The Lexus IS is the most exciting sports car on the market. Not only does it have a sleek yet classy design but it also comes with all the added comfort you get from a luxury vehicle.
The IS was created to compete with the BMW's, Audi's and Mercedes however it can give most sport vehicles a true run for their money doing 0 to 60 in about 5 seconds depending on your choice of engine.
Lexus beats it's competition by doing everything really well. The IS is large enough to be used as a family vehicle, has sufficient space to store a stroller in the trunk, mount a car seat in the back and seats 4 passengers comfortably.
Unlike BMW's that tend to be too small in this class, have a really long front making it difficult to see how far you are from the vehicle ahead and the driver feel a little cramped, the IS driver experiences total comfort.
Audi's in this class tend to be very wide and excessively low to the ground making them difficult to park in compact stalls and troublesome when driving over speed bumps. The IS has a pretty good road clearance as well as it's wheels are mounted far forward similarly to Jeeps improving it's ability to go over obstacles.
Mercedes in this class tend to be very luxurious at the expense of gas mileage, being both on the long and heavy end of the spectrum. The IS enjoys a pretty good MPG, (city 21 combined 24 highway 30 for the IS 250 and city 19 combined 22 highway 28 for the IS 350) considering the fact that it is a really safe and sporty vehicle.
A relatively short hood and a fully customizable front seat allow IS drivers to sit high up in their cars giving them a SUV like feel even when driving a sedan. The Lexus IS is a rear wheel drive vehicle making it's turning radius ideal and more fun to drive when drifting around corners.
It is no wonder that the Lexus IS is such a popular car amongst peers especially, when it has everything you need as a sports fan while being comfortable enough to drive your wife to the grocery store.
