The compact 4-door Lexus IS 250 sport sedan goes through some minor updates in 2009, featuring interior and exterior styling modifications, an enhanced stability control system and upgraded suspension tuning. Lexus IS 250 standard features include a 2.5L V6 engine that generates 204 hp and 185 lb-ft of torque. Rear-wheel drive is standard, while AWD is available as an option. Transmission choices are a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic that is mandatory on the AWD. EPA fuel-economy estimates stand at 21 mpg city/29 hwy and 24 combined for rear-wheel-drive models with the automatic transmission, while the manual transmission reduces those numbers substantially to 18 mpg city/26 hwy and 21 combined. When equipped with AWD, the IS 250 gets 20 mpg city/26 hwy and 22 combined. While not the sportiest car on the block, the Lexus IS 250 is a terrific entry-level luxury sport sedan built with high-quality materials, capable handling, good fuel economy and seating for up to five passengers.
The 2009 Lexus IS 250 and IS 350 sport sedans bring the driving feel of a sports coupe, in a more practical four-door sedan body style, and have some available high-tech features that aren't offered by their head-on competitors.
The Lexus IS sedan carries over to 2009 with a minor facelift, which includes a restyling of the front and rear bumpers, the grille, and the side mirrors, now with incorporated turn signals. New 17- and 18-inch alloy wheels cap off the exterior changes, while inside, the center instrument cluster has been updated and the rear seat headrests are foldable. Mechanically, the IS's suspension has been retuned to deliver a more athletic ride.
The Lexus IS comes in two primary models for 2009. The IS 250 has a 204-horsepower, 2.5L V6 engine, and the IS 350 comes with a 306-horsepower, 3.5L V6. Both engines have aluminum construction and variable valve timing for intake and exhaust, along with direct injection. While those models are rear-wheel drive, there's also an IS 250 AWD model, which adds all-wheel drive.
