5 reasons to buy the 2018 Lexus IS 350

1. Performance at the pedal 

Every 2018 IS 350 comes with a standard 3.5L six-cylinder engine that generates an impressive 311 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque. You'll get where you're going in a jiffy, with the rear-wheel drive trim reaching zero-to-60 in 5.6 seconds and the all-wheel drive achieving it in 5.7 seconds. Grocery runs were never meant to be this much fun. 

2. Traction under your control 

Traction and stability control both come standard on the IS 350, giving you plenty of confidence powering the sedan's rear-wheel drive. Dial up the IS 350's capabilities by shopping for an AWD trim that sends power to the front and rear axles and automatically adjusts the power balance when needed. Backroad trips in inclement weather will never be the same. 

3. Drive with peace of mind 

You'll drive easy knowing the IS 350 comes standard with lane departure warning and lane-keep assist, forward collision warning, and adaptive cruise control. A standard rearview camera makes backing into parking spaces a breeze. Shop for an IS 350 with the available comfort package to add blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert. 

4. Luxury at the ready  

You'll appreciate the IS 350's taste for the finer things, including the sedan's standard eight-way power front seats, heated side mirrors, and sunroof. Getting into the car and starting it up is a breeze, too, with keyless entry and ignition.

Shop for the AWD trim for standard heated front seats. With so many features available, you're sure to find an IS 350 tailored to you. 

5. Tech that's in tune with you 

Each 2018 IS 350 comes with Bluetooth® connectivity and a USB port so you can hop in the car and start playing your favorite music through the 10-speaker sound system. A seven-inch display gives you all the infotainment details, or you can shop for an IS 350 with an optional navigation system that increases the display size to 10.3 inches.
