    2 litre is 4 cylinder/ 6 cylinder , 3 litre is 6 cylinder


    from wiki
    The Altezza came in 3 variants:

    The AS200 (Chassis code TA-SXE-10, sedan or TA-GXE-10 FR Gita wagon, TA-GXE-15, 4WD Gita wagon), powered by a 1G-FE inline-6 engine generating 160 PS JIS (118 kW) or 155 PS DIN (114 kW) and mated to a 6-speed manual transmission (5-speed automatic optional)
    The RS200 (Chassis code GH-SXE-10, sedan) powered by a Yamaha tuned 3S-GE inline-4 engine generating 210 PS JIS (154 kW) and mated to a 6-speed transmission (5-speed automatic optional)
    The AS300 (Chassis code TA-JCE-10 FR Gita Wagon,or TA-JCE-15, 4WD Gita wagon) powered by a 2JZ-GE inline-6 engine generating 220 PS JIS (162 kW) or 215 hp SAE (160 kW) and mated to only a 5-speed automatic for the FR Gita Wagon or a 4-speed automatic for the 4WD Gita Wagon. Lexus IS300 share this chasis rather than the SXE-10 chasis.

    The IS200 & IS300 is the previous generation Lexus baby.

    The IS200 comes with a 2L In-line 6 cylinder engine and the IS300 has a 3L V6 engine. Aside from displacement and BHP, the IS300 comes better spec-ed like a NAV system, larger rims for example.

    The Altezza is a Japan Domestic Model of the same Lexus IS200/IS300, it is essentially the same expect that only in Japan is a Lexus marketed as a Toyota. The specs differ alot and so the design (more bodykits, exhuast diff etc) as well. But at the end of the day, the Altezza and the Lexus share the same basic platform and running gear.

    Recently though, the JDM Lexus models have all now been marketed under Lexus. No more will there be a Toyota Harrier (Lexus RX300 in SG) or Toyota Altezza (Lexus IS). They have decided to push Lexus as a strict competitor to the likes of BMW/Mercs worldwide.

    ATM, the IS200 and IS300 has been phased out and replaced with the current new generation IS250. Its available in 2 varients, IS Sport and IS Premium. Running on a 2.5L V6 engine, with the premium having a higher spec of course.

    Yup Yup.. new models IS250 and IS350. 2.5L and 3.5L respectively. Have only seen IS250 around locally. BIg ar*e, but that's my opinion.

    IIRC IS300 is inline 6
    not true. the BMW 735 is already a V8

    the IS250 is sweet to drive. but the space at the back is really shit, and the dash is a bit too overwheming for me
