Lexus Driving Signature

The IS is the first Lexus in 2021 to take on the all-new Lexus Driving Signature, which further strengthens the bond between car and driver. Tested on the new Shimoyama 5.3 km test bed, this new IS was pushed to the limit around curves and corners and a variety of driving situations to outperform its past models. This is all bred from an enhanced rigid chassis for superior steering while aiding driving comfort and reducing noise. The suspension was also redesigned with new parts and materials, and with a reduction of the unsprung weight.


Three different powertrains are available on the IS, depending on your trim. The choice remains yours, too, with rear-wheel-drive vs all-wheel-drive. Want the driving fun of a RWD? The IS 300 RWD is for you. But we do live in Calgary after all, so the versatility of AWD with whatever elements Alberta decides to pit us against is a sensible choice for the region. 


The IS exists with a thrilling level of performance just on its base trims, but the F SPORT models deliver performance on an entirely new tier. F SPORT wheels provide a bold look while also allowing better corner force. Control the sound that roars from the engine with the active sound control, pumping it up when wanted, and dialing it down when you want your IS to be quiet. A Dynamic Handling Package is available for you to master cornering control, with an Adaptive Variable Suspension that instantly adjusts to your needs.

Interior & Exterior Design

Exterior Design

Redesigned Exterior

The legendary Lexus spindle grille has been freshened up, doubling down on its unmistakable presence. Beside it is the aerodynamic headlights that brighten the road ahead of the IS, and help frame its low centre of gravity.

Distinct Styling

A new feature on the IS this year is its gorgeous light bar that covers the entire rear of the sedan, coming in an L-shaped blade, it’s unmissable for those trying to keep up behind you. New colour options like Grecian Water and Sonic Chrome are available to truly personalize your 2021 IS.

Athletic Build

Few brands mix luxury and sport style quite like Lexus does, and the IS is a picture of this craftsmanship. The sedan is both sleek and bold, thanks to the lines across the body’s profile, and muscular fenders that hint at the power underneath, ready to take on available 19-inch wheels.

Interior Design


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. 

Sporty Elements

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-town colour scheme providing a sharp accent.

Smart Features

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.
