  • Lexus IS 250C (2009 - 2013)
    Incredibly refined. Barely any top-down turbulence. Metal-folding roof retracts smoothly. Effortless performance.
  • Lexus IS (2005 - 2013)
    Very well built. Top quality interior. Lexus dealers are best in the business. Impressive refinement. All engines chain cam. IS250 probably the most reliable car you can buy.
