Lexus offers two models in the entry-luxury category: the IS sport sedan and the ES luxury sedan, and both are top-10-sellers in the luxury segment. The third-generation, sport-oriented, rear-wheel-drive Lexus IS debuted as a 2015 model with more aggressive styling and the Lexus signature spindle grille. It is now offered in three trim levels defined by three different engine choices : the IS 200t, the IS 300 AWD and the IS 350 with available all-wheel drive. The previous IS 250 and IS 250 AWD are discontinued for 2016. The IS 200t is powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter engine that produces 241 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque, combined with an 8-speed automatic transmission. The IS 300 AWD derives power from a 3.5-liter V6 that produces 255 horsepower and 236 lb-ft of torque, and the IS 350 gets power from a 306-horsepower 3.5-liter V6.
