Editor's Overview

The completely redesigned 2014 IS sedan represents one of the most ambitious styling exercises in Lexus history. While the current 2.5-liter and 3.5-liter V6 engines carry over into the new model, the 3rd-generation IS brings new levels of refinement, technology and, in usual Lexus fashion, value. A convertible and the high-performance IS F, carried over from 2013, add diversity to the lineup.

Awesome car! I would recommend to everyone.

1. Problems: I haven't had any problems with it yet. 2. Performance: even when speeding, you cannot feel it. 3. Reliability: I hear you can drive a Lexus well past 200, 000 miles. 4. Comfort & features: the car is very comfortable. The leather seats is very soft and nice. The options on the car make it a very comfortable ride.

- Ann Y

2014 Lexus is 250 rear wheel drive.

My car has been extremely reliable. She's hit over 110, 000 miles within 5 years of having the vehicle. Lexus has been extremely reliable and worth the cost. Super comfortable and even the f sport version is super comfortable. I have navigation and lots of other nice features. Everyone in my family has Lexus and will not change.

Revamped classic is for younger customers (or older too!).

Love this car. Entry level but amazing bucket seats and quality Lexus performance. Only complaints are about the entertainment GPS console thing. Voice recognition technology should be much better than what it is. It should work similarly to Alexa or Siri, but it does not. Far worse. Excellent car though!
