Is the Lexus IS 250 AWD?
I found a great deal on a used Lexus IS 250. However, the online ad doesn’t say whether it has two-wheel drive or all-wheel drive (AWD). Does the Lexus IS 250 have all-wheel drive?
Answer provided by
A luxury sedan that has been manufactured since 2015, the Lexus IS 250 offers AWD as an available option.
Originally, the upgrade from rear-wheel drive (RWD) to all-wheel drive was roughly $2,400 to $2,700 depending on the model year. On a used Lexus IS 250, this upgraded drivetrain costs about 10% more than the regular rear-wheel drive.
Aside from improved handling, the only major difference between AWD compared to RWD is fuel economy. The Lexus IS 250 AWD provides 27 mpg on the highway and 20 mpg in the city while the RWD boasts 30 mpg on the highway and 21 mpg in the city.
Either drivetrain is paired with a 204-horsepower, 2.5-liter turbo V6 and an eight-speed automatic transmission.
