2014 Lexus IS Review and Track Test (IS 250, IS 350 and F-Sport models)

Every car company hates the BMW 3-Series. It's always the benchmark, always the sales champion, always the golden boy. BMW shifted nearly 100,000 3-Series models in America last year and they did so not by being "the best" luxury sedan, but by pandering to the shopping public's desires. Buyers have shown they want a comfy ride with a luxury logo on the front, they want good fuel economy and they want to hear journalists say how well the car handles on a track. The average buyer will never be on a track, but it's critical to know your car belongs there. The old IS was a good car on the track, but its demure looks sold more on Lexus' reliability and dealer reputation than the car's track diaries. As we know from Volvo and Lexus' sales numbers in this segment, two things don't move metal: reliability and safety. For 2014 Lexus went back to the drawing board completely redesigning the IS sedan to be their most dynamic sedan ever. Does it have what it takes to take on the Germans and Infiniti's new Q50? Join us as we head to Austin to look at the all-new 2014 Lexus IS 250, Lexus IS 350, Lexus IS 250 F-Sport and Lexus IS 350 F-Sport. Music by Kevin MacLeod

Competitors: Infiniti Q50, BMW 3 Series, Cadillac ATS, Mercedes C Class, Audi A4 What Camerons Car Reviews has to say about the 2014 IS: For 2014 the every popular Lexus IS gets a full makeover boasting more technology and better fuel economy and exterior design language. The Lexus IS debuted in 2001 and while it had intentions of beating the BMW 3 Series in sales in never really did so. The 2nd generation IS however was 3 times more popular than the 1st generation but it still did not beat sales of the 3 Series. So can this 3rd generation finally reach it's goal after 13 years? Powertrains in the new IS are pretty much the same as the outgoing model a 2.5 L or a powerful 3.5 L V6 are still present, however the new 3.5 L comes with a new 8-Speed Automatic which makes better fuel economy. Room on the interior is roomier than it's every been before, however it still feels cramped even with 4 full size adults the new 2014 Infiniti Q50 and Cadillac ATS will fit the bill if you want more room. On the exterior design Lexus has flared it up a bit, while some can still easily tell it's an IS things are changed from the LED Daytime running lights separating from the main headlights to the sleek taillights and to the new spindle grill design that some love or hate. Everything feels quite familiar on the new IS within the interior with nice supportive and extremely comfortable front seats and to it's mouse like pad that can be a distraction but it's very easy to use. High quality materials are also very evident. There are many packages to choose from on the new IS, however one of the more notable packages will be the F Sport Package which will add even more flare to the exterior design. Driving dynamics on the IS are not bad, however the 3 Series and ATS will be the one if you want better driving dynamics. Pricing on the new IS starts at around $35,000 and can run you to almost $50,000 depending on options you choose from. Now compared to it's competitors the new IS is definitely an improvement over the outgoing model and we really praise it for it's ultra luxurious interior and a flaring design as well as the powerful 3.5 L V6. We also really love the improved fuel economy numbers and more technological features. So is the new IS competitive? Yes it is, most IS buyers are looking for a luxurious interior with a nice amount of technology as well as decent driving dynamics.

協調的內在Lexus IS250
Hybrid也許是現在甚至未來十年的趨勢,將來會接觸這類動 力系統的消費者會愈來愈多,很多人會說,(開車)不就 是代步而已,省油才是王道;這個觀念讓IS 300h成為改款後IS車系的銷售主力,不過別忘了IS250 V6與後驅的機械搭配,它讓你有很不一樣的駕馭感受。 撇開後驅不談,因為當今的後驅車已經沒有特性了,如果 還保有那種前輪轉向後輪動力輸出的特性,開的人會愈來 愈少!不過V6的魅力還是很迷人,尤其是右腳踩踏油門的 時,它的動力線性是四缸所無法比擬的。 上次的F-Sport以及此次的標準版外觀,消費者可以進行比 ,就我認為少了F-Sport反而讓改款後的IS更耐看。

2013 Lexus GS 350 F Sport vs Mercedes-Benz E350 vs BMW 535i race track review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The new 2013 Lexus GS 350 F is taking direct aim at both the new Mercedes-Benz E350 and the new BMW 535i. We recently had a chance to drive all three cars on the race track in Las Vegas to compare how well the newest and perhaps sexiest Lexus does against these two very well regarded and long established German luxury performance sedans. Check out this first drive review of the 2013 Lexus GS 350 F as we test all three cars head to head.





Can the 2014 Lexus IS350 F Sport catch BMW?
The Smoking Tire gets a crack at a pre-production example of the all-new 2014 Lexus IS350 F-Sport. It's got an aggressive new look and an interior to match, but how does it drive on Southern California's most technically challenging road? We find out.





2014 BMW 320i Test Drive & Entry-Level Luxury Car Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/bmw/320/2014/ More and more luxury car companies are broaden their model line-up in an effort to grab a piece of the entry-level segment. Last year BMW released the most inexpensive sedan: the 320i. The competition is tough though with the Cadillac ATS, Mercedes CLA, Lexus IS 250, and the Infiniti Q50. The 2014 BMW 320i has a base price of $32,550. The 3-Series is one of the most important cars in the BMW line-up as it's the volume seller. The 3-Series is the lynch-pin of the line-up and the 2014 320i is the affordable entry-level model. Looking at this car you would not be able to tell that the 320i is the least expensive of the bunch. Up front this car sports the big kidney grilles and the sharp-cut headlamps. Under the hood lives a very nice power plant that combines technology and fuel economy into a good base engine. The engine is a 2.0 liter 4-cylinder TwinPower turbocharged unit that makes 180 horsepower and 200 lb-ft. of torque. This car is tuned more for fuel economy rather than power and the results speak for themselves with the 2014 BMW 320i netting 24 MPG in the city and 36 MPG on the highway. So just where did BMW save the money considering the 328i cost $5k more? On the inside the 320i feels slightly downgraded from the rest of the models. The BMW looks are still there is seems like the material is not as high-end. See More Car Videos http://www.autobytel.com/car-videos/ Join Our Facebook Page http://www.facebook.com/autobytel

For the latest Lexus IS pricing, reviews and vehicle information: http://www.kbb.com/lexus/is/2014-lexus-is/ Caution has a place but the compact luxury segment isn't it.

2014 Lexus IS Review
Lexus says the 2013 GS introduced its new family styling, dubbed L-finesse. While its characteristic spindle-shaped grille already has been applied to the company's full lineup, the IS is only the second car to be drawn from nose to tail in the new design language. In the IS, L-finesse hits its stride. The gaping grille, squinty lighting elements, strong shoulder lines, flowing greenhouse shapes, and burly fender bulges make the car look like a bona fide sports sedan.





The Ultimate Lexus IS Drag Race: 2014 Lexus IS350 vs IS250 vs F Sport AWD Mashup
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The all new 2014 Lexus IS250 and IS350 are very sport 4-door sedans that compete directly against the BMW 3-Series. Both the 2014 Lexus IS250 and IS350 feature 6 cylinder engines that love to rev. The IS250 has less power than the IS350 but it also weights less. The sharpest of the Lexus IS family is the F Sport. In another accurate, fun and informative TFLcar video review, Nathan, Andre and Roman have some fun with three new but different AWD Lexus IS sedan in the Ultimate Lexus IS Drag Race.
