Choosing A 2023 Lexus IS: 350 F-Sport Vs. 500 F-Sport Performance

The Lexus IS is a premium small sedan with striking looks, an upscale interior, and powertrain options that can pump adrenaline. Like every other Lexus, the compact IS is reliable and easier to maintain, making it a popular choice for compact luxury sedan lovers on a tight budget.

The 2023 Lexus IS lease deal comes in different flavors, and it can be a daunting task to narrow down your choice if you are not used to Lexus’ trim levels. This article compares the two high-level F-Sport models to help you make an informed decision.

IS 350 F-Sport

The 2023 Lexus IS is available in 10 trims, and the 350 F-Sport sits above the IS 300 models. It uses the more powerful engine, a 3.5-liter V6 that develops 311 horses and 280 lb-ft of torque. The 350 F Sport can be had with all-wheel drive, which employs a six-speed automatic transmission, or rear-wheel drive with an enhanced eight-speed automatic transmission. Highlights of the sports-tuned 350 F Sport include.

  • F SPORT–tuned suspension
  • F SPORT 19-in split-five-spoke alloy wheels with Dark Metallic finish and summer tires
  • F SPORT bolstered heated and ventilated front seats
  • 10-way power-adjustable driver’s seat (including lumbar). 8-way power-adjustable front passenger’s seat
  • 4-way adjustable headrests
  • Heated leather-trimmed steering wheel
  • Black Geometric interior trim
  • Embossed interior door trim
  • Aluminum sport pedals
  • Rear armrest with cupholders
  • Rain-sensing windshield wipers
  • Auto-dimming rearview mirror with HomeLink system

500 F-Sport Performance

The 500 F-Sport Performance model is just a step behind the range-topping IS trim. It gets the gutsier engine, a 5.0-liter naturally-aspirated V-8 that pumps out 472 horsepower and 395 lb-ft of torque. The F-Sport Performance’s engine pairs exclusively with rear-wheel drive and an eight-speed Sport Direct-Shift automatic transmission. It sprints from 0-60 mph in a brisk 4.4 seconds. The 500 F-Sport Performance also gets sports-oriented upgrades like enhanced drive modes and a F SPORT–tuned Adaptive Variable Suspension. Other highlights of this model include.

  • Power tilt-and-slide moonroof
  • Satin Trim interior
  • F SPORT Performance front door-sill scuff plates
  • Power tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel
  • Lexus Memory System for driver’s seat, outside mirrors, and steering wheel
  • Raised hood
  • Dark Chrome–finish window trim
  • F SPORT Performance 19-inch split-10-spoke Enkei alloy wheels with dark finish
  • Intuitive Parking Assist with Auto Braking and Rear Cross-Traffic Braking
  • Stacked quad exhaust tips
  • Two-piece aluminum 14.0-inch front and 12.7-inch rear brake rotors

Review From Ashley Smith: This was my first experience using a leasing company. In the past, I leased my cars directly through the dealership and always felt that I didn’t receive a fair price. I had such a pleasant experience with VIP Auto Lease from the first time I called to when my car was delivered. Michael Jeffries was a pleasure to work with. He was very responsive and able to get me a great deal. He made the leasing process smooth and easy. I was so impressed there were no hidden fees and that the car was delivered right to my house! I will definitely use VIP Auto Lease again in the future! Thank you again!
