Sleeper performance

The 2014 Lexus IS F is about as unassuming as a performance car can get. It truly is the wolf in sheep’s clothing you crave from a luxury sedan. Its body is stylish and elegant, but other than its 19-inch wheels and slightly flared fenders, you’d never know the beast hiding under its hood. When you hit the open road, you can unleash this 5.0L V8’s 416 hp and 371 lb-ft of torque and zip this compact sedan to 60 mph in just 4.6 seconds. It’s not just fast in a straight line, either. This sedan hugs the corners like a sports car, satisfying your performance cravings.

5 reasons to buy the 2014 Lexus IS F

1. Wildly powerful 

Lexus did a great job wrapping the IS 500 in a relatively timid body, giving it that sleeper look. Behind the wheel, though, it’s a different story. This luxury sedan packs all the punch you’ll need with a 5.0L V8 powerhouse that delivers 416 hp and 371 lb-ft of torque. This power flows through an eight-speed automatic transmission and out to the rear wheels for a 4.7-second sprint to 60 mph.  

2. Surprisingly nimble 

The Lexus IS F is more than just a straight-line performer. Its tightly tuned sports suspension delivers plenty of stability in the corners so you can carve up back roads with the best of them. Combine this with pinpoint steering and aggressive cross-drilled brakes, and you have a legitimate performer on your hands. 

3. Plenty of luxury inside 

Though it’s a performance sedan, the IS F is also a luxury car at heart. As such, you expect a certain collection of high-end features as standard. The IS F will check many of your boxes with a standard seven-inch infotainment screen, an eight-speaker audio system, HD Radio, SiriusXM, automatic climate control, Bluetooth connectivity, and much more. You can further dress up the IS F with an available 15-speaker audio system, heated and ventilated seats, and more.  

4. Available driver-assist features 

On a long commute, having a collection of driver-assist features can help ease the burden of navigating traffic. The 2014 Lexus IS F helps with several standard driver-assist features. These include lane departure warning, blind spot notification, and cross-traffic warning. You can also opt for more advanced features like adaptive cruise control with a pre-collision system.  

5. Quality materials 

Inside the 2014 IS F, Lexus ensures it has a luxury car feel with lots of premium materials. These include tons of soft-touch materials used on areas you’ll interact with, keeping the cheap-feeling hard plastics to a minimum. On top of this, the front seats strike a nice balance between being soft and supportive while also gripping you in place during more spirited driving.
