Discover the models offered in the 2017 Lexus IS family
July 31 2017,
The Lexus IS was one of the most talked about vehicles when it arrived on the market several years ago. Initially, Lexus’ main objective was competing with the BMW 3 Series when it came to performance and road behavior. After nearly two decades on the market, Lexus can say mission accomplished.
The 2017 Lexus IS receives several improvements this year to make the model more competitive, starting with a new design at the front and rear. On the road, the 2017 Lexus IS remains a car that combines comfort, performance and refinement, and that will ultimately appeal to those who do not want to compromise.
The new IS is available in three versions: Lexus IS 200t, Lexus IS 300 and Lexus IS 350. Here is a summary of these three versions that ultimately stand out from each other mainly when it comes the engines and the equipment levels.
