Expert Quotes:

19 mpg city, 28 highway (IS 250 manual); 21/30 (IS 250 automatic); 19/27 (IS 250 AWD); 19/27 (IS 350); 18/26 (IS 350 AWD); 16/23 (IS F)
U.S. EPA





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. 

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.

Conclusion

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

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.
