Editor's Overview

In the compact-luxury-sedan market, excellence is the minimum standard, yet the 2017 Lexus IS continues to stand out. It's not just the eye-catching styling, although that certainly helps. It's because Lexus layers in impressive technology, a comfortable and impeccably detailed interior, quality beyond compare, and an unmatched reputation for owner satisfaction.

Great sporty sedan for and young adult! Highly recommend.

Space inside is on the smaller side and I do wish it got better gas mileage. It only takes premium + which is the more expensive. But other than that I do love thecae. It can be placed in normal, eco and sport mode. The leather is real and I have cooling seats which comes in handy as its black leather in local.

Lexus is 200t: luxuriously affordable.

I am a more petite person, and the size of the Lexus is 200t fits me perfectly. The seat is so comfortable and feels like it perfectly contours to my body. The car rides so smoothly, with excellent acceleration and control. The features in the car are excellent and the look of it is luxurious.

- Andrea S

Love it my Lexus f sport.

I've had no problems since I purchased my vehicle. Car has been great so far. Only had it for a year. Very comfortable and spacious. Love the features it has. Will definitely recommend it to family or single person. I have the f sport and the performance is better that my old one.
