crowded and turbulent
The Los Angeles Times

lacks...the crisp visual tailoring of BMW's 3 Series
Kelley Blue Book



The 2010 Lexus IS's exterior styling is best summed up as attractive but not eye-catching.

The Orlando Sentinel calls the 2010 IS a "BMW Series-3 fighter," while Car and Driver also praises its looks: "the styling Lexus gave the new IS line turns the car from sharp to stunning." Cars.com points out that the 2010 Lexus IS's styling also "bears a strong family resemblance to its larger, GS series of sport sedans." As always, however, beauty is in the eye of the beholder; Kelley Blue Book finds the Lexus a bit short of its German rivals, and The Los Angeles Times describes the 2010 Lexus IS design as "crowded and turbulent."

The 2010 Lexus IS's interior gets top marks from most reviewers. Car and Driver finds the interior "has a more luxurious look, and the leather and plastic seem even better than those in the original model." ConsumerGuide also raves about the interior: "decor is the Lexus-typical mix of rich-looking upholstery, soft-touch surfaces, and high-grade plastics." Edmunds reviewers deem the cabin to be "impeccably finished."

Conclusion

The 2010 Lexus IS wears a familiar and comfortable, if somewhat unexciting look.

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.
