In all ways, the Lexus IS250C is to live with


1. The IS250C is powered by a 2.5L V6 204-hp and 185 ft-lbs of torque. A automatic is optional with a manual standard.

2. Both and 350 convertibles feature a retractable

3. Based on the same platform as the the only body panel is the hood.

4. Unique features auto flip-down rear-seat a slide/fold button for access to the seats and a climate control that adjusts to the temperature and when the top is down.

One of the newest entries into the top community is the Lexus IS250 It is based on the popular rear drive IS sedans, using the base engine, but except for the they share no body It has a few shortcomings, but in the overall pleasure to category, the IS Convertible delivers.


hard top roadsters, like the BMW Z4 and Miata, mar the shape of their with a bulbous looking to accommodate the hard roof and just ruin the styling of the car the top is in place. But the three-piece aluminum on the IS is able to maintain a sleek from the steeply raked on back to the trunk lid.

One of the typical up-sides to a metal roof is a larger rear for better vision out the back. with this Lexus, the window is unusually small and a poor view rearward the top is closed. Lexus boasts the top can be lowered or raised in a mere 20 so I guess it must be the fasted top in the next time Speed holds it’s annual top races.


Even though the of the IS Convertible isn’t adversely by the hard top, the trunk surely is. There’s room when the top is up, but when it’s the trunk is transformed into a glove box. If you’re a weekend getaway for two, and to drop the top, be prepared to use the seat area for your The use of a soft-top would not only left plenty more but would also limit the gain and they generally less.


The IS is powered by a direct fuel 2.5 liter V6, and the motor puts out and 185 ft-lbs of torque. A 306-hp, engine is available for those hotter performance. My test car was the engine, and I found it to have than enough pep to make the little Lexus enjoyable. The is smooth, comes on strong up to the redline, and is rather quiet, as a luxury car. Zero to 60 are in the mid-8 seconds range. For a car just over 3,800lbs, not bad. And the gas mileage is a very 21-mpg city, 29-mpg The IS is not meant to be a sportscar, but rather a sporty car, and it fills bill quite nicely.

The 6-Speed manumatic transmission paddle shifters operates and the manual shifts are about for reaction time. The 4-wheel brakes are ABS and EBD equipped, and they well, with decent feel. The all season 225/45/17 provide a good compromise of quiet ride, and durability.


One thing that troubles convertible that was ever except the new Bentley Continental is cowl shake. No matter how extra bracing they in, the chassis exhibits some of flex when the top is in the trunk. The IS shake falls in the middle of the – better then most, not as as others. It’s a bit better the 3-series, not as good as the Audi A5. But the benefit of the open air driving far outweighs the drawback. With the top up, the Lexus feels solid as a vault.
