LIFE BY LEXUS 26


A BEAST IN ITS OWN RIGHT WITH 233KW/378NM AND TAUT HANDLING CAPABILITIES, THIS IS WILL BRING OUT YOUR INNER FORMULA ONE DRIVER.


I


f you’re seeking a saloon that oozes luxury and stands out from the crowd, look no further than the Lexus IS. This svelte Japanese design isn’t your generic three-box saloon: instead,


it’s an organic blend of swathed surfaces and samurai slashes. It’s the complete package, exhibiting male and female characteristics such as feminine curves draped across broad shoulders and swollen hips, punctuated with striking brightwork and lamp jewellery fore and aft, as well as a bold Lexus emblem emblazoned across its snarling spindle grille. It’s practicality, style, luxury and class all in one neat package.


IN THE BELLY OF THE SEXY BEAST Drop into its leathery cabin and you’re met with a


sumptuous, sports-orientated cockpit. A true driver’s car, the IS ticks all the boxes. It’s the ideal driver’s vehicle, with a variety of options and settings that tighten the steering and suspension for a more dynamic performance. The transmission tunnel helps cocoon the driver, while also spoiling him or her with more hide-covered surfaces. Sports seats and drilled aluminium pedals do much to enforce the car’s appeal, while tactile surfaces enhance the feeling that you’re piloting something very special indeed.


VISUAL DELIGHTS Adding to the vehicle’s classiness are visuals such as


the TFT instrument screen, derived from the Lexus LFA supercar. This display relays information to the driver based on their inputs. Located in the dashboard is Lexus’ 10,25” multimedia display with full connectivity, controlled via the Remote Touch haptic device on the centre console. Everything feels upmarket, luxurious and right.


LUXURY ON TAP Standard features in this saloon include eight-way


electrically adjustable, heated and ventilated seats, a 10-speaker audio system with built-in navigation, full iPod integration with two USB ports and auxiliary input, automatic air-conditioning, 10 airbags, ABS, brake assist, hill assist, park distance control and more.


A WILD HEART Under the bonnet lies a 2,0-litre unit, an inline four tasked


with churning out 180kW of power and 350Nm of torque mated to the eight-speed transmission that recently proved its worth in the Lexus RC-F coupé. Thumb the ignition into life and apply a little throttle (or a lot): the IS 200t is an eager revver, trading the old engine’s rasp for a boomier soundtrack. If this isn’t enough for you, there’s the IS 350 F Sport. A beast in its own right with 233kW/378Nm and taut handling capabilities, this IS will bring out your inner Formula One driver.


HANDLE WITH CARE Point the IS at your favourite length of asphalt and it


rewards you with pin-sharp steering and a refined ride quality that loses none of its sporty aspirations when faced with challenging curves. It’s a finely balanced sports saloon, rear wheel-driven for handling dynamics that will keep you engaged and entertained from the moment you pick up the keys until the moment you put them down again. It’s the kind of car you’ll stare at long after you’ve parked it – with a proud smile.
