    2002 Lexus IS 300 Base w/5-Speed Manual 4dr Sedan Overview

    When the Lexus IS 300 sedan was introduced as a 2001 model, it became the first real sports sedan in the Lexus fleet.Targeted toward a younger audience, this sporty car with slick skin and high-tech appointments carries the Lexus badge that's normally associated with a luxurious ride, but it behaves like a road-hugging German touring car.With rear-wheel drive, best-in-class horsepower, and five-speed automatic with manual shifting, it offers a compelling alternative to the benchmark BMW 3 Series.

    For 2002, the IS 300 SportCross has been added to the line.It's a five-door hatchback, intended for that same young audience but broadening to include jocks in addition to well-heeled geeks and gearheads.Lexus says the SportCross appeals to a 'much younger' crowd, and the company jumps through hoops to avoid the words 'five-door' or 'hatchback' because those words suggest entry level.So the SportCross is officially a 4+1-door.Fortunately, the car isn't as awkward as its tag.In fact, it is anything but awkward.

    The IS 300 uses Lexus's sophisticated, 3.0-liter, inline six-cylinder engine, renowned for its smoothness.It produces 215 horsepower on recommended 91-octane fuel.Like the IS 300 sedan, the SportCross uses a five-speed manual automatic transmission with racy shifting via buttons on the steering wheel in the manual mode.

    Also new for 2002, is a five-speed manual gearbox for the sedan.
