Review: 2011 Lexus

While the IS-series have been a part of the Lexus for several years, in 2010 a hardtop convertible was added. I was to briefly sample an IS250C a years ago-I was generally with the package, as it seemed to all that one would expect a Lexus, but the 2.5L 204hp V-6 me wanting for more power. Lexus offers a more IS convertible in the IS350C that the power the price promises. And of a thirty minute stint at the the IS350C would be my daily for a full week. Read on to see how it was to with the IS, and is it worth the premium the IS250C?

Visually, the two cars are and I found it ironic that the I received was the same color, and had the wheels its lesser brother I had previously. Which is a good Our test car, finished in Red Mica had a rich appearance, and the 18″ graphite alloys gave the IS a sophisticated touch. Adding to the look were the LED daytime lights, included in the optional Package. From the front, the car is recognizable as a Lexus IS-a car, but understated. With a car this, car designers face a challenge to make a car look while being capable of a hardtop roof into its Not easy. From the rear, the looks better in person in pictures. It is not ungainly, but there is no it is big. I did wonder what a it would have made if made the car a

rag top.

But you’re not looking at the hump of the when you’re driving it, and it is in the where the Lexus really into its own. Everything feels, and smells just Seats that coddle wrapped in buttery smooth faced with crystal gauges, rich looking trim and basically every comfort you could hope the IS350C is the sort of car that all the stresses of the day moments after you inside. And that is precisely one expects from a proper Top up, the car is an isolation chamber, top down, feeling the sun and wind through hair (not too much, right), resplendent in the comfort, the sound from the stereo, and the in every surface you touch is quality.

So, how does she go? Well, as one hope in a premium luxury the IS350C is rear wheel And while the IS250C gets you the IS350C moves with thanks to its 3.5L V-6, at 306hp, paired to a six-speed 0-60mph comes in just six seconds, so there is no question the car is But this is not a car for stop light races. The satisfaction with the is knowing that silky engine has just the right of passing power when you it. Top down, the IS felt rock with no cowl shake. and handling is comfortable, and perfectly other words, just for a grand tourer.


Which makes me scratch my when other reviews comparing the IS350C to cars the BMW 3-series convertible and Infiniti G37 cars that are far edgier and intense than the Lexus. Can you the Lexus hard and fast? but that’s not what the IS350C is and Lexus understands its buyer enough to know they’re not cross-shopped with the guy seeking a BMW with a six-speed manual and M Package.

So how was it living with the IS350C? A really. Granted, as a married guy a five year old, I’m not the demographic for this car. But the IS350C did day care drop off just fine, car seat and In particular, I loved the one-touch to slide the passenger seat for easy ingress/egress for my son. It early July, I had the top down at moment, so much as the weather The top lowers in about twenty but with the top down, forget trunk space. For a weekend you have to choose to put the luggage in and drive with the top up, or go top down, your bags in the back

So, what does all this A Lexus IS350C starts at Our test car included options as 18″ alloys, headlight washers, Package (includes bi-xenon LED DTRLs, heated/ventilated seats, fold and slide seats, and wood trim), Navigation and Intuitive Parking Assist for an as total of $53,692. Hardly but about what you would for a car in this league.

In sum, the acquits itself flawlessly as a convertible. It is the perfect car for summer cruising in total comfort and which I can personally attest to, as the IS to be a great companion for cruising on a Fourth of July weekend on the coast in Connecticut, as we chased shows. And for that, the IS250C have done just as but for the couple desiring a getaway car for weekend retreat out of town, I say go for the of the IS350C.
