Excellent Value

by arsen_mezh from San Francisco, CA on Fri Apr 28 2017

The car itself is great, MGP is good for V6, very comfortable, looks good inside and out, and very reliable. The only downside to this car is the interior lack of space for the driver. Everything seems a little bit crammed, but with that said there's a lot of technology and driver safety features that make it really enjoyable to drive. Overall great value for the money.

07 is 350

by gto from az on Tue Sep 19 2017

17 IS 350 was boring compared to previous body style. Consumer Report agrees with me. Drove like a bigger car and did not have the sporty handling like my 2017 IS 350.

Our Take on the 2017 Lexus IS 350

The verdict:

A weak drivetrain and frustrating controls were two big reasons the 2017 Lexus IS 200t finished last in our recent test of luxury sports sedans, but stepping up to the V-6-powered IS 350 doesn't completely solve the problem.

Versus the competition:

While the IS looks the part of a luxury sports sedan thanks to aggressive exterior bodywork, its driving experience comes up short in a class that now, more than ever, is filled with fun-to-drive cars.

The IS sedan comes in three flavors, each with a different drivetrain. The base IS 200t is powered by a 241-horsepower, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, while the mid-level IS 300 gets a 255-hp, 3.5-liter V6 and the top IS 350 uses a 306-hp, 3.5-liter V-6. The IS 200t and IS 350 have standard rear-wheel drive and eight-speed automatic transmissions. All-wheel drive (AWD) is standard on the IS 300 and optional on the IS 350; if you choose AWD, the eight-speed transmission is replaced with a six-speed automatic. Compare these cars' specs here.

We drove an IS 200t with an as-tested price of $47,523 (including a $975 destination charge) and a rear-wheel-drive IS 350 with an as-tested... Read More
