2021 Lexus IS gets stiffer, lighter, but hardly overhauled
After a week’s delay, Lexus has unveiled its 2021 IS sedan. The good news? If you’re a fan of the current generation, this lightly refreshed model won’t scare you off. We noted earlier this month that an extensive update of Lexus’ compact luxury sedan didn’t make much sense—the segment isn’t exactly on fire recently, and the COVID-19 pandemic gave the automotive industry a serious wallop. The significant improvements for the 2021 IS lineup, ultimately, lie in its increased rigidity, tweaked suspension, and mild infotainment updates.
