The 2014 Lexus IS 250 and 350 models were launched a little over a year ago, and ever since then they’ve made history with records sales. Lexus went with an edgy exterior design, making the IS very sporty, and stuck with V6 engines for both models. The Lexus IS was then tested against the BMW in its segment. The results were startling to most: on and off the track, the Lexus was the better driver’s car, according to Torque News. Then, Car and Driver tested the IS versus the BMW and the rest in the class of sports sedans (think Audi, Mercedes, Infiniti), and they picked the Lexus, too. Road and Track was up next; they also picked the Lexus IS as best in its class overall.
All of the most reputable car review outlets dutifully reported their findings, and as news spread, Lexus had quite a year – this wasn’t supposed to happen for an American car up against European superiors, but it did. To get even more exhilaration out of your Lexus IS sports sedan, opt for the F SPORT Performance package.
