Mark Levinson audio system delivers excellent sound quality.
CNET

The iPod interface...can be a bit frustrating.
Edmunds

Dip into the F-Sport catalog, however, and the dollars start adding up.

CNET

The 2011 Lexus IS sedans have a strong list of standard features, even when compared with other sport sedans in its price range. All IS 250 and IS 350 models include leather upholstery, power front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, a power moonroof, a power-adjustable steering wheel, and a HomeLink garage-door opener, and all-wheel-drive models get standard front heated seats. Newly standard on IS 350 models are HID headlamps and LED running lamps.

Bluetooth hands-free capability is built into the base audio system, which has a six-disc changer, 13 speakers, and 194 watts of power and has iPod connectivity and Bluetooth audio streaming compatibility. A 300-watt Mark Levinson surround sound system includes ten separate amplifier channels and also has the capability to play audio DVDs and DVD movies.

Optional upgrades for the IS range include a retractable moonroof, ventilated front seats, dynamic radar cruise control, adaptive front lighting, and a backup camera. There's also a navigation system with live traffic data, and the Lexus Enform suite of services available through subscription allows weather sports, and stock information, turn-by-turn guidance, or roadside assistance.

Conclusion

The 2011 Lexus IS 250 and IS 350 sedans have up-to-date connectivity items as part of a strong feature set that stacks up well in any comparison.

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.
