2022 Lexus IS

Small. Grainy. Blurry and distorted.

So far that's not much. But it is ht next-generation Lexus IS sedan. So at least we know for sure there will be a "next-generation".

A while ago, some Lexus exec had hinted at a possible new body type to replace the slow-selling IS.
Something more like a wagon. Or at least a fastback/hatchback type.

But it looks like what we are getting is just another small sedan. Or, that crazy camouflage could be hiding something a bit more interesting.
Just repeating the small sedan act might not be enough to boost sales.

(They sold less than 15 000 of these last year...)



The 2021 Lexus IS will be revealed online on Tuesday, June 9 at 4 p.m. Eastern.


Lexus is soon also bringing out the 2021 ES 250 AWD, which features the Camry’s 2.5L 4-cylinder engine.

Isn't the new IS being designed with Mazda? Using a Mazda inline 6?

Victor is so on top of all of this. He's been reliably accurate.
