Lexus IS 350 Released

Lexus Australia has boosted its IS line performance credentials with the introduction of the powerful new IS 350 sedan.

Slotting between IS 250 and IS F variants, IS 350 will deliver 233kW of power and 378Nm of torque.

The launch of IS 350 coincides with new styling and features available across the IS sedan range – including an aggressive frontal treatment and new wheel and tyre package, along with new safety and comfort refinements.

IS 350 also debuts Lexus’ F Sport logo, with F Sport models featuring unique sports-tuned suspension, wheels, spoilers, unique interior and exterior features and F Sport badging.

Lexus chief executive Tony Cramb said IS 350 would be a strong addition to the Lexus range and bring with it increased competition to the luxury vehicle market.

“IS line is one of Lexus’ most popular ranges of vehicles, and IS 350 will add to the line’s appeal,” Mr Cramb said.

“IS 350 is an outstanding vehicle – it leads its competitors on power, performance, specification, price and value.

“Much like our first vehicle – the LS 400 – IS 350 will result in customers questioning why they’d pay 20 to 30 thousand dollars more for a similarly powered vehicle from our competitors,” said Mr Cramb.

“With IS 350’s powertrain, list of standard features and segment-leading price, IS 350 will definitely give our competitors a run for their money
