The Lexus IS could never be described as a conservative car, and the 2021 facelift added even more character to this compact luxury sedan. In front, there are slim bi-LED headlights with daytime running lamps that flank an even larger spindle grille with a three-dimensional, polyhedral pattern. All versions have LED taillights with a blade-style rear light bar that spans the width of the body. On the base vehicle, there are 18-inch alloy wheels, while the F Sport derivatives have 19-inch alloys with a dark metallic finish (or optional black 19-inch split-seven-spoke BBS alloys). All F Sport trims come with a sporty F Sport exterior appearance package with more aggressive bumpers, a black grille surround, and a trunklid spoiler. Premium triple-beam LED headlights are available on some trims, as is a carbon fiber rear spoiler on the F Sports. A power tilting/sliding sunroof is available on all trims but standard on none. Only 480 of the F Sport Appearance package will be available, decking out the car in Incognito paint and rendering the roof and hood Obsidian Black.
Dimensions include a length of 185.4 inches, a width of 72.4 inches, a height of 56.5 inches (56.7 inches on the AWD versions), and a 110.2-inch wheelbase. The base variant has a curb weight of 3,715 pounds, while the 350 F Sport in AWD guise is the heaviest at 3,880 lbs.

The base model Lexus IS is offered in a choice of seven colors. Those that won't add anything to the final bill are Atomic Silver, Caviar, Matador Red Mica, and Grecian Water. For $500 extra, Eminent White Pearl, Iridium, and Cloudburst Gray are availed. The F Sport Design and F Sport versions deviate by dropping Eminent White Pearl and Matador Red Mica, but this trim does add Ultra White ($500), Infrared ($595), and Ultrasonic Blue Mica 2.0 ($595). Just 480 F Sport Appearance packages will be made available with the car painted in exclusive Incognito paint and the roof and hood finished in Obsidian Black.
