New Lexus IS teased ahead of 2021 launch

New Lexus IS teased ahead of 2021 launch

Category : ,

Lexus has teased the all-new IS ahead of its scheduled debut on 9 June. The Japanese brand’s BMW 3 Series rival will land in showrooms in 2021.

Based on this teaser image, the upcoming IS will feature a sporty diffuser beneath the rear bumper and a full-width LED rear light bar, which is similar in design to the unit found on the the Lexus UX compact crossover.

We’re yet to get a glimpse of the front end, but we expect it will be subject to a heavy styling update. Revisions should mirror the design of the Lexus ES executive saloon, with a pair of narrow LED headlamps and a broad hourglass-shaped radiator grille.

Inside, the new IS should feature Lexus’s latest dashboard design, with a minimalist centre console, a circular digital instrument binnacle and a high-mounted 10.25-inch infotainment system – all of which have already been introduced on the UX, ES and LS.

Mechanical updates are still under wraps but, like the rest of the Lexus line-up, we expect  the new IS will be available with 2.0-litre or 2.5-litre four-cylinder petrol engines, which will be mated to an electric motor and a CVT automatic transmission. 

The fourth-generation IS will offer fresh competition for the Mercedes C-Class, Audi A4, and BMW 3 Series when it goes on sale next year.
