The All New 2014 IS: redesigned and making waves with its commanding presence

The all-new Lexus 2014 IS, completely redesigned model with fierce agressive styling inside and out, refuses to go unnoticed and is making waves around the country. Muscular and menacing, its outfitted with the new Lexus signature spindle grill, L-finesse daytime running lights, and a much wider stance giving it a stronger presence. Engaging the driver with poise, sharp steering, precise throttle, and a smooth-shifting transmission that always seems to pick the right gear, its a pleasure to drive: inside, the contoured seats hug the body and give a sense of being in a sports car. Its Car and Driver’s top pick over the BMW 335i and the Cadillac ATS 3.6! Look for our ads during NFL and college football games and golf championships this weekend!
