2013 Lexus IS250 Sedan

2013 Lexus IS250 Review

(3 Stars) 

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

A muscular entry in the luxury sport sedan market, the 2013 Lexus IS250 offers a sophisticated design and all of the excellent standard features one would expect of a car in its class. Marred perhaps a bit by its lackluster performance, the IS250 is certainly practical for everyday use and gets decent fuel economy to boot. Offering a host of great options and exclusive packages, the IS250 is a highly customizable vehicle inside and out. While not achieving the staggering speeds or high performance that many of its major competitors do, it does offer all the elegance, comforts, and conveniences one would expect from a luxury sedan. The IS250 also offers a competitive edge with its ride comfort and elegant design.
