The dimensions of the 2021 Lexus IS differ very slightly: it is slightly longer, wider and taller, although the biggest changes are obvious. Starting from the front, with a more prominent grille, new LED headlights, new air intakes through a profi look, a new expression line, new 18-inch alloy wheels, new doors to the rear, where a new optical group dominates that crosses the entire rear horizontally.
This Lexus IS is the fourth generation of the average Japanese luxury brand sedan. It came to replace the model launched in 2013 (received a style change in 2017). Let’s see what new features it introduces.
2021 Lexus IS Exterior
At the front is a newly designed grille, covered with a three-dimensional polyhedral structure and the F SPORT model has an air inlet at the bottom of the grille, which allows for better brake cooling, a design inspired by the F Version of the Lexus RC.
They completely changed the headlights, which are now narrower and have L-shaped LED daytime running lights. According to Lexus, they were an important part of the design, as they were introduced both on the grille and on the sides and the lines that came out of them. They extend from the side to the back of the vehicle.
The ultimate goal is for the design changes to show how it has been dynamically improved, something we’ll see later.
