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

In the competitive compact-luxury-car market, any vehicle that doesn’t do better than “good enough” simply can’t compete. Thankfully, this isn’t an issue for the 2018 Lexus IS, a small sports sedan good enough to take on the likes of the Cadillac ATS, BMW 3 Series and Audi A4. The IS is backed by Lexus’ indisputable reputation for quality, reliability and high resale, not to mention a long list of luxury and safety features buyers have come to expect. We won’t deny the IS’ gaping-grille design is more than polarizing, but that’s a personal opinion not shared by everyone. However, when it comes to performance, capability and sheer driving enjoyment, there is no arguing the 2018 Lexus IS has come into its own.
