Lexus always had AWD vehicles. They have never installed it in their most popular sedan – the ES. It shouldn't be hard to do, right?
The vehicles I want to go over were mentioned in passing on some articles – or, not at all. These represent vehicles that I drove for a very short stint at some event or another. Yet, they yield some headline because of their significance. Or, because you asked me privately whether I have driven it or not.
The brief overview of this car goes like this: Lexus revamped the IS for 2021. They concentrated on revising basically everything, while retaining the same platform this third generation model rode on since 2013. Their revisions go beyond cosmetic. Lexus claims that the IS has greater rigidity and a more concentrated suspension.
Let me start by setting things up for you. Lexus is still selling the fourth-generation RX that was introduced in late 2015 as a 2016 model. I should know since I was there for the media drive when the vehicle reached showrooms. Since then, I had four RXs, including a three-row L model.
