Drive Like You Mean It in the 2017 Lexus IS

What does the 2017 Lexus IS have that your current ride doesn’t? A track-tuned chassis, tested and fine-tuned on six of the world’s most iconic racetracks, including the Fuji speedway. The performance enhancements designed by Lexus as a result of all that testing provide you with a visceral connection to the road that you’ve got to experience for yourself. And what better place to do that than at Keyes Cars?

Okay, so you might be wondering what exactly we mean by “performance enhancements.” First up, the 2017 Lexus IS is built using innovative laser-screw welding techniques, a special adhesive bonding process, and varied panel thicknesses. That all adds up to a rigid body, providing better handling and control. The car also sports a longer wheelbase and wider track than previous models, which adds agility and stability to this impressive automobile. And then there’s the double-wishbone suspension system, which offers greater sway rigidity in the front, along with the multi-link rear suspension, which helps to increase grip.

Drive Mode Select gives you the power to get the most out of your Lexus IS, no matter what type of drive you’re in the mood for. Eco Mode moderates throttle response and engine power output for better fuel efficiency. Normal Mode provides the perfect balance of fuel efficiency and engine performance. And then there’s Sport S Mode, which alters the powertrain to deliver faster gear changes and more dynamic throttle mapping. The 2017 Lexus IS 350 F Sport even boasts a Sport S+ Mode that reduces body lean and further tightens the suspension.
