Benefits of Driving a 2011 Lexus IS Models Sedan

The Lexus IS family now includes something for most compact luxury coupe, convertible or sedan shoppers--with offerings ranging from conservative all-weather all-wheel drive sedans to sunny convertibles and serious track-duty sport sedans. The IS sedans ride and handle well and offer some of the tech options of larger luxury models, while the IS C models have excellent packaging with a tight-fitting, quick-folding automatic hardtop that stows away without taking up the entire trunk. While Lexus makes an ES 350 model that's roomier and more comfortable-riding, the IS is considerably sportier in every way.

What's new for 2011?

Following the introduction of all-new IS 250C and IS 350C retractable-hardtop convertible models last year, the IS sedans receive a bit more attention this year. For 2011, the Lexus IS sedan lineup especially takes a step toward a sportier image and more performance potential. A new IS 350 AWD (all-wheel drive) model is added to the IS sedan lineup. There's also a new F Sport Package available on rear-wheel-drive IS 250 and IS 350 models, which adds some of the appearance upgrades, as well as a sport suspension and sportier steering tuning. A special new Ultrasonic Blue color is available with the package.

Model Review

The Lexus IS remains offered in two different body styles, both available in IS 250 or IS 350 guise. IS 250 models come with a 204-horsepower, 2.5-liter V6 engine while IS 350 models get a 306-hp, 3.5-liter V6. Both engines come with variable valve timing for responsiveness as well as fuel efficiency--the IS 250 is quite economical with EPA ratings of up to 21 mpg city and 29 highway. While the IS 250 comes standard with a 6-speed manual transmission, with a 6-speed automatic (and steering-wheel paddle-shifters) optional, all IS 350 models come with the automatic.
