The Lexus IS represents luxury driving at its best. This dynamic and powerful sedan is one of the Lexus flagship cars, showcasing the skill and innovation that Lexus pours into every car. The IS has always aspired to be more sports orientated, more of a coupe than a sedan. With the Lexus IS F-SPORT, it has achieved that ambition, creating a powerful sedan with sports car looks. For drivers, it represents a new level of excellence – and excitement.
The Lexus IS has always been about refined good looks. Its evolution started with the ‘Human Centre Silhouette’ concept that went on to spawn the Spindle architecture that gave the whole Lexus range that iconic spindle grille. Lower, sleeker body lines not only make the Lexus IS look more progressive, but also improve aerodynamic performance, which in turn increases power and reduces fuel consumption. Put simply, the Lexus IS ticks all the right boxes.
The Lexus IS presents a muscular, dynamic presence on the road, which is complemented by the feisty 3.5Ltr V6 engine in the IS 350. This is the same powertrain that you’ll find in the Lexus IS F-Sport, producing 312bhp and 380Nm of torque.
However, all of that power is relatively easy on the fuel tank for a performance car, and the Lexus IS F-SPORT delivers consistently good fuel economy for both urban and open-road driving.
The Lexus IS 350 is good, but the F-SPORT takes the refinements to another level. Internally, the F-SPORT has a race-inspired cockpit and exclusive badging. Every detail has been carefully considered, from the accent stitching along the dash and larger circular air vents to pump cool air into the cabin. This is a driver’s car, so the cockpit has been designed around the driver, with intuitive, touch-screen control in the central console, and driver-assist features such as Active Traction Control and Vehicle Stability Control for better, sharper cornering.
The passengers haven’t been forgotten, either, luxuriating in 8-way power leather seats and dual-zone auto air conditioning. A Mark Levinson Surround Sound system uses 17 speakers for exceptional audio clarity. A 10.3” multimedia display screen has 3D navigation and both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capabilities.
Outside, unique features such as stacked quad exhaust tips give the engine a throaty, aggressive note that hints at the power underneath the elevated hood. That hood redefines the F-SPORT’s panther-like lines, giving it a more coupe look rather than a standard sedan profile. The refinement goes all the way to the back with the F-SPORT rear spoiler that applies downforce at higher speeds, helping the IS F-SPORT tackle corners faster and more precisely. The look is completed with alloy wheels.
The Lexus IS F-SPORT is all about taking an iconic car and tweaking it to make it even better. The result is one of the best sedans in the UAE, and a car that delivers outstanding performance while never compromising on comfort or style.
