Expert Rating

4.6 (Excellent)
19 City / 27 Highway

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

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

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

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

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

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

2014 Lexus IS 350C OVERVIEW

The topless offering in the compact Lexus IS line, the 350 C wraps high content, sporty looks and an energetic V6 into one refined package.

What's New for 2014

The IS sedan gets a thorough update for 2014, but the convertible C stands pat. The only change to report is an expanded suite of smartphone apps.

Choosing Your Lexus IS 350C

The 350 C gets a 3.5-liter V6 with a stout 306 horsepower—about 100 more than the similar 250 C model. Power goes to the rear wheels through a six-speed automatic transmission with manual shift capability. Zero to 60 mph comes in 5.8 seconds, yet mileage stays respectable at 22 mpg combined.

Luxury-minded buyers will appreciate the standard retractable metal top, which offers the quietness of a coupe when the sun isn’t shining.

Appropriate to a car of its stature, the IS 350 doesn’t skimp when it comes to standard equipment. Every example gets leather seats with front power, keyless access and ignition, Bluetooth phone and audio, a six-CD changer and 17-inch alloy wheels.

You can tailor the IS 350 to you tastes with the available option packages:

  • Luxury: Cranks up the luxury quotient with upgraded leather upholstery, power-folding ventilated and heated front seats with memory, rain-sensing wipers, xenon headlamps, auto- dimming and titling side mirrors, illuminated door sills and maple interior trim.
  • Navigation: Includes a navigation system, a rearview camera, HD radio, a suite of integrated smartphone apps and an optional Mark Levinson sound system.
  • F Sport: Endows the 350 C with a firmer suspension, 18-inch wheels, heated and ventilated sport seats, and sporty appearance details.

For safety, Lexus offers parking sensors and adaptive cruise control with collision mitigation as standalone options.
