If you’re looking for a luxury sedan, but want something with dynamically out-there styling to back up its driving characteristics, you can’t do better than the 2015 Lexus IS sedan. Yeah, we just said a Lexus is the most visually striking sedan in its class. How times change.
The IS250 has the perfect driving position. The seats are ideally contoured such that an hour of driving is a reasonable stand-in for the chiropractic session your health insurance no longer covers. The 2015 Lexus IS 250 is as quick as their competition in a straight line, and when the road bends, the suspension is ready for action. This is a genuinely fun car to drive, one that’s the equal of the sporty Cadillac ATS and BMW 3 Series. However, the suspension remains supple over bumps, and the superb front seats and quiet interior remind you that you’re driving a Lexus.
Good visibility and easy maneuverability make short work of U-turns and parking lots. In terms of power, the 2.5-liter V6 engines offer plenty of thrust for passing and merging.
The 2015 Lexus IS dash design and the conventional and touch-sensitive switches are all easy to find and use. We particularly like the mouse-like controller used for the infotainment system, which is immediately familiar to anybody who’s used a computer. Front passengers are comfortable, and rear legroom is acceptable, if not class leading. We dig the Lexus LFA supercar-inspired gauges in F Sport models, which use a digital instrument cluster and a cool sliding bezel.
The navigation system on the Lexus IS sedan is among the best available. Crafty car shoppers who seek fundamental vehicle enhancements like LED headlights and heated/ventilated front seats should opt for the Premium package.
All-Weather-Drive: Fun doesn’t take the day off for bad weather. By automatically allocating engine power between the front and rear axles from 50/50 to as much as 30/70, available all-wheel drive can provide enhanced traction and control on a wide range of road surfaces and conditions.
Sporting a long, wide stance accentuated by flared wheel arches, sculpted lines and dramatic sweeping taillamps, the IS leaves more than an impression. With arresting details like inset LED daytime running lamps and a full-face mesh grille on the IS FSPORT, it refuses to go unnoticed.
