On Styling

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 wears a familiar and comfortable, if somewhat unexciting look.

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."
