Lexus is offering a whole range of components to sharpen up its entry-level sedan

sporty interior is as good as you'll find in this segment
Edmunds


The Lexus IS hasn't changed much in many years; its exterior is sleek, low, and attractive but not particularly eye-catching, though the design overall has nice proportions. In some respects, the styling echoes that of the larger GS sport sedans, with its rather low hoodline and rising beltline, which altogether gives it a wedge-like appearance from some angles.

For 2011, the IS sedans receive a light touch-up that includes a new grille and front bumper, slightly different rear exhaust tip and taillamp covers, HID headlamps with LED running lamps on the IS 350, and a new 17-inch wheel design.

The newly available F-Sport Package changes the IS's look somewhat, adding dark-chrome-finished 18-inch alloys, a dark-chrome grille, a front lip spoiler, rear spoiler, and a special Ultrasonic Blue exterior.

The interior of the IS sedans is rich-looking but by no means trend-setting. The four well-bolstered seating positions are split by a console that divides the cockpit. Here the matte-metallic center stack of controls and softly curved dash appear a bit dated, at a time when sport sedans are getting either curvier inside or more overtly angular. Wood and aluminum trims, along with new silver-finished trim for the steering wheel, gauge cluster, and the area above the glovebox, add some richness.

Conclusion

The 2011 Lexus IS 250 and 350 are 2010 Lexus IS are good-looking, though far from overt or attention-getting.

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.
