IS2002

New for 2002, the IS 300's much-anticipated manual-transmission model is an impressive addition to the series. It combines the distinctive race-inspired styling of the original IS 300 with adrenaline-pumping performance -- a dream for true driving enthusiasts. Another new feature for the IS 300 5-Speed is its sport-tuned suspension, which makes the handling even more responsive.

With its bold styling and slick-shifting, high-powered performance, the IS 300 5-Speed is as breathtaking to look at as it is to drive.

IS2002

With the launch of the 2001 IS 300, Lexus took luxury and performance in a totally unexpected direction. The 2002 IS 300 E-Shift has been renamed for the Formula One-inspired, push-button shifting system -- just one of the features that makes this model such a thrill to drive.

With its sophisticated blend of luxury, innovative style and effortless handling, the next-generation IS 300 takes performance to the next level.

New For 2002

Standard Features:

  • - Front side-curtain airbag Supplemental Restraint System (SRS)[1]
Optional Features:

IS2002

With the success and critical acclaim of the 2001 IS 300 launch, Lexus introduces a new variation for 2002 -- the IS 300 SportCross. Its unique five-door styling sets it apart on the road, blending the striking look of the IS 300 sedan with the sportiness of an SUV. The IS 300 SportCross allows you to experience the best of both worlds, with features like Formula One-inspired E-shift combined with impressively designed storage capability.

No matter how active your lifestyle, the IS 300 SportCross is the innovative way to go.

[1] Brake Assist is designed to help the driver take full advantage of the benefits of ABS. It is not a substitute for safe driving practices. Braking effectiveness also depends on proper brake-system maintenance and tire and road conditions. [2] The Lexus driver's, front passenger's, front seat-mounted side-impact and front side-curtain airbags are a Supplemental Restraint System (SRS). The driver's and front passenger's airbags are designed to inflate in a severe frontal collision. The side-impact and side-curtain airbags are designed to inflate in certain types of severe side-impact collisions. In all other accidents, the airbags will not inflate. To decrease the risk of injury from a deploying airbag, always wear seatbelts, sit upright in the middle of the seat, and do not lean against the door. Do not put objects in front of an airbag or around the seatback. Do not use rearward-facing child seats in any front passenger seat. The force of a deploying airbag SRS may cause serious injury. Please see the Owner's Manual for further instructions. [3] 17 x 7.0-in wheels with 215/45ZR17 tires are expected to experience greater tire wear than the optional equipment tires. Tire life may be substantially less than 20,000 miles, depending on driving conditions. [4] The Lexus DVD Navigation System is designed to assist in locating an address or point of interest. Discrepancies may be encountered between the system and your actual location. Changes in street names, road closures, traffic flow or other road system changes may affect the accuracy of the mapping software.
