  • The 2002 Lexus IS300 offers sedan and wagon body styles. The sedan comes in base and E-Shift trims, while the wagon is known as the SportCross trim. All models offer 17-inch alloy wheels, heated door mirrors, power door mirrors, fog lights, intermittent wipers, and four-wheel independent suspension. The SportCross adds a spoiler and rear wiper.

    The 2002 Lexus IS300 is comfortable and well-appointed no matter what trim is chosen. All the basics are here and options include a navigation system, leather upholstery, heated front seats, power front seats, and power moonroof.

  • The 2002 Lexus IS300 improves to handle the ultra-competitive entry-level luxury class. Changes include the option for a five-speed manual transmission, and it comes packaged with a sportier suspension than what is offered on the base model. A navigation system and an all-leather interior are optional this year, and the rearview and driver-side mirrors are auto-dimming. There are new head-protecting side curtain airbags to go with the regular side airbags, a BrakeAssist function, and a stability control system to improve safety. A wagon joins the line-up to give choices to those who may be sick of SUVs.

    The 2002 Lexus IS300 uses a DOHC, 3.0-liter, six-cylinder engine that is quite similar to the power plant in the GS300. It employs variable valve timing and produces 215 horsepower at 5800 rpm and 218 lb-ft of torque at 3800 rpm. For gearbox choices, there is the five-speed automatic with E-Shift sequential shift mode or a five-speed manual equipped model that also features slightly firmer suspension tuning than the automatic model. All IS300 models are rear-drive. Acceleration is solid as any IS300 regardless of gearbox or options does the zero-to-60-mph sprint in a class competitive 7.3 seconds. It should have enough power to handle traffic situations well.

    The 2002 Lexus IS300's handling is good, and it is somewhat agile but not like the German rivals, as the steering and balance lack the precision of the vaunted European-built sport sedans. Braking is accomplished in a shorter than average distance with good stability. The ride quality is on the sporty side and not as soft or plush as some other Lexus models. It is always stable and handles big bumps well enough, but has firmness and occasional thumping as a trade-off for the sporty tuning. As far as noise goes, the sedan and wagon are equal, but neither is as quiet as buyers are used to from a Lexus. This is one of the few models made by this luxury producer that doesn’t lead its class in cabin serenity.
