21 City / 29 Highway
Automotive Editor -

In recent years, Lexus has rejuvenated its product portfolio with some bold style. The 2014 Lexus IS sedan represents the new Lexus design DNA and at long last poses a credible threat to European rivals like the BMW 3 Series, Mercedes Benz C-Class and Audi A4.

What's New for 2014

The all-new IS 250 highlights a compelling new design, improved handling and more interior space. Also, Lexus’ revamped infotainment platform makes its debut. No manual transmission is available.

Choosing Your Lexus IS 250

Under the hood is the familiar all-aluminum V6 that entered production nearly eight years ago. This is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. The 2.5-liter V6 puts out 204 horsepower and 185 pound-feet of torque while serving up fuel economy numbers of 21 mpg city and 30 mpg highway in rear-wheel drive configuration, or 20 mpg city and 27 mpg highway in all-wheel drive.

The IS 250 has a step up on some German competitors with more standard features. Expect a moonroof, xenon headlights, an 8-speaker audio system with a 7-inch LCD display, keyless access and start, and LED running lights. You'll still pay extra for genuine leather upholstery—the base IS 250 comes with NuLuxe faux-leather.

Standard safety equipment consists of 10 airbags, an advanced suite of electronic stability controls, and Safety Connect telematics services with automatic collision notification, roadside assistance, and stolen vehicle location.

The main choices for buyers include Navigation and Premium Packages:
