More pictures of the “not all new” 2021 Lexus IS
Different wheels and darker colors do make the new IS look a bit better.
(It still looks weird to me. Plus, that “giant grille on a small car” thing…)
The big news is that it gets larger wheels! Standard 17 inch designs are replaced by a new 18-inch set.
And for the first time, 19 inch wheels are available.
Otherwise, engines are the same. A 2.0 Liter Turbo with 241HP or a 3.5 Liter V6 with “just” 260HP on the AWD version. And 311HP on the RWD model. (go figure…)
The 7-year-old interior design is now a bit dated. Even with a larger screen, revised console, and side vents. While the exterior does look new, the interior really needed an update as well…
