The 2018 Lexus IS 300 F Sport is a compact sedan offered as a standalone trim, starting off at a base MSRP of $39,205. For that price, it mainly competes with the Cadillac ATS, the BMW 3 Series, and the Audi A4. The IS 300 F Sport offers 2 powertrain options. The base engine is a 2.0L turbocharged inline 4 capable of making 241 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. If more power is required, there is also a 260 horsepower-making 3.5L V6. The Inline-4 engine is mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission whereas the V6 engine comes standard with AWD and 6-speed automatic transmission. The IS 300 F Sport reaches 60 MPH from zero in 6.9 seconds on its base engine, which gets pumped up to 6.1 seconds with the V6 engine. Depending on the powertrain, the IS 300 F Sport can manage a combined fuel economy between 22 and 26 MPG. While we’re on the topic of choices, the 8 striking colors the IS 300 F Sport comes in really pull you towards itself.
