Ken Shaw Lexus in Toronto presents the 2018 Lexus IS:
Engineered for exhilaration, driven to perform.
Accelerate your life behind the wheel of the 2018 Lexus IS. Engineered for exhilarating performance and equipped with some of our most advanced and intuitive technologies, the Lexus IS is available in two AWD models and a Turbo-charged RWD. Take style and performance to the next level with a choice of F SPORT Series 1, 2 or 3 packages.
The 2018 IS channels its athletic prowess from every angle. The bold spindle grille is flanked by air intakes that clearly announce IS’ performance-focused intent. Auto-levelling LED headlamps fuse effortlessly into a character line that runs the length of the silhouette, imparting the impression of a vehicle in motion, even when standing still. IS 300 RWD and IS 300 AWD feature large 17” alloy wheels. While IS 350 AWD features 18” alloys, and adds a power moonroof to let more of the world in on the ride.
Assert your presence and indulge your passion for performance with an F SPORT package, available on all 2018 Lexus IS models. Exterior modifications include a distinct mesh grille, larger cooling ducts to help reduce brake fade, and exclusive 18” alloy wheels. Inside, you’ll find race-inspired touches like a 3-spoke F SPORT steering wheel, drilled aluminum pedals, and sport seats specially designed to hold you in firm embrace.
IS’ interior is thoughtfully and intelligently designed to engage your senses and enhance your command and control. The gauge cluster reinforces the sense that you’re seated in the true cockpit. An available 10.3” high resolution multimedia monitor redefines the art of at-a-glance information transfer. New interior colours -- including “Chateau” and metallic black trim provide a final touch of sport-inspired luxury.
Our most thrilling IS yet is also one of our most accommodating. Generous interior dimensions and uniquely shaped seat backs offer rear seat passengers plenty of room to relax, complete with amenities like a fold down centre armrest and multiple cup holders. Rear seats also split and fold (60:40) to give you the flexibility to take more of the things you’ll need at journey’s end.
Lexus Safety System+ integrates a portfolio of active safety technologies to support your awareness and decision-making under a variety of traffic conditions and contingencies.
Technology for all aspects
All 2018 Lexus IS models now feature the convenience of a full colour backup camera. When in reverse, the view from the camera is shown on the display audio screen to help you see what’s behind and normally out of view. A system of dynamic grid lines makes parking easier than ever.
Enjoy a more connected driving experience. Lexus Remote Touch allows you to access and control a variety of systems and settings -- from audio to climate control -- all with the simple touch of a finger.
Unleash your inner audiophile with an available 15-speaker, 835-watt Mark Levinson® Surround Sound Audio System. Featuring patented and proprietary Clari-Fi™ technology, the system delivers crisp, dynamic sound from any source, and envelops you in 3-dimensional sound that rivals the finest home audio systems.
Touch the throttle and Lexus IS 300 RWD’s 2.0-litre twin-scroll turbocharged 4-cylinder puts 241 HP and 258 lb.-ft. of torque6 at your command, while the steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters invite you to take control. IS 300 AWD and 350 AWD add an extra dose of exhilaration with a 3.5-litre naturally aspirated V6 -- that generates 291 HP on IS 300 and 311 HP IS 350.
No matter what the road or the weather brings your way, IS’s advanced All Wheel Drive system is there to help maintain control. Depending on the situation, the system automatically allocates engine power between the front and rear axles to help you maintain superior traction without ever sacrificing drivability. Available on IS 300 and IS 350.
Drive Mode Select lets you tune your ride to suit your mood or the moment with the simple turn of a dial. Choose ECO for increased fuel efficiency, Normal for an optimal balance of efficiency and performance, or Sport for added exhilaration. Lexus IS F SPORT packages add to the adrenaline rush with Sport S/S+ modes that bring faster gear changes, and reduced body roll.
