Driving the IS 250 - The Hightlights

THE HIGHLIGHTS

In the IS 250 you'll enjoy the dynamic power of a 2.5-litre V6 petrol engine with 6-speed automatic transmission, paddle shifts and manual 'M' mode. Smooth and fun to drive, the IS 250 will accelerate rapidly up to a top speed of 225 km/h, where legally permitted.

Innovative D-4 direct injection and dual VVT-i valve control ensure power across the entire rev range. Built for lightness and strength, this highly refined drivetrain offers superb balance and durability, while twin exhausts produce an exciting engine note.

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. 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.

Try it for yourself and book a test drive.

Inside the IS 250 - The Highlights

THE HIGHLIGHTS

On the road, the IS 250 is a beautifully balanced sedan to drive, but also a wonderfully comfortable car for passengers to travel in. 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.

Using Remote Touch, 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.

Safety in the IS 250 - The Highlights

SAFETY HIGHLIGHTS

Equipped with our latest Vehicle Dynamics Integrated Management and powerful ventilated disc brakes, the IS uses advanced technology to support your driving skills. Lane Departure Alert, Blind Spot Monitor and Rear Cross Traffic Alert detect vehicles behind, while Pre-Crash Safety uses radar to identify danger ahead and even applies the brakes if necessary.

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 will raise instantly to help absorb the impact force.

Lexus Craftsmanship

LEXUS 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.

Mark Levinson® Premium Audio

MARK LEVINSON® PREMIUM AUDIO

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.

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.

F SPORT instruments

F SPORT INSTRUMENTS

The IS F SPORT models feature a stunning single combination meter with dynamic radial graphics inspired by the Lexus LFA. This uses digital technology originally developed to display the lightning-fast revving peaks of our V10 supercar. After a unique start-up sequence, the appearance of the combination meter changes according to the driving mode selected

Pop up hood

POP UP HOOD

The IS features an impact-absorbing pop up hood. Activated by sensors mounted in the front bumper, should you collide with a pedestrian, the system slightly raises the level of the bonnet to give more space between it and the hard components of the engine underneath. This reduces the risk of head injuries to the pedestrian.

Multimedia Navigation

MULTIMEDIA NAVIGATION

The 7-inch screen is operated by Remote Touch or voice commands. With vivid 3D graphics and many mapping options, once parked, the system generates a QR code for your smartphone, with directions by foot to your final destination.

The IS offers next-generation services like Online Search, Google Street View® , Panoramio® or Connected Traffic. For extra convenience you can even forward a route from your laptop or tablet to your car’s navigation system.

Lane Departure Alert / Automatic High Beam

LANE DEPARTURE ALERT / AUTOMATIC HIGH BEAM

A camera mounted behind the rear-view mirror enables Lane Departure Alert to warn you if you inadvertently drift out of lane. Automatic High Beam uses the same camera at night to automatically switch to low beam when it detects the lights of either an oncoming or preceding vehicle.

Rear Cross Traffic Alert

REAR CROSS TRAFFIC ALERT

When reversing, for instance in a busy car park, the Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA) function uses the BSM 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.

Passenger safety cell, 8 airbags

PASSENGER SAFETY CELL, 8 AIRBAGS

In addition to an immensely strong passenger safety cell, occupant protection is provided by eight airbags. The driver and front passenger are protected by 2-stage head airbags, as well as knee and side airbags.

Curtain shield airbags run the full length of both cabin sides. All seatbelts, except for the centre rear seat, are also specified with pre-tensioners. This exceptional level of safety protection is provided as standard in the IS.

LED Headlights

LED HEADLIGHTS

The IS is available with LED headlights, while all models have distinctive L-shaped LED daytime running lights integrated into the front bumper. Energy-saving LED technology provides outstanding illumination and reliable, long-life performance.

Pre-Crash Safety / Adaptive Cruise Control

PRE-CRASH SAFETY / ADAPTIVE CRUISE CONTROL

Millimetre-wave radar and an on-board computer calculate collision risk ahead. If the risk is high, the driver is alerted by audible and visual warnings and brake pressure is increased. When a collision is deemed unavoidable, the brakes will be applied automatically as necessary and the front seatbelts tightened. Adaptive Cruise Control uses the same radar technology to maintain a set distance to vehicles ahead.
