Editor's Overview

Though it has a tendency to fly under the radar, the Lexus IS sport sedan boasts plenty of refinement, attractive packaging, and a range of engine choices. Owners will also appreciate this sedan's strong residual values and reliability record long after signing on the dotted line.

Sporty look and race car pick up - be careful hitting the gas because you can be going much faster than you think

Like the look and feel of the car. However it is really low to the ground and therefore hard to get in and out of the back seat.
