Lexus IS 2008 Overview

The Lexus IS is all-new for 2007 in the Middle East, although other markets have been getting 2.5-litre and 3.5-litre versions since 2006. The local market only gets a 3.0-litre V6 engine. The IS 300 offers the most sporting ride of the Lexus range, going head-to-head directly with the Germans in the enthusiast market. The rear-wheel drive IS comes with an impressive set of standard features that includes a premium sound system with CD auto-changer MP3 and WMA compatibility along with 13 speakers, power windows and front seats, keyless entry and start, cruise control, HID headlamps with auto-leveling system, and a fabric interior. The numerous options include a Mark Levinson premium surround sound system with DVD and 14 speakers, moonroof; ventilated front seats, navigation system, power rear window sunshade, auto wiper system, adaptive front-lighting system, rear view monitor system and park assist system. Safety features that come standard include dual front airbags, knee airbags, side-impact airbags, curtain airbags, electronic stability control, traction control, ABS brakes, and electronic brake-force distribution.
