Looking for a Lexus IS owners manual? See our listing of IS300 manuals below. The Lexus IS300 was introduced in 2001 as a sporty sedan that was both powerful and stylish. The following year the SportCross edition was introduced, and although it looked a bit more like a station wagon, it still enjoyed the high performance and stylish lines that came with its predecessor.
The IS series was a surprising innovation for Lexus, which had previously been thought of as a luxury car line that didn’t go out of its comfort zone in search of power. The IS300 changed that, and opened the eyes of a younger generation of car buyers who had previously largely ignored the Lexus brand.
The IS300 has earned many awards, among them J.D. Power and Associates naming both the first generation IS300 and the SportCross the best vehicles in the entry-level luxury class in 2005. In 2007 the Lexus IS won the Intellichoice/AutoPacific award for Aspirational Luxury Cars in 2006 the British magazine Top Gear named the Lexus IS the Executive Car of the Year.
Favorable comparisons of the Lexus IS series have been made with the BMW 328i and similar powerful yet stylish cars.
