With impressive powertrains for 2017, top-to-bottom refinement, and Lexus' unbeatable build quality, the IS remains an undeniably appealing choice among driver's cars.

What's New For 2017

The Lexus IS gets a bit of an exterior makeover for 2017. The biggest change is to the front fascia which features updated headlights, grill and bumper. The rear has also been updated with new taillight reflectors and a new exhaust. The change is relatively subtle, but the 2017 IS manages to look sharper and more athletic with the redesign.

Introduction

The Lexus IS might be called a sport compact luxury sedan, because it pretty much covers all those bases. It’s rear-wheel drive, with all-wheel drive available on the V6 models. For 2017 the bumpers are tweaked, but it’s scarcely noticeable.

The Lexus IS Turbo, the model formerly known as 200T, comes with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder making 241 horsepower, about the same as its competition from Audi, BMW, and Mercedes-Benz. It’s mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission.

The IS 300 model uses a 3.5-liter V6 making 255 horsepower and comes standard with the 8-speed automatic and all-wheel drive.

The IS 350 model uses a 3.5-liter V6 making 306 horsepower, same transmission pairing as the IS 300, with rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive.

There’s an F Sport package for each model, that makes the appearance, handling, throttle and transmission tuning more aggressive.

The IS hasn’t been crash tested, but it has safety systems that many competitors don’t have. Forward collision warning, lane departure alert with active lane control, and automatic high beams are standard. Which makes it all the more shocking to us that a rearview camera is not; it’s a $350 option.

Lineup

The rear-wheel-drive Lexus IS Turbo ($37,825) comes with the 2.0-liter turbocharged engine. The IS 300 ($40,200) comes with the 255-hp V6, while the IS 350 ($41,370) is equipped with the 306-hp V6. (Prices are MSRP and do not include destination charge.)

The IS Turbo comes standard with leatherette upholstery, massive infotainment with a 7.0-inch screen, Bluetooth connectivity, keyless ignition, moonroof, LED headlamps, steering-wheel audio and phone controls, Siri Eyes Free for Apple iPhones, and 17-inch wheels.

The IS 350 adds 18-inch wheels.

Options include blind-spot monitors with rear cross-traffic alerts; navigation with a 10.3-inch infotainment screen, 15-speaker Mark Levinson sound system, real leather, and heated steering wheel.

The F Sport package includes adjustable dampers (IS 350 only), power adjustable front seats, aluminum pedals, upgraded instrument cluster, 18-inch wheels, silver interior accents, unique front and rear bumpers, and a sound composer for interior engine noises.

Walkaround

The trademark Lexus spindle grille is large and expressive, as they all are. The stance of the IS model is purposeful. Angular lines wrap around the front end, and continue in lean and graceful curves down the sides and around to the rear deck.

Interior

The Lexus IS is a tidy size for a luxury car, so the cabin is tight, not cramped, but far from spacious. Its upscale design is its strength, along with the quality of the materials and the fit and finish. The plastic, rubber, and leatherette feel durable. The cabin has the visual effect of making it feel like it came from a car costing two or three times the forty grand price of the IS. Maybe it’s the analog clock.

And never mind that the climate control instruments feel like they came from a car of 20 years ago.

The 7.0-inch infotainment screen contains the Lexus app suite, which they call Enform. The inverted mouse used for navigating the infotainment has plenty of critics.

The IS is actually as wide as its two main competitors, the Mercedes C-Class and BMW 3-Series. The IS was stretched a few years ago, to a 102-inch wheelbase, still a bit less than the Benz and Beemer. That’s reflected in the rear legroom, which is about three inches less than those two, at 32.2 inches. The IS technically seats five, but three adults in the rear isn’t going to happen for very long.

The large tunnel that surrounds the mechanicals of the all-wheel-drive models cuts into the front footwells. The standard front seats are comfortable enough for road trips. The F Sport seats could use more bolstering.

The trunk is 13.8 cubic feet, more than the C-Class but less than the 3-Series.

Driving Impressions

From zero to sixty, the IS Turbo with 241 horsepower takes about a half second longer than the Mercedes and BMW with their very similar four-cylinder engines. It’s a bit heavier. The 8-speed automatic doesn’t help, as it’s not a good combination with the engine. Without using the paddle shifters, even with 258 pound-feet of torque, it lags. There were also some transmission stutters going up hills; the transmission hunted for gears, forcing us to use the paddle shifters to find them.

The V6 engine in the IS 300 makes just 14 more horsepower, at 255. So it seems the main reason to upgrade would be to get all-wheel drive, which comes with a 6-speed automatic we found smooth and functional.

If you’re looking at the 306-horsepower IS 350 because it’s the performance sedan, with rear-wheel drive and the 8-speed, you should know that it’s no Mercedes C43, BMW 340i, or Audi S4. Not with its modest 277 pound-feet of torque, nor even with the F Sport package, which it needs to be considered a sports sedan. It’ll do zero to sixty in less than six seconds.

Beyond the cosmetic things, the F Sport brings an adjustable suspension and a sharper throttle and transmission in its Sport+ mode. It unlocks the car’s potential, and makes the eight-speed shift smoother and quicker.

Summary

The main thing the Lexus IS has going for it is its tidy size, and its upscale cabin; although the back seat is small, so it’s a dubious family sedan. The turbo four and V6 engines are smooth, but the 8-speed automatic is sometimes stubborn to upshift on its own.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.

Options

This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.

 

Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
