History of the Lexus IS | Lexus Blog | Official news and reviews |

History of the Lexus IS Expansion of the Lexus range continued in 1998 with the arrival of the IS 200. Slotting into the compact executive market below the GS (in Europe), and ES (rest of the world) models, the sporting four-door was designed to fight established players in the market, such as the BMW 3-Series, Mercedes-Benz C-Class and Audi A4, but in a uniquely Lexus way to strengthen the Japanese marque’s values within the luxury car sector following its birth in 1989. Development of the XE10-series began in the mid-Nineties. Engineering the project was Nobuaki Katayama, who had previously worked on the rear-wheel drive AE85/86 Corolla before moving on to the company’s Le Mans and rallying ...

Toyota Altezza RS200 – Buyer’s Guide – 146  Performance…

Toyota Altezza RS200 – Buyer’s Guide – 146 February 16th, 2010 by NZPC Japan’s ‘1999 Car of the Year’ should be high on your list if you’re in the market for a medium-sized sedan but don’t want to go down the turbocharged route. We’re talking about Toyota’s answer to the E46 BMW 3-Series, the Altezza, and in particular the RS200 edition, which offers up the best balance of performance and style of all models in the range. The Altezza is the Japanese domestic market (JDM) version of the luxury Lexus IS200. The two cars share many similarities but there are enough differences to set them apart. On the same platform, Altezzas were built in two ...

Osaka Auto Messe 2013: Hot Picks | Speedhunters

Osaka Auto Messe 2013: Hot Picks Next Chapter Now that I’ve shared some of my initial thoughts and observations from this year’s Osaka Auto Messe, I thought I’d go ahead and jump right in with a Spotlight-O-Rama with some of my favorite cars from the show. I’ll begin with the tough looking Toyota 86 you see above. Built by Todoroki Auto, this hachi-roku seems to take a lot of influence from Japan’s AE86 street drift cars. I believe the unpainted front and rear bumpers were left as a direct throwback to the AE86, and the large katakana Toyota logos are also a cool touch. The car sits low on a set of Stance coilovers turned down to the max with custom Todoroki Auto arms. The wheels ...

Lexus IS300 SportCross — Short Take Road Test — Car Reviews — Car and Driver

Lexus IS300 SportCross If it looks like a station wagon, you just don’t get it. Readers of continuing immersion in this journal over the past 40-some years will say, Yup, that’s what it is, all right, when we describe this Lexus as a shooting brake. Affluent Brits of yore occasionally had a sporting coupe, something from Aston maybe, cut and welded into a wagonlike conveyance for those afternoons of grousing around with the pointers and the Purdys. Or pheasanting around. At least that’s the way American scribes portrayed the cars. Slaves to accuracy will note that British writers use shooting brake pretty much synonymously with station wagon. Anyway, this IS300 SportCross ...

AL INGHAM // Toyota Altezza

Toyota Altezza So in a flurry of random events, God comes to the party, answers some prayer, and what-d-ya-know… we have a new car! In what was possibly the easiest car trade in history, we went from going up to have a look at it, to driving it home. It started out with a bit of a budget, which involved some money that was on Term deposit, which wasn’t available until the end of the month. Thanks to some generous parents who loaned us the extra, we moved from having to wait two weeks, to being able to pay the next day. The car is a 1998 Toyota Altezza RS200. It is blue. And it rolls a lot smoother than my Mini. It has a 2.0 litre 3S-GE BEAMS engine which has a beautiful balance between ...

COMPREHENSIVE REVIEW: Toyota Altezza AS200 (Lexus IS200)/ RS200 BEAMS DUAL VVTI COMPREHENSIVE REVIEW: Toyota Altezza AS200 (Lexus IS200)/ RS200 BEAMS DUAL VVTI My (Jeff LIm’s) VIEWS: In this review, I’m covering mainly Lexus IS200. In Japan’s the European IS200’s known as the Altezza AS200. The AS200 is mechanically the same as the UK Lexus IS200, using the same engine and gearboxes. In addition, I’d like to add my own review on Altezza RS200 BEAMS DUAL VVTI. Why I review this model? It’s because of the ROCK SOLID Resale value pricing in Malaysia. A year 1999 Altezza RS200’s up for RM80,000, while a 2000 model Altezza RS200 still fetching RM88,000. A 2001 model’s ...

Will we see the return of the 5-door Lexus IS wagon? — my.IS — Lexus IS Forum

Will we see the return of the 5-door Lexus IS wagon? Aside from bemoaning how the Lexus IS morphed from unique, sporty, inline six-powered styling innovator that begat Altezza taillights and chronograph-style instrumentation into an elegant and still sporty but larger and heavier, less creatively-styled and more mass market-appealing sedan, a number of you seriously miss the option of an update on the rarer-than-a-Bentley IS300 SportCross hatchback-cum-wagon. A brief write-up from the United Kingdom’s Autocar magazine. however, informs us that Lexus is likely to introduce an estate variant on the next generation of its Lexus IS. while the original model did offer an estate variant, ...
