WHAT’S NEW: 2024 LEXUS IS SERIES

  • Four packages enhanced with additional content

TORONTO, ONTARIO – NOVEMVBER 24th, 2023 – Provocative in design, agile in performance, and a feast for the senses. That’s the Lexus IS – the luxury sport sedan that’s not only track tested, but required a whole new track to create. New this year, Lexus upgrades the standard equipment in four packages then adds three new packages to offer Canadian guests a choice of 10 grades.

“Our Shimoyama test track in Japan was built to develop the foundations of the Lexus driving signature, starting with the current IS model. This world-class test circuit of 5.3 km of curves, slopes and multiple surfaces allowed our professional racing drivers to push the IS to its limits. The result has given rise to a new way of expressing the relationship between driver and vehicle that ensures the IS delivers the best possible driving experience,” said Martin Gilbert, Director of Lexus Canada. “For 2024, we created three new packages and then improved four other configurations, making the IS an even more compelling luxury sports sedan than ever.”

As a luxury sport sedan, the IS puts performance front and centre. Every model expresses the Lexus Driving Signature – developed, tested, and proven on the track. The result is a sedan that forges deeper connections between the driver, the vehicle, and the road.

Lexus offers the IS series in three distinct powertrains, as follows:

  • IS 300 AWD models feature a direct injection 3.5L naturally aspirated V6 mated to a six-speed automatic transmission, tuned to produce 260 peak horsepower and up to 236 lb-ft of torque. This model features the Lexus dynamic torque all-wheel-drive system for elevated confidence and control.
  • IS 350 AWD models feature the same direct injection 3.5L naturally aspirated V6, mated to a six-speed sport direct shift automatic transmission. This powertrain is tuned to produce 311 peak horsepower and up to 280 lb-ft of torque, delivered to the pavement via the Lexus dynamic torque all-wheel-drive system.
  • IS 500 RWD models feature a 5.0L naturally aspirated V8 and direct shift eight-speed automatic transmission. This rear-wheel-drive configuration delivers 472 peak horsepower and up to 394 lb-ft of torque, and is capable of launching the IS from 0-100 km/h in just 4.6 seconds.

The 2024 Lexus IS is as thrilling to view as it is to drive. From its low and wide stance to its bold front fascia and muscular silhouette, every feature and form speaks to this luxury sport sedan’s athletic abilities. Sleek headlamps emphasize the vehicle’s low centre of gravity while sharp character lines and muscular fenders define its profile. At the rear, a unique, L-shaped blade-style light bar spans the vehicle – creating a dynamic lasting impression. And each IS model rides on grade-specific wheels. Depending on trim level, body colours include Cloudburst Grey, Iridium, Eminent White Pearl, Grecian Water, and Caviar, while F SPORT models are offered in a choice of Infrared, Ultrasonic Blue Mica 2.0, Ultra White, Cloudburst Grey, Iridium, Caviar, and Incognito.

Inside, the IS welcomes up to five adults to a cabin designed to stir the soul and inspire the desire to drive. Front row seats trimmed in NuLuxe hold driver and navigator in firm comfort – ideal for long trips and spirited adventures. Sporty touches and intelligent amenities abound. Depending on configuration, standard interior colours schemes include Black, Glazed Caramel, and Rioja Red, while select F SPORT models are offered in Black, White, and Circuit Red.

Every 2024 IS features advanced yet intuitive technology features, headlined by the Lexus Enform System including Service Connect and Safety Connect. Other technology features include display audio with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility and integrated Sirius XM Satellite radio.

As a Lexus, every IS is impressively equipped with state of the art safety features. All models are fitted with Lexus Safety System + 2.5 – a portfolio of Lexus active safety technologies that supports the driver’s awareness and decision-making under a range of traffic conditions and contingencies. Other standard safety systems include the Blind Spot Monitor System with Rear Cross Traffic Alert, the Lexus Star Safety System, 10 airbags, an on-board first aid kit, anti-theft alarm system, and a tire pressure monitor system.
