Car Profiles – Lexus IS

LEXUS IS

This IS brought tons of improvements which its predecessor faced, including the very cramped interior. There’s high quality interior materials and precise handling but the thrill is still the forte of the Germans. F Sport trim is made available to shake things up.

The Good: Powerful engine
The Bad: Steering isn’t to German levels
