Meet the 2014 Lexus IS 350 F-Sport image

Toyota’s luxury brand Lexus has recently released the very first official images with the brand new 2014 IS 350 F-Sport, ahead of its public debut scheduled for the 2013 Detroit Motor Show.

The 2014 Lexus IS has been already teased a couple of times but now the model is being placed into the spotlights for the first time with the help of a few official images, which are revealing its exterior and interior designs. According to the car manufacturer, the 2014 Lexus IS in question is a 350 F-Sport and this means that the model is coming with an aerodynamic body kit, with a tuned chassis, with a lowered suspension, a sportier interior design and more.

Power to the 2014 Lexus IS will be provided by a 2.5 liter V6 engine which should produce a total output of 200 HP (149 kW), being followed by the 3.5 liter V6 with its 300 HP (224 kW) and by the hybridized 2.5 liter four-cylinder, generating 240 HP (179 kW). The last one will be able to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.9 seconds and it will reach a top speed of 225 km/h (140 mph). Thanks to its CVT, the model will be able to burn 3.8 L / 100 km of fuel (73 mpg UK / 60.7 mpg US) and emit under 100 g/km of CO2. More details on the model will be announced during the 2013 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit.

    It's embarrassing that Lexus keeps on peddling the IS 250 with a V6 yet it only produces 184 HP and maybe up to 200 for the 14 model. Why not go with a 4 cylinder and get much better gas mileage on the entry level offering? So many 4 cylinders today produce much more than 200 HP – Sonata Turbo is 274! If Lexus is going to stick with a V6 – then at least throw in the 6 from the Camry that has 268 HP. Shameful on them for badging the IS 250 as a Lexus with such a wimpy engine.
