2021 Lexus IS Review

2021 Lexus IS Review

The Lexus IS is well loved by enthusiasts due to its compact size and dimensions. The car was developed in 2000 to compete with the BMW 3 Series. It brought power and unique styling to the motoring arena. The IS has enjoyed a relatively positive response from car enthusiasts. As such, the company has revealed that a brand new, redesigned IS is on the way. It will be launched at the 2021 Lexus IS. We have discovered sources such as Almuraba which contain previews and renderings of the new car. Here is what we know about it so far.

Exterior redesign

As would be expected, renderings of the new IS indicate a body style that is full of angles and curves. In our opinion, the 2021 Lexus IS is going to have the iconic hourglass radiator grille that is characteristic of all Lexus models. The front fascia is quite likely going to be quite neat. A pair of vertical fog lights are most likely going to sandwich the lower section of the grille. They are likely to be angled inward to maintain the aesthetic flow.

The Lexus logo is highly likely going to be emblazoned on the upper section of the grille. It will call attention to the headlights on either side of this section. To keep with modern trends and grant the driver full visibility, the headlights are most likely going to be embedded with LED technology.

The hood on this car is likely to be smoothly curved upwards. This is to make room for the large power plant on this car. A pair of sculpted lines are expected to lead the eye from the inner edge of the headlights to each of the A-pillars. This boosts aerodynamics and improves the appearance of the car.

We are fairly confident that the new 2021 Lexus IS is going to ride on 18-inch wheels right from the factory. Also, the car is likely to have 4 doors. The aggressive styling and sculpting is expected to continue down the car’s shoulder towards the rear section. Here, the renderings suggest that it will have a sculpted spoiler on the lid of the trunk. The rear lights are most likely going to use LED technology. A pair of reflectors are also most likely going to be situated on the upper part of the rear bumper. We are also excited to see that the new sedan may have double tailpipes in customized cutlets too!

2021 Lexus IS Interior design

The 2021 Lexus IS is expected to have a lot of technology in the cabin. This is so that it can provide comfort and performance in equal proportions. Due to this, we are confident that the steering wheel will be minimalist in design. Here, we can expect that it will have 2 spokes containing a collection of tactile buttons. The bottom is most likely going to be flat so as to enhance the sporty appeal of the vehicle.

The analog dials are also highly likely to be replaced by a digital instrument cluster. Here, the driver will be able to view details such as the speed, rev count, mileage and transmission with digital clarity. The cluster may measure up to 8 inches in size and be powered by LCD technology. At the upper section of the center stack, we can be confident that there’ll be a large 8 to 10-inch touchscreen panel. Here, the driver and passengers will receive infotainment, navigation details and also control the air conditioning. An array of buttons can also be placed under this panel for extra manipulation.

We are confident that the traditional gear shifter is quite likely going to be replaced with a futuristic knob. Drivers are also hopefully going to receive the option of getting this sedan with a flapping paddle gearbox. The car is expected to be upholstered in premium materials. Additional extras such as wood grain, carbon fiber and contrast stitching are most likely going to be in order too.

Engine, specs

There is a high probability that the 2021 Lexus IS will have a 3.0-liter turbocharged engine producing 335 horsepower. The straight six-cylinder engine is expected to assist the new IS to compete with the 3 Series. The engine will most likely be paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission.

Price, Availability and Release Date

The 2021 Lexus IS is most likely going to hit showrooms in 2021. It’s base model is quite possibly going to have a price of $45,000. The new car is also probably going to be released in more trims that will cost a little more.
