THE NEW IS 200t

Centre of attention on the stunning IS sedan is a bold Lexus signature ‘spindle grille’. LED lights and L-shaped LED daytime running lights complete the purposeful look. In profile, the car’s athletic stance is complemented by a low bonnet, side ‘kick-up’ line and long coupé roofline, giving dynamic presence and exceptional roominess.

On the road, the IS is a beautifully balanced sedan to drive, but also a wonderfully comfortable car for passengers to travel in.

VEHICLE FEATURES

GET TO KNOW THE IS 200t BETTER

Driving the IS 200t - The Highlights

THE HIGHLIGHTS

The IS is the result of relentless attention to detail: for a more engaging drive, we’ve lowered the driver’s seat hip point by 20 mm and adjusted the steering wheel pitch by 3°. Driving precision has been improved with a more rigid chassis, built using breakthrough adhesive and laser screw welding technology. New multi-link rear suspension gives greater grip and improved handling. Factor in innovative aerodynamics, and you have a car that is not only highly responsive, but one that’s incredibly quiet too.

Inside the IS 200t - The Highlights

THE HIGHLIGHTS

Relaxing in sumptuous leather seats, you’ll enjoy exquisite Lexus details like wood inlays and a beautifully finished central analogue clock. Built on the same line as the LS flagship sedan, the entire IS production is overseen by Lexus ‘Takumi’ craftspeople.

For a substantial increase in rear passenger legroom, and a smooth ride, the car’s wheelbase has been extended by 70 mm. The rear seats also fold flat 60:40 – ideal for transporting bulkier objects.

Safety in the IS 200t - The Highlights

SAFETY HIGHLIGHTS

Equipped with our latest Vehicle Dynamics Integrated Management and powerful ventilated disc brakes, the IS is engineered to avoid danger. Evidenced by a Euro NCAP 5-star ‘maximum score’ rating, in the event of a collision you are protected by an incredibly strong passenger safety cell, that makes extensive use of high-tensile steel.

Enhancing safety even further, the IS features Whiplash Injury Lessening front seats and eight airbags. Additionally, should sensors mounted in the front bumper detect a collision with a pedestrian, the bonnet is raised automatically to the optimum angle to help reduce the risk of injury.

Petrol Turbo

PETROL TURBO

Equipped with a brand new 2.0-litre petrol turbo engine – with D-4ST fuel injection for both fuel economy and instantaneous torque – the IS 200t sports sedan delivers 245 DIN hp of dynamic power. Capable of rapid acceleration, up to a top speed of 230 km/h (where permitted), the IS 200t’s 8-speed transmission allows direct shifts and flexible driving styles.

The engine is assembled in a dust-free environment for smooth and refined performance, while twin exhausts produce a compelling sound.

8-Speed Transmission

8-SPEED TRANSMISSION

Equipped with 8-speed transmission and paddle shifts, the rear-wheel drive IS 200t and IS 200t F SPORT models are the first Lexus sedans to vary gear shifting in accordance to G-forces. By detecting when the IS enters a curve, a lower gear is held throughout for optimal response when accelerating out.

Turbocharger

TURBOCHARGER

This efficient new twin scroll turbocharger has been engineered to produce high torque right through the rev range. The shape of the turbine blades has been optimised, and the friction in the bearing mechanism reduced, creating a compact turbocharger with incredibly responsive performance.

Twin Exhausts

TWIN EXHAUSTS

With unique style and sophistication, beautifully engineered twin stainless steel exhausts enhance the refined sound of the IS 200t’s high-performance turbo powerplant.

Sports Driving Position

SPORTS DRIVING POSITION

From a lower and sportier driving position, you’ll really ‘feel’ the road surface through the new steering setup and sense how the car responds to the slightest steering input.

Advanced Aerodynamics

ADVANCED AERODYNAMICS

The IS has superb aerodynamics, thanks to details like a near-flat underbody and tiny winglets on the front door pillars and rear lights. First seen on F1 racing cars, these winglets create air vortices that help pull the airstreams inwards to improve the way the IS cuts through the air. This not only enhances stability and handling, but also improves fuel efficiency and reduces wind noise.

Driving Comfort

DRIVING COMFORT

The IS showcases a spacious interior, rich in the refinement and quality for which Lexus is legendary. The driving position is sportier and more focused, while the newly designed front seats offer greater comfort and better lateral support.

Enhanced Control

ENHANCED CONTROL

With next-generation multimedia in the IS, you can access Connected Services like Google Street View®, calculate the most ecological route or enjoy the 15-speaker Mark Levinson® Premium Surround system. Or, with the brush of a fingertip, use innovative electrostatic controls to adjust the air conditioning.

Takumi Craftsmanship

TAKUMI CRAFTSMANSHIP

Built at our award-winning Tahara plant, by the same Lexus teams that assemble the LS flagship sedan, the IS completely redefines build quality for this kind of luxury car. You’ll sense it when you first touch the precision-machined aluminium controls of the Mark Levison® audio, or feel the beautifully finished steering wheel in your hands.

Outside, impeccable paintwork is wet-sanded by hand after each foundation coat (a time consuming process normally reserved for coach-built cars) and checked by eye as well as digitally to ensure a perfect surface.

15-Speaker Mark Levinson®

15-SPEAKER MARK LEVINSON®

The IS can be ordered with a peerless Mark Levinson® Premium Audio system that delivers a true live concert experience when listening to music or watching a DVD. Fifteen bespoke speakers, each individually tuned, produce incredible 5.1-channel digital surround sound.

Innovative GreenEdge™ technology in each speaker also means twice the sound for the same energy consumption, while a 'Auto Volume System' lets you enjoy music to the full, by automatically adjusting the sound level when you switch between different artists and recordings. Beautifully finished, precision-machined aluminium controls and a black gloss finish reflect the design of Mark Levinson® world-class home audio systems.

Remote Touch

REMOTE DISPLAY

Next-generation Remote Touch, with single press confirmation, lets users interact intuitively with the central multimedia display. Ergonomically designed, Remote Touch is close at hand and as easy to use as a computer mouse.

Rear Cross Traffic Alert

REAR CROSS TRAFFIC ALERT

When reversing, for instance in a busy car park, Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA) uses Blind Spot Monitor radar to detect vehicles approaching the difficult-to-see area behind the vehicle. When a vehicle is detected, the RCTA function alerts you with a visual display in the door mirrors and a buzzer.

Euro NCAP 5-Star Rating

EURO NCAP 5-STAR RATING

Providing realistic and independent assessment of the safety performance of cars sold in Europe, the IS has been awarded the Euro NCAP 5-star rating. Its score was well above the minimum required to achieve five stars, and ranks the IS amongst the very safest vehicles in the premium segment.

Blind Spot Monitor

BLIND SPOT MONITOR

Radar devices mounted in the rear bumper detect vehicles in adjacent lanes that are not visible in the door mirrors. If the driver is indicating to change lane and a vehicle enters the blind spot, the Blind Spot Monitor instantly activates a warning signal in the relevant door mirror.
