A 10.3-inch colour touchscreen and inbuilt satellite navigation. A sound system with CD/DVD player, digital radio reception, Bluetooth connectivity for audio streaming, and at least eight speakers.
Smart key entry, which lets you unlock the doors and drive away without removing the key from your bag or pocket.
Dual-zone climate control, which allows different temperatures to be set for each side of the cabin.
Active cruise control, which can slow you automatically to the speed of a vehicle in front on the highway.
Powered height and reach adjustment for the steering wheel, which carries buttons for operating the cruise control, the sound system and your phone.
Leather upholstery, with both front seats power-adjustable and heated.
Headlights that use long-lived LEDs, come on automatically in low light, and dip automatically at night for oncoming drivers. LED taillights and daytime running lights. Windscreen wipers that operate automatically when it rains.
A reversing camera, and front and rear parking sensors. A tyre pressure monitor, which alerts you if a tyre is going flat (it can give you time to get a slow puncture seen to before it ruins your day).
Ten airbags. Automatic emergency braking
that works at city and highway speeds, and lane-departure warning. (For the placement of airbags, and for more on Lexus IS safety systems, please open the Safety section below.)
Electronic stability control, which can help you control a skid. All new cars must have this feature.
The Lexus IS is available with different colours and finishes inside the cabin: buyers of the Luxury and Sports Luxury get the choice of four interior colours, while buyers of the F-Sport can choose from three colours.
The IS is covered by a four-year, 100,000km warranty.
