Expert Quotes:

21 mpg city, 30 highway (automatic IS 250 C); 19/27 (manual IS 250 C); 20/27 (automatic IS 350 C)

The 2011 IS C models get fuel economy ratings ranging from 19 to 21 in the city and 27 to 30 on the highway. That's about the same as that of a V-6 mid-size sedan, and not too shabby for a sporty coupe with a retractable hardtop. And according to the federal government, that ranks the IS C right in the middle of the carbon-footprint scale.

The six-speed automatic that's available in the IS 250 C has a much taller top gear than the six-speed manual, so its highway fuel economy is considerably higher (30 mpg versus 27).

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.
