Few new tricks join the 2010 Lexus IS's built-in bag, but that's not all bad, as the existing list of features is already strong. New for 2010 is the ability to stream audio from stereo Bluetooth devices like phones and MP3 players, voice dial contacts via the hands-free system, plus a new traffic-aware navigation system that can route around obstacles. Despite the standard and available options, however, it still lags a bit behind the feature sheets of the competition.

The Orlando Sentinel is especially complimentary regarding Lexus IS features: "Instruments and controls are thoughtfully designed, and the navigation system is very easy to use, one of the best offered." Edmunds's opinion is in line with that of the Orlando Sentinel, calling the Lexus IS's electronic interfaces "one of the best...in the luxury game, with easy to use controls all around." The navigation system of the 2010 Lexus, which can be a bugbear on many vehicles, is "particularly friendly," declares Edmunds. According to Cars.com, features include "a standard Smart Access keyless entry system with a push-button engine starter."

Audiophiles will enjoy the Mark Levinson sound system, though CNet notes, "At only 270 watts, the amplifier is a little weak."

Adding to the basics this year, the IS is now available with Lexus's Safety Connect service, enabling telematic emergency support through the car's navigation and communications system. The Enform system, also available as a subscription service, offers live help on the fly, including turn-by-turn directions and other assistance.

Optional upgrades for the IS range include a retractable moonroof, ventilated front seats, dynamic radar cruise control, adaptive front lighting, a power tilt/telescoping steering wheel, and a backup camera.

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.
