Handling and Steering

When you climb into the driver's seat of a luxury sport sedan like the Lexus IS 300, you expect thrilling driving dynamics. The Lexus IS 300 does not disappoint. Armed with a turbocharged 2.0L engine, a smooth eight-speed automatic transmission, and rear-wheel drive, the Lexus IS 300 is well-equipped to help you take command of the road.

Safety Features

One of the strongest cards that the Lexus IS 300 has in its hand is its wealth of standard features, many of which are only available as options on rivals like the BMW 3 Series 330i if they're available at all.
