Alyc Keith here, with another edition of Car of the Week. I hope you had a wonderful weekend, the NFL football is back, and The Smashing Pumpkins were in town this weekend, it was an amazing concert, hopefully you had a chance to take it in. And we had 5,000 views last week, so thanks for tuning in. Our car of the week this week is an IS 300, it’s a 2016. I get asked a lot of questions about the history on this car, we don’t have to look too far, it’s right here, let’s take a closer look.

Our car of the week this week is a 2016 Lexus IS 300. When the IS first came out, generation one it was branded as the IS 300. And when generation two came out the IS 300 disappeared, it was branded as a 250. The IS 250 produced only 204 horsepower, that was a 2.5 liter engine. In 2016 they changed it back to an IS 300. Let’s take a look under the hood and talk about the specs. The 2016 Lexus IS 300 has a 3.5 liter V6 that produces 255 horsepower with 236 pounds of torque. That is 50 horsepower more than the previous IS 250. Let’s take a look inside the cabin. The actual odometer on the car of the week is 43,980. This is an F Sport Series 2. This car retailed for $51,000 back in 2016. Some of the features are, the navigation system, the backup camera, heated steering wheel, the blind spot monitors, and the rear cross-traffic alert. The other thing we talk about is the CarProof. This is an accident free car, it’s been serviced here. It’s atomic silver on rioja red, one of my favorite color combinations.

Now before you go, I’m gonna give away two tickets to The Calgary International Film Festival. All you have to do is comment below on your favorite Canadian actor, and we’ll draw one name at the end of the week. Thanks so much for tuning in, I’ll see you next week.
