With this standard configuration of the IS, the Lexus IS speed tops out at a zippy 143 miles per hour with a 0-60 time of 6.9 seconds. If you pick the AWD version of the IS 300, you’ll downgrade your top speed to 130 mph but accelerate faster, going from 0-60 in only 6.1 seconds.

What Can You Move Up To?

If you’re a driver who wants the premier level of performance in the 2021 Lexus IS pack, consider the IS 350.
