The 2011 Lexus IS family isn't that green, but it's about typical for this class of sport sedans; on the other hand, the IS F is a guzzler.

Expert Quotes:

19 mpg city, 27 highway (IS 250 manual); 21/30 (IS 250 automatic); 19/27 (IS 250 AWD); 20/27 (IS 350); 18/25 (IS 350 AWD); 16/23 (IS F)
U.S. EPA





With EPA ratings ranging from 18 to 21 mpg in the city, and 25 to 30 on the highway, the IS 250 and IS 350 models are about on par for the class, relative to other compact sport sedans like the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, BMW 3-Series, and Infiniti G37.

One thing worth noting if you're considering the IS 250: Automatic-transmission models of the IS 250 get significantly better mileage (30 versus 27) on the highway, due to a much taller top gear. It could make a big difference in the long run.

The one model in the lineup that isn't at all green is the high-performance IS F. It earns just 16 mpg city, 23 highway from its big V-8.

Conclusion

The 2011 Lexus IS family isn't that green, but it's about typical for this class of sport sedans; on the other hand, the IS F is a guzzler.

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.
