Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

For 2018, the Lexus IS 350 adds more horsepower, a rearview camera and, on rear-wheel-drive F Sport trims, a limited-slip differential. Adaptive front headlights are optional.

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
All-wheel drive limited to outdated six-speed transmission
Handling capabilities do little to create driver excitement

By: 
edmunds.com

Pros
Soft but supportive F Sport front seats
F Sport's motorized gauge cluster
Navigation system's 10.3-inch screen
Ride comfort on most surfaces
Backseat legroom

Cons
Weak turbo four-cylinder drivetrain
Sluggish, indecisive eight-speed automatic
Lack of steering feedback and athleticism
Frustrating Remote Touch controller
Some cheap-looking interior trim
Large ledge between trunk floor and folded backseat

By: 
cars.com

Pros
Statement-making styling,
on-point chassis setup,
standard driver assists.

Cons
Subpar infotainment system,
below-average fuel economy,
engines need more oomph.

Pros
Strong engines
Roomy seats in both rows
User-friendly infotainment system

Cons
Uneven ride quality
Floaty handling
Lower safety scores than rivals

For 2018, Chrysler has shuffled the 300's features and trim level names, but otherwise the car remains mechanically the same. The V8 engine was previously available across the board, but it is now offered on just two trim levels.

PROS
Cabin is quiet, with an upscale look and feel
Available V8 engine suits the car's personality well
Touchscreen technology interface is easy to use

CONS
V8 engine now limited to just two trim levels
Hard to see out the back because of small rear window and thick roof pillars
