2013 Lexus IS 350 Fuel Economy

6.0
Fuel Economy

The 2013 Lexus IS sedans aren't entirely at the back of the pack among premium or luxury sedans, but their EPA fuel economy ratings are nothing to brag about.

At 21 mpg city, 30 highway (IS 250) or 19/27 (IS 350) for the rear-wheel-drive versions, the IS models lag behind both base four-cylinder versions of rivals like the BMW 3-Series and Audi A4--as well as some six-cylinder versions of some sedans this size. And neither of these models makes up for it in sheer performance. 

The 2013 Lexus IS sedans don't look particularly green--especially when you consider their size and space.

Otherwise, if you're considering the high-performance, V-8-powered IS F, its ratings of 16/23 mpg will send green-minded shoppers running.
