Modifications include a Limited-Slip Differential (LSD); 19in forged alloy wheels; Blind-Spot Monitor (BSM); and Rear Cross Traffic Alert with Automatic Braking (RCTAB).
The union between man and machine is the thrust of the Lexus Driving Signature (LDS). In its purest essence, it pursues linear operation faithful to the driver’s intentions with the goal to amplify confidence, comfort, and overall love of driving.
The Lexus IS was born from the LDS philosophy – the very first model to be developed from the ground up to showcase it, to be exact. Along with being a car that is the foundation of Lexus driving performance, the IS has earned popularity through its high-level driving performance—and the fun of driving a rear-wheel-drive sport sedan.
For the driving enthusiast, there is no greater satisfaction that can come from being one with a vehicle as it tackles the corners with aplomb. Thus, to enhance the driving experience even further, the Lexus IS 350 F Sport now comes standard with a Limited-Slip Differential (LSD).
When paired with the 3.5-liter V6 motor that develops 315ps @ 6,600rpm and 380Nm @ 4,800 to 4,900rpm, the sophisticated LSD delivers power to the rear wheels in such a manner that will boost the confidence of every driver. Maximum acceleration out of a corner with full control are traits of an LSD tuned for enthusiasts. As such, the LSD is an integral part of any sport sedan’s arsenal and will bring a sense of enjoyment that cannot be readily found elsewhere.
Complementing this sporty and aggressive LSD is the availability of stunning 19-inch forged alloy wheels. Lightweight with a high rigidity appearance, it is 10% lighter compared to the previous F-Sport alloy wheels.
There’s more to performance than speed alone. It’s about feeling truly connected to your vehicle, the road, and your senses. When you’re behind the wheel, your senses are constantly working to keep you safe. But what if they were augmented by your car’s ‘senses’, too?
The Blind-Spot Monitor (BSM) and Rear Cross Traffic Alert with Automatic Braking (RCTAB) now come standard with the Lexus IS 350 F Sport. These safety features are an essential addition to Lexus Safety System +2, a suite of safety features which include a Pre-Collision System (PCS); Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC) ; Automatic High Beam (AHB); Lane Tracing Assist (LTA); and Lane Departure Alert (LDA). Lexus’s advanced safety systems go beyond human perception, to care for you and your passengers, intuitively and intelligently.

The Lexus IS 350 F Sport is a chief model among these.
