Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

For 2018, the Lexus IS 300 gains a four-cylinder and rear-wheel-drive version in its lineup. In actuality, though, this is just last year's IS 200t renamed. The all-wheel-drive version still has a V6 engine, and it gets a 5-horsepower boost (to 260 hp).

PROS
Ride quality is smooth and comfortable on bumpy roads
Cabin is well-isolated from noise
Offers more features for the money compared to German alternatives

CONS
Optional Remote Touch infotainment system is distracting to use
V6 power compares to smaller turbo engines, but isn't as efficient
Handling capabilities do little to create driver excitement
