The IS 300 was also built in an estate/wagon body form alongside its German counterparts.

Need for Speed: Underground 2Edit

The Lexus IS 300 is available in Need for Speed: Underground 2 upon reaching level 3. The player must complete URL event 5 to unlock the car.

The IS 300 has average performance and handling. Despite it having average performance and handling, it can be easily beaten by other tuned cars. However, it is a decent car to drive during the first portion of the career.

Need for Speed: Most WantedEdit

The Lexus IS 300 is already available at the beginning of Need for Speed: Most Wanted with a price tag of $27,000.

The IS300 has the best handling of all initial career cars although it is still slightly slower than most of its rivals. It can reach a top speed of up to 195 mph (314 kph) with Junkman performance parts.

A modified IS 300 is driven by Blacklist Racer # 14 - Taz. It features a widened body kit and a pronounced flame vinyl colour scheme.

Need for Speed: CarbonEdit

The Lexus IS 300 appears in Need for Speed: Carbon as a Tier 1 Tuner car. It is a reward-card-only unlock. The game features a stock and modified variant of the Lexus IS 300.

It cannot be driven in career mode, but is available in Quick Race mode as well as Multiplayer. It doesn't stand out in terms of performance but it is stable in turns.

It is available in the PS2 release of the title but only in the first Canyon Duel of the Challenge Series.

Need for Speed: WorldEdit

The Lexus IS 300 was made available in Need for Speed: World on August 14th, 2012 as a Tier 1 car. Since August 22nd, 20120, it has been featured as a D class car.

Compared to the Lexus IS 350, it has a worse handling and top speed (127 mph/205 kmh), but compensates these traits with a significantly stronger nitrous boost. It also has a weak acceleration, comparable to that of the Toyota Corolla GT-S and good pursuit durability.
