2017 Lexus IS

The 2017 Lexus IS lineup sports a revised nose and tail with a slightly different grille, headlights and taillights.

Active cruise control, collision warning, and other high-end safety features are now standard.

About Lexus IS

The compact entry-level, luxury-sedan market is one of the most competitive out there, with "excellent" being the minimum standard. Yet even then, the 2017 Lexus IS stands out. The styling is part of the reason, and one look at the gaping grille and sharply angular lines explains why this luxury-sports sedan turns heads. But there's more, like the advanced technology inside, indisputable reputation for reliability, the prestige of the Lexus brand, and the impressive attention to detail that comes with it all. Then there's performance, with both 4-cylinder and V6 models offering a rewarding driving experience. Consider the competition -- BMW 3 Series, Mercedes-Benz C-Class, Audi A4, Cadillac ATS -- and the fact that this Lexus holds its own is even more impressive.
