The new IS design is more aggressive, with a wider and lower body, plus sophisticated safety technology, including a developed version of the Lexus Safety System +. The front has a large grille much like the company sports car that, combined with silver accents and more aggressive headlights, gives the car a bolder touch.

The rear of the Lexus IS 2021 also changes with thinner, more aggressive rear lights that connect from one side to the other to offer a full line of rear light.
