The 2008 Lexus IS-F comes equipped with a long, long list of standard features—and reviewers felt most of the options added to the Lexus experience, instead of detracting from it.
The Lexus IS-F, after all, is a car worthy enough to have its own “special Neiman Marcus Edition,” Motor Trend reports. “All the typical amenities are standard or available, including heated seats, navigation, Mark Levinson surround-sound audio, and radar-guided cruise,” they add, with a special fondness for the “optional (and gorgeous) high-contrast interior, with dramatic white-on-black leather.”
The Detroit News mirrored those comments, pointing out favorite features like iPod inputs, heated seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, heated 10-way power front seats, and a six-disc CD changer, perfect for when “you blow the doors off a BMW.”
Jalopnik thinks the Lexus IS-F’s navigation system is “decent,” and adores the digital “F” that appears in the instruments. Their enthusiast-addled advice? “Check the sunroof-delete box. Saves you 55 pounds up top.”
