Not yet tested

The Lexus IS C convertibles haven't yet been crash-tested—and they might never be, given the IS C's relatively low-volume sales.

That said, the Lexus IS sedans have earned an impressive—but not excellent—set of safety ratings, including 'good' ratings for frontal and side impact and 'acceptable' for rear impact. And safety equipment itself is quite good, including electronic stability control, anti-lock four-wheel disc braked, head- and torso-protecting seat-mounted side airbags, and a pop-up rollover bar behind the back seats.

Visibility with the top up can leave a lot to be desired, as is the case in a lot of convertible models, but an available rearview camera system and front and rear parking sensors will help remedy the situation—at least when parking.

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.
