Largely unchanged from last year, the four-door, four-passenger 2009 Lexus IS-F sedan gets new front and rear fascias, wheel designs, turn-signal side mirrors and paint colors, updated center console, gauge cluster and folding rear headrests. Powered by a 5.0L V8 engine charging 416 hp and 371 lb-ft of torque paired to an eight-speed automatic with a paddle-shift manual mode, the Lexus IS-F performance boasts 0-60 mph in 4.8 seconds. EPA fuel economy ranges are 16 mpg city/23 mpg hwy and 18 mpg in combined driving. The IS-F comes equipped with wide array of safety features, including antilock brakes with brake assist, stability and traction control, front-seat side airbags, knee airbags and full-length side curtain airbags. As an option, a pre-collision system works with the adaptive radar cruise control to sense an impending impact and then automatically adjusts seatbelt tension and braking force. Interior sound insulation and ergonomically designed controls contribute to the IS-F driving experience.
