The 2016 Lexus IS 200t will return up to 33 MPG on the highway, making it the most fuel-efficient non-hybrid Lexus sedan in the lineup.

Full estimates are 22 city, 33 highway and 26 combined, for an average of 2 MPG better that the outgoing IS 250. These are impressive figures considering that the IS 200t has 37 more horsepower and 73 more lb-ft of torque.
