Overview

What's New in the 2017 Lexus IS 200t?

A minor styling revamp comes to the nose and tail, and there are new designs for the alloy wheels. The interior gets revised switchgear on the steering column, redesigned cupholders and a larger 10.3-inch display available with the navigation package. The whole range receives LED headlights, and the previously optional package of advanced safety features is now standard throughout. See the 2017 Lexus IS models for sale near you

Which IS 200t is the Best?

The whole world seems to be going toward turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engines -- they have a fine balance of usable power and fuel efficiency -- so the IS 200t could be a great choice. It might also provide some budget leeway for a few more options, like the Luxury pack. Find a Lexus IS for sale

 

How Much Does a 2017 Lexus IS 200t Cost?

The 2017 Lexus IS comes in 200t, 300 and 350 models.

Standard equipment in the IS 200t ($38,800) includes 17-in wheels (the IS 350 gets 18-in wheels), LED headlights/running lights/fog lights/taillights, heated side mirrors, a sunroof, keyless entry/ignition, dual-zone automatic climate control, a manual tilt-telescopic steering wheel, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, 8-way power front seats with power lumbar adjustment for the driver, premium vinyl upholstery, Bluetooth connectivity, a 7-in display, voice-command capability, Siri Eyes Free and a 10-speaker audio system with a CD player, HD Radio, satellite radio and two USB ports.

Features are pretty much the same for the IS 300 ($41,175) and the IS 350 ($42,345), except for the engines and a few other details.

A Premium options bundle brings a rearview camera and heated/ventilated front seats. Premium Plus brings a blind spot monitoring system with rear cross-traffic alert, rain-sensing wipers and a power adjustable steering wheel. There's also a navigation package that's eligible for the excellent 835-watt/15-speaker Mark Levinson audio system.

The Luxury package incorporates equipment from the Premium and Premium Plus packages and adds front and rear parking sensors, self-dimming side mirrors, leather upholstery, wood trim, a heated steering wheel and memory settings for the driver's seat.

All three IS cars are eligible for the F Sport package. This includes an all-mesh grille, 18-in wheels with wider tires at the rear (18x8 inches up front, 18x8.5 inches out back) and a choice of summer (high-performance) or all-season tires, plus high-friction brake pads and a sportier suspension. It also entails a different front bumper design that deletes the fog lights.

Interior F Sport features include front sport seats with extra lateral support and heated/ventilated functions, aluminum pedals, a black headliner, perforated leather trim and a dedicated instrument cluster. There's even an engine-sound amplifier (unavailable in the 4-cylinder IS 200t) that brings a sportier V6 snort into the cabin.

The rear-wheel-drive version of the F Sport-equipped IS 350 comes with adaptive dampers. This particular variant can also come with a variable-ratio steering system and power adjustment for the steering wheel.

Trunk capacity is 13.8 cu ft., which is better than the class average. For extra space, the rear seatbacks can also split 60/40 and fold down.

Lexus IS 200t Safety

Is the 2017 Lexus IS 200t a Safe Car?

Standard safety equipment includes anti-lock disc brakes with brake assist, traction/stability control and 10 airbags. Lexus Enform Safety Connect is also part of the deal (a free 12-month trial subscription), bringing automatic collision notification, stolen-vehicle location and an emergency-assistance call button.

The Lexus Safety System Plus package becomes standard for 2017. It includes adaptive cruise control, a forward-collision mitigation system that tightens the front seat belts and boosts braking power if necessary, lane-departure warning and intelligent high beams.

Among the options are a rearview camera, front and rear parking sensors and a blind spot monitoring system with rear cross-traffic alert.

In government crash tests, the Lexus IS 350 scored five out of five stars overall: four for front impact protection and five for side impacts. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave the IS the top rating of Good in its main categories and made it a Top Safety Pick+.
