Expert Quotes:

The top was designed, developed, and constructed in-house.
Motor Trend

While the trunk is by no means spacious when the roof's down, it can hold a 9-in.-diameter golf bag, and there's even a space-saver spare tire below the load floor.
Road & Track

The three-piece unit performs a ballet of mechanical wizardry in about 20 seconds—a feat that makes this top the fastest three-piece in the land

The 2011 Lexus IS C lineup has a full range of tech features, with many of the more common ones standard and some of the more leading-edge tech features optional. The Lexus IS C lineup is also quite the luxury bargain, when you consider its also priced very competitively, and when you consider the cost of a car like the Lexus IS 250C, you'll realize it's a true luxury bargain.

Feature content nearly the same between the 2010 Lexus IS 250C and IS 350C, but between the IS C and the standard IS sedan lineup, there are some key differences meant to keep convertible living as easy as possible. The audio system adjusts its volume up when the top is down, and the fan cranks up automatically to supply more air. The IS C also comes standard with an eight-speaker audio system with six-disc changer, satellite radio, and a USB interface.

Lexus makes plenty of high-tech options available, such as Intuitive Park Assist, Adaptive Front Lighting with bi-xenon headlamps, and a voice-activated navigation system. Both the sound system and the climate control system automatically change their operation depending on whether the top is up or down. A Luxury Package adds rain-sensing wipers, HID adaptive front lighting (which now for 2011 are packaged together with LED running lamps), semi-aniline leather, and heated/ventilated seats with memory.

In addition to the factory options, a new line of F Sport dealer-installed accessories is offered on the IS C. There, for a somewhat high price, buyers can spice up the IS C's appearance with wheel upgrades and special trims, add a more vocal exhaust, or upgrade the suspension and brakes.

For 2011, there are a few new exterior colors on offer, and the interior gets new black metallic and silver trims.

Conclusion

With an extensive set of standard features, plenty of high-tech options, and dealer-installed performance accessories, you'll be able to get the IS C you want.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
