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

The 2018 Lexus IS ranked #11 in Luxury Small Cars. Currently the Lexus IS has a score of 8.2 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 36 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Upscale interior
Quick acceleration
Cushioned ride

Cons
Subpar fuel economy
Undersized trunk
Frustrating infotainment system controller

The Lexus IS needs more powertrain guts, and more styling glory, to tackle the cars it wants to take down.

Pros
Lots of standard equipment
Subtle, stylish look
Swift-shifting 8-speed
Long options list
F Sport headed in the right direction

Cons
Too many cooks under the hood
Awkward powertrain walk
Pricey options
Tight rear seats
