Engines & Drivetrains
Prospective IS owners have the ability to choose between four available powertrains, and either a rear- or all-wheel drive configuration. Those looking for the thrill of a rear-wheel drive vehicle can choose between the IS 300 or IS 500 RWD. But with the unpredictable winter weather that Calgary is known for, the versatility of AWD may be the sensible choice for drivers in the Alberta region.
Lexus Driving Signature
The 2023 IS is the first Lexus to offer the brand-new Lexus Driving Signature system, which aims to strengthen the link between driver and vehicle. This 2023 IS was tested on the new Shimoyama 5.3 km test bed, where it was pushed to its limits in bends and corners, as well as in a range of driving circumstances, in order to outperform previous versions. The 2023 IS’s performance stems entirely from an improved rigid chassis for superior steering, all while improving driving comfort and lowering noise. The suspension was also modified with new parts and materials, and the unsprung weight was reduced.
IS 500 F SPORT Performance
The high-output IS 500 F SPORT Performance represents the pinnacle of the Lexus IS lineup. One of the last luxury sport sedans on the market that’s equipped with a naturally-aspirated V8 engine, this 5.0L powerplant delivers glorious sounds out of its dual stacked tail pipes and generates an impressive 472 horsepower. Driving-enthusiasts will appreciate its performance capabilities, thanks in part to its performance-oriented upgrades such as an Adaptive Variable Suspension, Yamaha rear-performance dampers, a Torsen limited slip differential and more.

The iconic Lexus spindle grille is the most prominent feature that dominates the front-fascia of the IS. Flanked by sleek LED head- and daytime running lights, the result is a wide and low-profile front-end design. An L-shaped light bar covers the rear of the vehicle to ensure those you pass will never forget you. Choose from unique colour options like Grecian Water and Cloudburst Grey to attract any and all eyes on the road.
Distinct Athletic Styling
Few brands offer an elegant, luxurious design that seamlessly combines an athletic, sporty aesthetic quite like Lexus does. The IS is a great example of this premium Japanese craftsmanship. The sedan is both sleek and bold, thanks to the car’s stylish lines across the body’s profile, and muscular fenders that hint at the power underneath.

Just like Lexus blends luxury and sport, so does the interior mix comfort and style effortlessly. The front passenger seat has 8-way power functionality, and trimmed in gorgeous NuLuxe, keeping you secure whether it’s over a long road trip or just a commute into work.
Every aspect of the IS’s interior was made to fit seamlessly with each other, creating a sporty aesthetic throughout. The instrument panel, centre cluster and display all blend in with each other to foster an interior that’s incredibly easy on the eyes. Not to mention the two-tone colour scheme providing a sharp accent.
The IS is good-looking and smart, too! Dual zone automatic climate control has touch-sensitive controls and allows you and your passenger to enjoy your own different temperatures. A smart-key with push-button start gets you into your IS quickly and on the go in a flash, while an available power moonroof brings the outside Calgary beauty that much closer.
