The 2014 IS F-Sport was unveiled at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show. It is based on the new-generation IS sedan, but it adds the usual F-Sport styling kit that includes a special grille and front bumper design, an enhanced three-dimensional mesh grille, larger cooling openings, a black grille surround and, of course, an exclusive set of wheels.
Under the hood, the model gets a 2.5-liter V-6 gas engine for the IS 250 and a 3.5-liter V-6 gas engine for the IS 350 that produce 204 horsepower and 306 horsepower, respectively.
