2011 Lexus IS250

2011 Lexus IS250 Review

(4 Stars)  Good balance of luxury and performance

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

The IS 250 is Lexus' smaller sedan. It is on par with the BMW 3 series or an Audi A4. It has been in production since 2000, with a major update in 2005. The IS 250 is a 5 passenger sedan with 4 wheel disc brakes mounted on 17" wheels. Rear wheel drive is standard with an option to have the engine drive all four wheels. The 250 is available in a retractable hardtop version, called the 250c, but the option for all wheel drive is not available with the convertible.

Power for this platform comes in the form a 2.5 liter V-6 which produces 204 HP and 185 Ft-Lbs. of torque. The engine is Ultra Low Emissions Vehicle II (ULEVII) certified. Power is routed out of the engine via a 6 speed manual or a 6 speed automatic transmission.

While the standard feature list is impressive, so are the options: Bi-Xenon headlights, Birdseye Maple interior, Navigation with rearview camera, and adaptive cruise control with Bluetooth. A performance package is also available which serves up larger wheels and tires along with some other sportier options.
