity. The double wishbone front suspension system has been revised, offering a 20% increase in roll rigidity. To the rear, a new multi-link suspension system similar to that of the latest generation GS has been adopted. The structure and rigidity of the steering gear box has been revised to create a lighter, smoother, more accurate steering feel. 3.5 liter, rear-wheel drive IS models are now equipped with the 8-speed, Sport Direct Shift (SPDS) automatic transmission from the acclaimed Lexus IS F.
A new Drive Mode Select system features up to four switchable driving modes- ECO, NORMAL, SPORT/SPORT S and SPORT S+ (the latter available on vehicles equipped with AVS), to optimize the driver’s preferred combination of economy, comfort, performance and handling characteristics.

Safety
Lexus IS Safety

A Lexus first, a newly developed pop-up hood design creates space to absorb pedestrian impact force, allowing for the lowest possible vehicle front profile whilst optimizing pedestrian impact protection. Furthermore, several, advanced new active safety features are fitted on the IS, including Automatic High Beam, Lane Departure Alert, Blind Spot Monitor and Rear Cross Traffic Alert.

F Sport
IS F SPORT models not only benefit from exclusive, more sporting and aggressive exterior and interior design features, but also genuine dynamic enhancements in the form of exclusively tuned front and rear suspension systems. Externally, F SPORT models may be instantly recognised by a more aggressive spindle grille design with a more prominent chrome trim and an exclusive mesh design. On board, F SPORT models inherit the innovate driver’s meter with moving centre ring from the LFA. An exclusive seat design uses an ‘integrated foaming’ construction method to ombine excellent comfort with outstanding lateral holding performance. Both the front and rear suspension systems and the Electric Power Steering (EPS) are exclusively tuned for the F SPORT package, enhancing IS handling performance without detriment to ride quality. An Adaptive Variable Suspension (AVS) system is an option exclusive to F SPORT models, whilst Variable Gear Ratio Steering (VGRS) is also available on 3.5 liter engine models.
