Lexus has announced the pricing for its third-generation IS sports sedan, which will start at $34,950 for the IS 250 and $39,465 for the IS 350. These prices exclude a $950 destination charge.
The IS 250 packs a 2.5L V6 engine producing 204 horsepower and 185 pound-feet of torque going through a six-speed automatic transmission to the rear wheels. The IS 350 uses a 3.5L V6 engine making 306 horsepower and 227 pound-feet of torque. That is sent through an eight-speed automatic to the rear wheels. All-wheel drive is optional on both models. For the IS 250, it will set you back $2,535. On the IS 350, it will cost $2,235. It should be noted that the AWD version of the IS 350 swaps the eight-speed automatic for a six-speed automatic.
Standard equipment for the 2014 IS includes HID headlights, paddle shifters, Drive Mode Select, a dual zone climate control system, color 4.2 inch TFT multi-information display, Lexus’ next-generation Remote Touch Interface, and 10 airbags.
Lexus will be offering three different option packages across the IS lineup. The Luxury Package adds LED headlights and heated and ventilated front seats. This will set you back $1,050 for RWD models and $610 for AWD models.
Next is the Premium Package which includes the features found in the Premium Package plus a perforated leather-trimmed interior, electrochromic exterior mirrors with reverse tilt, rain-sensing wipers, driver seat memory, a power tilt/telescopic steering wheel, and Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross Traffic Alert. Adding this package to your 2014 IS will add $3,665 to the base price of RWD models and $3,225 for AWD models.
Finally is the F-Sport package which adds sporty aggression to the IS by installing a full-mesh grille and front bumper, LED headlights, 18” split 5-spoke wheels, and a more aggressive sport-tuned suspension. Inside, F-Sport models come equipped with sport seats and LFA-inspired tachometer for the instrument panel. IS 350 models equipped with the F-Sport add a Adaptive Variable Suspension (AVS) with a Sport S+ drive mode.
The F-Sport Package varies in price dependent on what model. Prices are as followed,
- IS 250 RWD: $3,115
- IS 250 AWD: $2,675
- IS 350 RWD: $3,620
- IS 350 AWD: $3,180
