Rear-wheel drive IS 200t promises no turbo-lag
Lexus has officially revealed the 2015 IS 200t.
Aesthetically, the vehicle looks similar with the facelifted 2015 IS that was first previewed last year. However, this Lexus IS 200t features something new under the hood.
The 2015 IS 200t is equipped with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that delivers 245 PS and 350 Nm of torque.
Lexus says the 2.0-liter turbocharged engine offers “superior smoothness and responsiveness, with no turbo-lag.”
Power will be sent to the rear wheels through an eight-speed 'Sport Direct Shift' transmission. Lexus claims that it can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 7 seconds before hitting a top speed of 230 km/h.
