The Lexus IS is the sportiest offering in the carmaker’s sedan lineup. The entry-luxury sport sedan is available with a choice of rear- or all-wheel drive and goes head to head in its segment against established sporty four-doors including the BMW 3 Series, Audi A4, Mercedes-Benz C-Class, Infiniti Q50, and Acura TLX, plus newcomers such as the Kia Stinger and Genesis G70. The Lexus IS is the second-best-selling sedan from Toyota’s luxury brand, appealing to a younger demographic than the top-selling but more conservatively styled ES.
There are several trims within the 2019 Lexus IS lineup: IS 300 ($39,435), IS 300 w/all-wheel-drive ($41,885), IS 350 ($43,155), and the all-wheel-drive IS 350 ($45,220), including the $1,025 destination charge. The F Sport trim adds about $2,000 to $3,000 depending on the model. This is one of the few Lexus models without a hybrid variant.
