In 2006, the IS compact sports sedan series split into two engine options, creating the IS 250 and IS 350. The IS sedan was originally introduced in 2001, and later became available as a compact wagon. For this new generation, the wagon had vanished but AWD was now available.
The IS 250 was equipped with a more modest V-6, displacing just 2.5 liters. While it was the smallest Lexus engine since the original ES, it generated a substantial 204 horsepower and 185 pound feet of torque. The IS had bulked up to over 3600 pounds, as part of an effort to increase interior space, but it still sped from 0 to 60 mph in about 8 seconds. A six-speed manual transmission was standard, but a six-speed automatic was available. The IS ran best on premium fuel, and consumed it at a rate of 24/32 mpg.
While the IS 250 certainly offered a stable and comfortable ride, its 204 horsepower engine left it in the dust of compact German competitors. The 350 offered considerably better performance. Lexus had revised the the interior for the new generation, to provide a fit and finish more in line with luxury expectations. The SmartAccess keyless system was included as standard equipment. A touchscreen navigation system, Bluetooth capability, back up camera, and premium Mark Levinson audio were available as options.

In 2006, Lexus introduced the new all-wheel drive IS compact sedan. The first generation IS 300, while also offered as a wagon, was only available with a rear-wheel drive type. The IS sedan had replaced the ES as the entry-level offering from the Japanese luxury automaker. While several other versions of the IS were available in other countries, only the IS 250 and 350 sedans were sent to the United States.
The IS 250 was powered by the smallest V-6 that any Lexus had used since the early 1990s: a GR series engine could now be found only on Japanese-market Toyotas. The 2.5 liter 32-valve DOHC engine provided 204 horsepower and 185 pound-feet of torque. The addition of all wheel drive lowered the IS's fuel economy rating, from 24/32 mpg (RWD) to 22/28 mpg. Although the IS was categorized as a performance sedan, the small engine could not keep pace with the BMW 3-Series or Mercedes C-Class power plants. The athletic looking IS did offer a smooth and stable ride, but its sluggishness lowered its value in the compact luxury sedan class. Unlike the RWD IS 250, this model was only available with a 6-speed automatic transmission.
The interior of the IS had been thoroughly reworked, in response to abundant criticism that the prior 300's interior did not really exemplify Lexus quality. A myriad of advanced options were now available, including Bluetooth, touch screen navigation, and rear back camera. The back up camera may seem like just an added extravagance , but owners strongly recommend it. The IS's rear deck is very high and the seating position is quite low, so rear visibility is compromised.
