Expert Rating

Our expert ratings are based on seven comprehensive criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

The Lexus entry in the compact luxury-sport segment, the rear-drive IS 250C offers the brand’s trademark interior plushness in a head-turning convertible body. It might be more at home on the boulevard than the track, but that suits the target market just fine.

What's New for 2014

While the IS sedan wears a fresh redesign this year, the C remains unchanged for the time being, except for some new integrated smartphone apps.

Choosing Your Lexus IS 250C

As its name implies, the IS 250C carries a 2.5-liter V6 with 204 horsepower, the base engine in the IS stable. In a nod to purists, Lexus offers the option of a six-speed manual transmission in place of the six-speed automatic selected by most buyers. The standard retractable hardtop insulates occupants from noise and weather just as well as a fixed roof, although it gobbles trunk space when stowed.

All the expected standard features are here, including leather seating with power in front, keyless ignition, dual-zone automatic climate control, a six-CD changer, and Bluetooth phone and audio. The 250 C gets more interesting as you ponder the available option packages:

Lexus IS 250C Zoom
  • Luxury: Includes upgraded leather upholstery with driver memory and heated and ventilated front seats, wood interior trim, bi-xenon headlights and rain-sensing wipers.
  • Navigation: Bundles a navigation system with a rearview camera, Bluetooth phonebook downloading, HD radio and (optional) 12-speaker Mark Levinson surround sound.
  • F Sport: Enhances the 250 C’s performance with braking and suspension upgrades, 18- or 19-inch dark graphite wheels and sportier styling touches.

Parking sensors and adaptive cruise control are offered separately or as part of the Luxury Package.

CarsDirect Tip

If you’re in the market for a convertible and have always admired Lexus for its luxury and quality, the IS 250 C is an ideal fit—so long as you don’t expect to fit anything bigger than a briefcase in the trunk with the top down.
