2018 Lexus IS 300

2018 Highlights

For 2018, the Lexus IS 300 gains a four-cylinder and rear-wheel-drive version in its lineup. In actuality, though, this is just last year's IS 200t renamed. The all-wheel-drive version still has a V6 engine, and it gets a 5-horsepower boost (to 260 hp). A few revisions to standard and optional features round out the changes to this year's IS 300.


  • Ride quality is smooth and comfortable on bumpy roads
  • Cabin is well-isolated from noise
  • Offers more features for the money compared to German alternatives


  • Optional Remote Touch infotainment system is distracting to use
  • V6 power compares to smaller turbo engines, but isn't as efficient
  • Handling capabilities do little to create driver excitement
