Review: 2019 Lexus IS

A ground-hugging, turbocharged, luxury sport sedan is just part of what defines the new Lexus IS. The 2019 IS provides an elegant, well-isolated cabin for five passengers to ensure comfort on short commutes or longer journeys. Lexus Stevens Creek in San Jose has the 2019 Lexus IS in inventory, so visit us today.


The base powertrain of the Lexus IS 300 consists of a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline four-cylinder coupled with an eight-speed automatic transmission and a rear-wheel drivetrain which produces 241-hp and earns an estimated 30 mpg on the highway and 21 mpg in the city. If you are looking for an all-wheel drivetrain, you can opt for the 260-hp 3.5-liter V6 mated to a six-speed auto. The Lexus IS 350 comes with a 311-hp 3.5-liter V6 with the option for either an eight-speed auto and rear-wheel drive, or a six-speed auto and all-wheel drive. An optional F Sport package can be combined with any engine and includes a sport-tuned suspension and larger 18-inch alloy wheels for improved handling.

The seats offer a high-level of comfort with the standard NuLuxe® interior trim, 10-way power adjustable driver's- and 8-way power front passenger seats, three extra inches of legroom for the rear passengers compared to the previous model, dual-zone climate control, keyless entry, an illuminated entry system, and a power moonroof. Optional features include heated and ventilated front seats, Remote Touch to easily move through the menus, a power rear sunshade, and auto-dimming outside mirrors.
