Jan. 16, 2013

After releasing a couple of pictures last week, Lexus officially introduced the next-generation 2014 IS sedan today at the NAIAS in Detroit.

Both the IS 250 and IS 350 will now be available with rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive, as well as an F Sport Package.

The new IS has a 70-mm longer wheelbase than its predecessor and is 10-mm wider, while offering a smoother, more accurate steering feel. It also features a new headlamp cluster design with Lexus' signature L-shaped daytime running lights below.

Inside, the cabin of the 2014 Lexus IS provides a driver-focused environment with the latest advancements in HMI (Human-Machine Interface) technology.

The 204- and 306-horsepower V6 engines still in the lineup offer four driving modes including ECO, NORMAL, SPORT/SPORT S, and SPORT S+, allowing a combination of economy, comfort, performance and handling tailored to the driver's preferences.

We'll keep you posted on pricing and on-sale dates for the 2014 Lexus IS as soon as they are announced.
