Lexus updated its smallest, the IS-model range for the 2011. With improved powertrains, little changes to the exterior styling and refreshed interior design, the IS Lexus is trying to compete in the tough class of small, luxury sedans. According to Lexus, the new design elements reflect a further development of Lexus’ L-finesse design philosophy, giving the IS a more distinctive look and character and hallmarking it as a uniquely elegant, muscular and dynamic sports sedan. Sounds great and from the outside the new IS surely looks stylish and sporty, but for me it looks pretty much the same as before.
