2021 Lexus IS 350 Sedan

The 2021 Lexus IS redesign brings a lot of exciting upgrades and new additions to the table. Not only is the latest IS the first Lexus to debut Lexus Driving Signature — or enhanced body rigidity — but it also boasts the new Lexus Safety System+ 2.5 and a plethora of options for the already feature-packed interior. If you’re as excited as we are about the arrival of the 2021 Lexus IS, read on to learn more about this revolutionary sport sedan’s trims, prices, specs, and features. 

Lexus IS Design 

For 2021, the new Lexus IS gets a lower, more athletic stance that’s about 1.2 inches wider than the previous model’s. To give the body an even more streamlined look, the taillamps have been merged into a single slim bar that’s narrowest at the center of the rear. The IS 350 F Sport is equipped with staggered-width 19-inch wheels, complemented by Gloss Black stylings around the grille, rear lip spoiler, and lower rocker. The 2021 Lexus IS redesign promises a sportier style that melds luxury and motorsports.
