Generalized Ito systems of four coupled nonlinear evaluation equations are proposed. New classes of exact invariant solutions by using Lie group analysis are obtained. Moreover, we investigate the existence of a one-parameter group of contact transformations for a generalized Ito system. Consequently, we study the relationship between one-parameter group of a contact transformation and a one-parameter Lie point transformation for a generalized Ito system.
