The Lexus IS 200t offers a unique exterior that combines elegance with strength. The interior can compete with most of the small luxury sedans on the market. It features high-quality materials all around, from wood trim to chrome. The backseat is surprisingly comfortable for adults. This the IS 200t's second year on the market.

The Audi A4 has been completely redesigned for the 2017 model year. The new design brings aerodynamics to a whole new level with its smooth exterior design. The car is mildly larger, which makes sitting in the back seat much more comfortable for adults. The A4 continues to come off as luxurious, sporty, and durable.

The IS 200t is certainly stylish and luxurious, but can it go head-to-head with the legendary Audi A4?
