The 2014 Lexus IS is the most anticipated car releases in this year. The 2014 IS from Lexus truly is a beautiful sport sedan and it stands out from the rest of the cars in its class thanks to its innovative design. The mix of a custom spindle grille and LED Daytime Running Lights that are uniquely separated from the grille give the vehicle a striking appearance. The IS is available in both RWD or AWD. The highest trim, the IS 350, continues to be one of the top sellers.
The 2.5 liter V6 engine offers a great amount of power and incredible reliability. The transmission is electronically controlled, and allows the driver to switch gears smoothly. The enhanced fuel injection allows the car to pick up speed instantly. The IS 350, a step up, has a 3.5 liter V6 engine that is capable of producing 306 horsepower, and is paired with an 8 speed Sport Direct Shift (SPDS) automatic transmission.
