2020 Lexus IS vs 2020 Toyota Camry TRD

Serving Chicago, IL

The Lexus IS may belong to the category of small sedans, but it makes a big impression. The 2020 Lexus IS exudes luxury from every corner with notable features such as a shark-fin antenna, LED lighting, and elegant design with bold curves and edges. A new trim joins the lineup this year called the Blackline Edition that has an even more innovative exterior design with trim-specific wheels and a distinctive trim with a black and indigo color scheme. The latest IS belongs to the third generation that began in 2013. Although it's had some updates and changes along the way, the Lexus still stands out for an exceptionally smooth ride quality, even on bumpy roads and uneven terrain. No matter where you're driving, the cabin does an excellent job of blocking out ambient noise with its various noise-canceling technologies. Even though the 2020 IS is a luxury sedan, it still offers tremendous value. One of the sedan's competitors is the 2020 Toyota Camry TRD. Also, the TRD is the top-level trim of the Camry family in 2020; the TRD still stands out for its superior interior design, quality, and appearance.


If you're looking for a stylish vehicle to drive in 2020, the Lexus IS is a tough vehicle to beat. This year's Lexus offers a modern appearance with dynamic, dramatic lines shaping its elegant outer shell. Even the base trim comes standard with 18-inch wheels and a sunroof. Seven paint colors provide plenty of choices for a unique finish. The IS is also equipped with triple-beam headlights that are equally striking and functional. Several packages are available for the IS to enhance and customize its appearance at the different trim levels. The 2020 Toyota Camry TRD, in contrast to the IS, has a sportier look that doesn't have the same degree of elegance. You also have to get the top trim of the Camry to get many features that are standard on the IS, including special performance-oriented brakes. While you can enhance the exterior of the IS through packages, you do not have that same option with the Camry TRD.


A variety of options awaits drivers of the 2020 Lexus IS when it comes to performance. At a minimum, you'll get a 2.0L engine with four cylinders. This engine produces 241 HP and 258 LB-FT of torque. Even the base engine is turbo-charged for a sportier driving experience. The second engine is a more powerful 3.5L with six cylinders. This engine creates up to 260 HP and 236 LB-FT of torque. You have the option of either rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive with the Lexus IS. The 2020 Camry TRD, in comparison, gets an engine that produces 203 HP and 184 LB-FT of torque. Front-wheel drive is the only drivetrain available.

Interior Features

Inside, the 2020 IS comes loaded with features. The 2020 Lexus IS has dual-zone climate control, two USB charging ports, an eight-speaker sound system, and Bluetooth at the base level. A 15-speaker sound system, heated and ventilated seats, and more safety features are included on higher-level trims. The Camry TRD only has an available sunroof and a less sophisticated sound system.
