The redesigned Lexus IS brings a mild update that doesn't stray much from the previous model.
It is offered in rear- or all-wheel-drive with a turbocharged four-cylinder engine for rear-wheel-drive.
AWD brings a V6 engine.
Handling is fairly nimble but not all that sporty.
The interior remains very snug and still suffers from a protrusion into the driver's legroom in AWD versions.
