Lexus is ready to introduce its beefier, sportier and overall more exciting luxury compact sedan: the all-new IS 200t F SPORT. Boasting a new turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder engine, the new luxury four-door offering pumps out 241 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque, but maintains a respectable fuel efficiency of 22 mpg in the city and 33 mpg on the highway. These new figures are a vast improvement in power over the V6 naturally-aspirated IS 250 model from just last year, which had 204 horsepower and 186 pound-feet of torque, albeit in a larger 2.5 liter displacement engine. Add the aggressive F SPORT package for a highly-tuned suspension setup, bold interior and exterior styling and F SPORT front seats with road-hugging bolsters and you’ll be ready to take on the likes of the BMW 320i, Audi A4 and Mercedes Benz CLA250 in style, class and performance.
