2014 Lexus IS 250 F Sport
Lexus is rolling out a redesigned IS sedan for 2014, with new styling, new safety and infotainment features, and a slightly longer wheelbase. To illustrate the exterior design changes between the old and the new, we fired off some quick-and-dirty snapshots of a 2013 and a 2014 IS 250 F Sport at the 2014 IS press event.

The nose of the 2014 IS gets a more-aggressive look via larger air scoops and the addition of Lexus’ bold “spindle” grille. The checkmark-shaped inserts below the headlights are LED daytime running lights.

The 2014 IS’s bigger, wraparound taillights pick up the swooping curve of the rocker-panel bodyline.

The wider taillights and outward-sloping bodylines give the 2014 IS a wider look.
