Lexus unveiled a new version of the IS mid-size sedan with striking looks at the 2013 Detroit Motor Show. But there is much more to the 2014 IS than its fancy design. To give you the lowdown on what’s new for the 2014 Lexus IS and IS F Sport, we have Ming-Jou Chen from Lexus College here. She highlights the most important features and technologies in this car.
Just to go through the technicalities real quick, rear- and all-wheel drive versions of the Lexus IS 250 are powered by a 2.5 liter V6 gas engine. The IS 350 features a 3.5 liter V6 gas engine. The IS 300h, which will be available in Europe, Japan,and select international markets, will employ the Lexus Hybrid Drive powertrain, based on a newly developed 2.5L Atkinson-cycle engine. The all-new Lexus IS will go on sale in mid-2013.
