New 2024 Lexus IS Redesign, Models, Interior – The 2024 Lexus IS is set to be completely redesigned, which makes sense as the current generation has been on the market since 2013. While there were rumors about discontinuing the compact sedan due to crossover development, it will continue to be part of the company’s lineup and will look better than ever with a new design, improved performance, and a more luxurious interior. We expect to see it sometime next year.
The 2024 Lexus IS redesign will bring a plethora of novelties, including a new style. According to recent reports, the new model will maintain a traditional sedan layout but with a host of new features. It is possible that there won’t be significant changes, as the new model will continue the evolution of the current design language based on the popular spindle grille style. While we don’t have details on potential changes in length, a slightly longer wheelbase is highly likely.
Exterior and Interior
Unlike the new Supra, the 2024 Lexus IS will not feature BMW’s cabin design. Instead, we will see Lexus’ new interior layout, which is expected to feature high-quality materials and a sophisticated design, much like the current model. However, we can expect significant changes in terms of technology features, particularly with the infotainment system.
Currently, the system is difficult to use and lacks important smartphone integration features like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. As we previously mentioned, the new model may also be slightly larger, providing more legroom and, especially, cargo space. The current 2024 Lexus IS model has one of the smallest trunks in its class, with only 10.8 cubic feet behind the rear seats.
According to numerous reports, the 2024 Lexus IS is expected to receive an entirely new engine lineup, possibly from the Bavarian carmaker. It is rumored that the new model will have a lot in common with the new Supra, particularly in terms of drivetrain and other mechanical components.
Currently, the IS offers two engines: a compact 2.0-liter turbo-4 for base models and a popular 3.5-liter V6 for higher-end models, which generates approximately 335 horsepower and is expected to be limited to the 2024 Lexus IS 350.
We anticipate at least one more engine option, possibly a turbo-four unit, but it is still unknown whether it will come from Toyota or the Bavarian company. An 8-speed automatic transmission is expected, with RWD being standard and AWD being optional.
2024 Lexus IS Release Date and Price
As for the release date of the 2024 Lexus IS, the latest reports suggest that the new generation will arrive next year, although more precise dates are still forthcoming. In terms of pricing, the new model should not feature significant changes compared to the current one, which starts at approximately $42,500.
