The 2019 Lexus IS 300 and IS 350 still bring to the premium-compact-sedan world the same commendable characteristics they always have: a superb reputation for build and materials quality, ever-dependable reliability, high customer-satisfaction scores, strong resale values, and pleasant dealership experiences. They’re also enjoyable to drive.
New Features and Revisions
The IS 300 has an upgrade of its engine management for sharper throttle and turbocharger responses, along with optimized transmission shifts. Options now include triple-beam headlights, plus smartwatch and Amazon Alexa integration. And the Silver Lining Metallic paint choice is replaced by Liquid Platinum.
