Lexus IS IS300 2021

The 2021 Lexus IS 300 range of configurations is currently priced from $61,500. Our most recent review of the 2021 Lexus IS 300 resulted in a score of 7.8 out of 10 for that particular example.

Carsguide Contributing journalist Peter Anderson had this to say at the time: The new IS is a lot like the old one because it, uh, is. But there's a lot of new stuff onboard and a much fresher face on what was already a good car. It would be nice if the transmission went back to the way it was and perhaps the IS would be more competitive with a bit more space in the back, but you can't get away from just how nice a car it is. A rough and tumble kind of family might struggle a bit because you don't want to ruin the nice leather, but the quality is absolutely rock-solid, it's not outrageously expensive and nobody hates their Lexus.

Lexus IS IS300 2021 Interior

It hasn't changed as much as it should have. The brand has been pretty reserved with the enhancements in the cabin, though the new 10.3-inch touchscreen - which now sits 15cm closer - is finally equipped with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Still no wireless charging, no USB-C charging, and no head-up display. It's looking and feeling its age in here, and the back seat space and storage could be better too.

Lexus IS IS300 2021 Speed

We asked Lexus Australia for 0-100km/h sprint times for the new-look Lexus IS, but the company said it doesn't have them. The IS350 would be quickest of the three, though.

Lexus IS IS300 2021 Seats

There are five seats in the Lexus IS, but only the F Sport models get full leather trim. The others are fake leather. That's cool in an eco-way, but maybe you really want cow hide. The fifth seat - the middle rear - is largely theoretical, too, as the back is pretty tight.
