Lexus IS review - CarBuyer
Full review: http://www.carbuyer.co.uk/reviews/lexus/is/saloon/review
The current Lexus IS is renowned for its reliability and build quality. And while there's much to admire, it falls short of its German rivals in a number of ways. For a start there are only three engines: one diesel and a pair of thirsty petrol units. It's quite cramped in the cabin and the interior design lacks sparkle. However, owners constantly rave about its comfort and Lexus' dealer service. The high-performance IS F is a high-revving alternative to the BMW M3.
NEW!!! 2014 LEXUS IS LIVE AT DETROIT AUTOSHOW
Lexus is evidently dead serious about removing some of the starch from its collar, as evidenced by the boldly styled new IS sedan just unveiled here at the Detroit Auto Show. We didn't know what to make of Lexus' entry-level sport sedan when we first saw images of it earlier this week. Dominated by the gaping maw of a spindle grille and flanked by headlamps with Nike swoosh daytime running lamps, the photos showed a distinctive (if not completely cohesive) design. Having now seen the design in the metal, we have to admit it comes together better than it does on screen.
The new model will feature both rear- and all-wheel drive models in both 2.5-liter V6 (IS250) and 3.5-liter V6 (IS350) trims. Lexus also showed an IS300h hybrid model at the reveal, but it is earmarked for Lexus' home market of Japan, along with Europe and other markets. No word yet on why the model probably won't be sold here in North America, but our AutoblogGreen compatriots are looking into it.
Aside from its bold new look front and rear, the IS carries forward a lot of the ideas seen in other newer Lexus models, namely the GS. Hidden beneath the IS' sheetmetal is the multilink rear suspension from the GS, along with its electric power steering setup. The new IS rides atop a three-inch longer wheelbase for better rear seat room, but during our brief time sitting in the car at the press conference melee, it still didn't feel terribly roomy (it rarely does in this class). At least the seatbacks fold 60/40 for the first time for additional utility.
Executives promise that the Fuji Speedway- and Nürburgring-tuned IS350 will make in excess of 300 horsepower. More detailed specifications have yet to be released, but performance figures to be formidable, especially now that the IS receives the eight-speed automatic borrowed from the existing IS F, complete with full torque converter lockup for crisp shifts and manual mode throttle blipping. In addition, F Sport models like the white showcar above includes recalibrated suspension and electric power steering settings to go along with their more aggressive visuals and interior trimmings.
The IS is scheduled to hit dealers in June, at which point you can all make up your minds about Lexus' new styling direction.
Lexus IS 250 2014 DRIVE
In the wake of the newly overhauled GS 350, we expected similar leaps forward of athleticism from the 2014 Lexus IS sport sedan. Instead, it appears that Lexus has a different idea in mind, making the redesigned 2014 model more luxurious and comfortable.
The new IS rides on a longer wheelbase than before. Lexus hasn't said exactly how much longer, but given the larger rear seat area we've observed, we'll say at least 1.5 inches. That's commendable and welcome in the notoriously cramped IS, but still only about halfway to closing the gap between the current IS's rear legroom and that of competitors like the Audi A4 and BMW 3 Series.
The new 2014 Lexus IS 250 carries over its 204-horsepower 2.5-liter V6 and six-speed automatic transmission, but now features a stiffer body structure and a retuned suspension that helps make the IS feel more stable on the freeway. A revised rear suspension design taken from the new GS sedan also opens up some trunk space. In our initial testing of a prototype IS, however, we found the new car's handling around corners to be less dynamic and sharp than it was before.
On the plus side, the new IS benefits from revised front seats that are meant to be more comfortable than before. An improved interior with Lexus' latest electronics should also be part of the redesign.
The 2014 Lexus IS 250 sport sedan goes on sale this summer. Check back for a full review, including specs, driving impressions and buying advice, as it becomes available.

*Cameron's Top Recommended Luxury Crossover SUV *
What I have to about the 2013 RX: The RX 350 has been refreshed for 2013 and has many updates. Things like the new spindle grill design comes into play with this RX and it's looks very stylish in my opinion. Also, the steering wheel has been reworked to give it a more luxurious feel. Another new important update is that the RX can now be the RX F Sport which a features a 8-Speed Automatic and AWD and a very sporty exterior. Also The RX is a very quiet and luxurious crossover SUV. It's main rival is the Cadillac SRX.
Trims: Base, F Sport, Hybrid
Competitors: Cadillac SRX, Infiniti FX, BMW X3, Mercedes ML, Audi Q5
