Lexus has taken the wraps of a slightly updated 2015 IS which has received different LED fog lights promising to provide improved visibility. More significant changes can be found inside the cabin where the model has received Siri Eyes compatibility along with piano black accents on the window switches and instrument panel. There’s also a fresh Stratus Gray interior cabin color along with a better backup monitor while the F Sport variant now come with heated and ventilated front seats. In addition, the car now benefits from a Lexus Enform Remote system which grants control of several vehicle functions (climate control, door locks, etc.) from a mobile app.
The 2015 Lexus IS continues with the same V6 2.5-liter engine outputting 204 bhp (152 kW) along with a beefier V6 3.5-liter engine generating 306 bhp (228 kW). The first one is connected to a 6-speed automatic transmission while the larger motor works together with a Sport Direct Shift 8-speed automatic ‘box.
