SAFETY | 8 out of 10

Expert Quotes:

Five stars overall; four stars, frontal; five stars side; five stars rollover

"Good" in side- and moderate overlap impact tests.

On some cars with the collision mitigation system, the electric steering assist will actually speed up the steering ratio if the driver tries to avoid a collision at the last second.

The 2014 Lexus IS offers many available features that enhance safety on the road, including subscription-free traffic and weather updates in the new infotainment system, ten airbags, lane departure warning, blind spot notification, and cross-traffic warning all standard.

And it's earned a top five-star Overall Rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), including four-star frontal results and top five-star results for side impact and rollover. Versus the outgoing 2013 IS, which had earned four stars overall, stronger side-impact results pushed the new 2014 IS 250 that was tested up to its five-star result.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) rates the 2014 Lexus IS with its top mark of "good" in moderate overlap and side-impact crash tests, but only "basic" in front crash prevention, though the IIHS hasn't yet tested the optional forward crash prevention system of the 2014 IS.

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.
