2019 Lexus Is 350 Awd Drivers' Notes Review | Trouble In Tech Town

2019 Lexus IS 350 AWD Drivers' Notes Review | Trouble in tech town

The third-gen Lexus IS has been on sale since 2013 and has benefited from few updates in the meantime. Our tester was an Atomic Silver IS 350 with all-wheel drive, the most expensive model in the lineup. A base IS 300 (formerly known as the 200t) starts at just under $40,000, though our well-equipped tester toped out at $50,780. Rather than the 300's 2.0-liter turbocharged V6, the IS 350 uses Toyota's tried-and-true 3.5-liter V8 churning out 311 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque. That's less than models like the BMW 340i and Mercedes-AMG C43, but still a good amount of grunt.

Options on this car include the $2,365 F Sport package. Changes include accents on the front and rear bumpers, F Sport 5-spoke 18-inch wheels, a digital instrument cluster, perforated leather on the steering wheel, and a few F Sport logos sprinkled throughout. Other options include adaptive lighting for $300, upgraded audio and infotainment system for $2,845, and a heated steering wheel for $150.

News' Members Koyama Keiichiro And Kato Shigeaki In Trouble For Drinking With A Minor

NEWS' members Koyama Keiichiro and Kato Shigeaki in trouble for drinking with a minor

The other day, some tabloid magazines reported that NEWS members Koyama Keiichiro and Kato Shigeaki were drinking with a minor. As a result, Koyama's activities have been suspended temporarily, and Kato has been given a stern warning. 

On June 7, Koyama explained the situation on NTV's 'news every.' in which he serves as a newscaster. "She told me that she was twenty years old, so I had no idea she was a minor," he said. "Consequently, I participated in a drinking party with a minor and said things that enticed her to drink. I needn't say this, but this behavior is inappropriate as a newscaster on a news program. I am terribly sorry." He continued, "As such, I will be taking a break from 'news every.' for the time being. During this time, my activities have been suspended, and I will use this time to take another good look at myself."

Honda is starting over with the Red Bull-owned team this season after three seasons of failure with former champions McLaren left the Japanese engine manufacturer's reputation in tatters. A behind-the-scenes documentary, "Grand Prix Driver," released on Amazon recently shone a spotlight on the tension between McLaren and Honda that eventually led to the relationship tearing apart. It also revealed how the troubles had started before the launch of the car and were fully exposed once testing in Barcelona started when the car broke down repeatedly due to engine failures.
