Lexus IS: The Details

For 2011, the Lexus IS gets a minor facelift that updates the car’s exterior, interior, adds a new F Sport package and brings a first for the IS lineup: an all-wheel drive IS 350. With AWD competition from Audi, BMW, Cadillac and Infiniti, it only made sense for Lexus to get in on the act.

While the 2011 Lexus IS looks sleeker, it is mechanically similar to than the older IS. Exterior updates include a new front grill and bumper, new LED daytime running lights, refreshed taillights and a revised tailpipe design. On the inside, the interior remains largely the same but the 2011 IS benefits from new, optional F Sport seats that have grippy microfiber to hold the driver in place during aggressive driving.
