Lexus IS by TRD

In the auto field there is a great competition between brands, each one of them trying as hard as they can to be the best. Due to this, another competition is on the run at the same time, between tuning companies, which make attempts to bring the most fashionable elements on the cars. TRD (Toyota Racing Development) is the in-house tuning shop for all Toyota, Lexus and Scion cars. Their last work is on the 2014 Lexus IS.


The 2014 Lexus IS can be equipped with a new series of accessories provided by TRD. As styling, the car can receive an aerodynamic body kit which consists of a front spoiler, revised side skirts, a rear diffuser and a trunk-mounted spoiler.  If clients wish, they can also place a four-tailpipe sports exhaust system on the vehicle. The sedan can ride on 19 inch forged aluminum wheels, assisted by a sport-tuned suspension with new shocks and springs. The last element has the job of delivering improved ride quality and better steering feel.


The 2014 Lexus IS keeps the same engine configurations. The Lexus IS 250 and the Lexus IS 350 will be powered by a 2.5-liter V6 engine, respectively by a 3.5-liter V6. In terms of safety, there are ten airbags and various advanced systems like automatic high beam, blind spot monitor, lane departure alert and rear cross traffic alert.
