2015 Lexus IS 250 Exterior

2015 Lexus IS 250 Overview

Lexus redesigned the IS last year, giving the sport sedan the bold spindle grille seen on other newer Lexus models as well as an all-new interior with a roomier backseat. Offered with rear- or all-wheel drive with a choice of two V-6 engines, the IS competes against models like the Cadillac ATS, BMW 3 Series and Audi A4.

New for 2015
Model-year 2015 brings changes for the car's interior. The remote touch interface knob is updated for the navigation system. All-wheel-drive models and the F Sport now have a heated steering wheel. The Lexus Enform Remote, a subscription system that, among other things, allows owners to start their car with a smartphone, is also available.
