The IS, a mainstay of Lexus's lineup since 2001, is a large sedan/wagon with seating up to 5. Having better than average EPA (miles per gallon) for its class, it reduces fuel costs and pollution. With optional all-wheel drive (AWD), it can easily handle mud, snow, and sand. Lexus offers a 4-year, 50,000-mile basic warranty, and a 6-year, 70,000-mile powertrain warranty on its lineup.
We estimate that the 2015 Lexus IS has a vehicle lifetime fatality chance of 0.0448% and a vehicle lifetime injury chance of 5.1207%, meaning the average driver has a 0.0448% chance of dying in an accident if they drive the car under regular conditions for fifteen years, and a 5.1207% chance of being injured.
Compared to the average vehicle, the 2015 Lexus IS is 5% less likely to result in a fatal accident. Compared to other sedans, hatchbacks, and wagons, the 2015 Lexus IS is 12% less likely to result in a fatal accident.
2015 Lexus IS offers AEB optionally. With AEB, the vehicle lifetime fatality chance drops by 4%.
And it is about as safe as many comparable models.
