What a Rush!

by Sports Car Enthusiast from Atlanta, GA on Thu Nov 08 2012

I just purchased the 2012 BLK \ BLK F-Sport package with NAV and this thing will fly! I traded my IS250 for it (was looking for an IS-F) Thus far the fastest car I've ever owned. You can not go wrong with this car. Look at it like this you have what all the others in this class have but none of the others have the Reliability that Lexus is known for. If not, throw your money away on service and leasing those europeans types.

Head Turner

Very good looking inside and out. Receive many compliments on the car despite there being newer model available. Admittedly, I have a heavy right foot, however, I still would have expected more then the 20 mpg combined that I get on average.

Our Take on the 2012 Lexus IS 350

Editor's note: This review was written in July 2011 about the 2011 Lexus IS 350. Little of substance has changed with this year's model. To see what's new for 2012, click here, or check out a side-by-side comparison of the two model years.

For more than 10 years, Lexus has presented luxury shoppers an unlikely offering in the IS, a rear-wheel-drive sport sedan from a brand best known for cushy comfort. The gamble worked: The IS drives better than most of its Lexus siblings. It does not, however, get there without a penalty.

While the Lexus IS sedan performs well, it makes drivers give up ride comfort and roominess in ways that its competitors don't.
