Called Toyota Altezza in Japan, the 1st generation Lexus IS was released in 1999 as a premium sporty family sedan. It was joined in 2001 by the SportCross station wagon.
The IS, with its elegant and edgy design, was characterized by its clear-covered taillights that inspired the famous aftermarket "Lexus lights". The instrumentation of the instrument panel in a chronograph watch style was also distinctive.
Unlike the Japanese versions which could receive a 4-cylinder engine, the Lexus in Europe only had 6-cylinder ones: a 2L of 155 hp on the IS 200 and 3L of 213 hp on the IS 300. Power was transmitted to the rear wheels (4-wheel drive option exclusively in Japan).
ISs could benefit from various equipment options in some markets, such as the Luxury Pack (heated seats, GPS, etc.) and the Sport Pack (Torsen differential, sport suspensions, etc.).

Note that TTE (Toyota Team Europe) produced a compressor kit (featuring an Eaton supercharger) for the IS 200 to increase the power of the 6-cylinder 2L VVT-i to 205 hp. In some markets, this kit could even be installed by Lexus dealerships at the request of customers on brand new vehicles as an OEM accessory without any loss of the manufacturer's warranty.
