2016 Lexus IS 350 F Sport
3.5L V6 Engine with 306-horsepower
Boasting impressive horsepower, the 3.5-liter V6 engine 306-horsepower IS 350 demands its share of attention. But the technology inside is also noteworthy. Both models offer the advantage of ingenious dual Variable Valve Timing with intelligence (VVT-i), helping enhance fuel efficiency, and providing added torque at lower speeds and greater acceleration at higher speeds.
Tested and tuned on six iconic tracks, including the Fuji Speedway, including added performance enhancements help create an unprecedented visceral connection to the road.
Track-Tuned Suspensions: A double-wishbone suspension system offers 20 percent greater sway rigidity in front, while a multilink rear suspension inspired by the GS F SPORT helps increase rear grip.
Longer, Wider Stance: A longer wheelbase and wider track than on previous generations offer greater agility and stability, giving the IS a more commanding presence on the road while spoiling rear-seat passengers with nearly three extra inches of legroom.
COMFORT & DESIGN
The interior of the F SPORT is a sleek and aggressive command center. While its enhanced bolstered sports seats are engineered to grip you through every turn, an ergonomic steering wheel trimmed in perforated leather, aluminum pedals and race-inspired instrumentation help satisfy your craving for performance. In addition, exclusive stitching and distinctive accents will realize your demand for cutting-edge design.
FROM THE INSIDE OUT
Combining exquisite craftsmanship with exceptional comfort, the interior features a shift knob and steering wheel trimmed in hand-selected leather.
MODE FOR EVERY MOOD
Whether you're looking for added exhilaration or taking a relaxing drive through the neighborhood, Drive Mode Select enables you to make your IS more responsive or efficient with the simple turn of a dial.
Sport S mode alters the powertrain for faster gear changes and more dynamic throttle-mapping and switches the outer ring of the LFA-inspired tachometer to white on F SPORT models. The IS 350 F SPORT's Sport S+ mode goes a step further by tightening the suspension and increasing the steering response in VGRS-equipped models. In both modes, the transmission's shift points are automatically altered coming into and out of corners for sharper acceleration.
This mode provides the optimal balance of fuel efficiency, engine performance and, on the IS 350 F SPORT, the degree of road feel.
In ECO mode, the throttle response and engine power output are moderated for increased fuel efficiency. Other vehicle systems are also optimized for reduced power consumption.
BAD WEATHER? GOOD NEWS.
Standard on the all-new IS 300 and available on the IS 350, all-wheel drive helps provide enhanced traction and control.
Fun doesn't take the day off for foul weather. By monitoring current driving conditions, available all-wheel drive automatically allocates engine power between the front and rear axles from 50/50 to as much as 30/70. This can provide improved traction and control on a wide range of road surfaces and in inclement conditions.
