A new model, the IS 200t, has a turbocharged inline-four engine paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. The IS 300 has also been introduced. It has the same V-6 as the IS 350 but denotes the addition of all-wheel drive and a six-speed automatic transmission. Word is the IS 200t’s engine, which Lexus plucked from the NX 200t small crossover, will be really responsive. We’ll see. If true, we’ll be excited to see an F Sport model.
