2021 Lexus IS Exterior

What's New For the 2021 Lexus IS?

The 2021 Lexus IS freshens up with new exterior and interior styling. You receive enhanced driving dynamics and more driver assistance features. Lexus offers an 8.0-inch infotainment system as the standard on all trims, but you can upgrade to the 10.3-inch touchscreen as an optional choice. The infotainment system also offers you an optional navigation system. Through the redesign, the 2021 Lexus IS welcomes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto to the extensive list of technology features.

Which Features are Available for 2021?

You can choose one of six trim levels, which include:

  • IS 300
  • IS 300 F Sport
  • IS 300 AWD
  • IS 300 F Sport AWD
  • IS 350
  • IS 350 Sport

All the trims offer the same engine choices, and you can pick all-wheel drive or rear-wheel drive. The IS 300 acts as the base model and comes with a six-speed automatic transmission that includes the 3.5-liter V6 gasoline engine.

The F Sport features a grille and vents that have a blacked-out appearance with a unique mesh pattern. Even on the lower trims, 18-inch wheels come packaged as the standard, and the F Sport lets you sign up for the optional 19-inch BBS wheels. The larger wheels improve the handling and the acceleration rate.

You might decide on the IS 350 if you want a higher-tier trim. This trim has optional all-wheel drive, and you get an exclusive limited-slip rear differential. If you choose the IS 350 Sport model, the Lexus Safety System 2.5+ adds several safety features like ten standard airbags, blind spot monitoring, and automatic high beams. The IS 350 Sport also has a more sporty response and styling.

What's Under the Hood of the Lexus IS?

You have two engine choices with the 2021 Lexus IS. The turbocharged four-cylinder engine produces up to 241 horsepower. If you'd like a little beefier engine, you have the 3.5-liter V6, which generates 311 horsepower. With any of the IS 350 trims, you can choose from either rear-wheel drive or select the all-wheel drive. All-wheel drive increases tire traction on the pavement to improve acceleration and safety for slippery roads.

2021 IS Safety Features

Lexus offers more advanced safety technologies in the 2021 model. In particular, the automaker improved the driver assistance technologies that it previously provided. You now have more than ever before, like automatic emergency braking for pedestrians, advanced parking, lane-keeping assist, and adaptive cruise control. Lexus updated the sensors used throughout the car to improve cyclists' and pedestrians' detection, even in low-light conditions. Blindspot monitors protect the driver through enhanced awareness of the other vehicles. The automatic high beams dim the lighting automatically to keep from blinding other drivers.
