The new 2015 Lexus IS will be interlocked in the highly competitive sedan segment where automakers gain foothold through brand image. In the pursuit of prosperity in this segment, the IS comes with fresh contours that infuse a bold and purposeful outlook. To meet the needs of purists who seek a sharp driving experience, shoppers can go for the IS 350 F Sport that spews out 306 ponies alongside a sport-refined suspension. On the other hand, the base models are equally luring to buyers with a 2.5-Liter six-cylinder, elegance and value. Though it only received only a few touches to its details, it will surpass rivals with a stylish interior, upscale cabin, loads of standard and optional equipment, strong acceleration and occupant-friendly.   

The IS 250 model is run by a 2.5-Liter six-cylinder that gives 204 horsepower and 185 pound-feet of twist. Fuel economy, in line with the EPA, is 21 mpg in the city/30 mpg hwy with RWD. Conversely, the AWD checks in at 20 mpg city/27 mpg highway. The IS 350 version top-ranges with the 3.5-Liter ix cylinder that serves up 306 ponies and 277 pound-feet of torque, it’s fuel economy stands at 19 mpg city/ 28 mpg highway with RWD and 19 mpg city alongside 26 mpg with AWD. RWD sedans boast an eight-speed automated transmission, while AWD ones are equipped with a conventional 6-speed automated.    

The Lexus IS trim level breakdown has twin levels, including the IS 250 as well as the IS 350 while AWD is optional on both sedans exclusively. The IS 250 and the IS 350 sedans come with similar standard equipment, 17” alloy wheels, LED running-lights, synthetic leatherette padding, automated climate control, 8” middle infotainment screen with Bluetooth connectivity, real-time traffic/weather, paddle shifters, a color 4.2” TFT driver’s information display and xenon headlamps. The IS 350 sedan comes with a bigger V6 mill, with tons of options for the two trim levels including Premium, Luxury packages and cockpit paraphernalia.

For safety of occupants, the Lexus IS comes with standard equipment like stability system control, four-wheel antilock disc brakes and multiple airbags on strategic angles. The adaptive cruise control boasts a crash-pre-emptive system that detects impeding front impacts and brakes are applicable if warranted.

From an expert stance, behind the wheel, the IS sedan’s frontal standard seats are distinctly finely-reinforced and cozy as the stretched wheelbase render the rear seats copious room. Materials and artistic designs embraced lean towards a Germanic detail trend with class-apt materials. Beneath the hood, the base-level 2.5-Liter six-cylinder offers joyous acceleration. Additionally, swinging it for the 3.5-liter six-cylinder IS 350 model generates authoritative acceleration for all speed limits.

On the highways, the IS 350 may not give the dynamic features present in close rivals like the MBW 355i, but it fulfills the needs of a shopper who is seeking a practical car. The IS blends refinement that echoes the Mercedes C-Class portfolio and driving capacity that identifies with the 3-Series. It is a spectacular conflation of handy handling and fine ride quality, with a sport-footed feel on the driver’s throne that boosts your experience further.
