Lexus IS350 2021

The 2021 Lexus IS 350 range of configurations is currently priced from $74,877. Our most recent review of the 2021 Lexus IS 350 resulted in a score of 7.6 out of 10 for that particular example.

Carsguide Contributing journalist Peter Anderson had this to say at the time: The IS350 is perhaps the definitive IS in the current range, with all of the signature smoothness and plushness I've come to enjoy whenever I have the chance. Yeah, I'm getting old, sue me. The hybrid maybe just as smooth and pleasant with its electric motor joining the internal combustion engine, but it doesn't have the character of the six.

Lexus IS350 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 IS350 2021 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Lexus IS 350 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Mustang, 370Z, IS350F, 86 or MX-5?

    If you don’t want a convertible, which rules out the MX-5 as my easy first pick, then the 86 is the car for driving enjoyment on a reasonable budget. But don’t overlook its Subaru twin, the BRZ, which is my choice of the two. Both get The Tick, having shared our Car of the Year award.

  • Lexus or Mercedes-Benz?

    The Benz is so far ahead of the Lexus that it's not even a contest. The C-Class gets The Tick and is also one of the favourites for our Car of the Year award. I wouldn't bother with the C250 unless it has some standard features you like, because the C200 is a brilliant car.

  • Lexus IS350 premature brake disc wear

    It is very low kays to have to machine the discs. The squeal you're hearing is not normal, so I would take the car to a brake specialist, who I'm sure would be able to help you fix the problem. Maybe the discs don't need replacing. If they do you could use aftermarket rotors, which should be cheaper than the factory ones.

Lexus IS350 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 IS350 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.
