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.


  1. 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.
