Driving a convertible has always been about freedom, specifically freedom of choice: top up when conditions are unfriendly or unwarranted, or top down to soak in the warm summer sun or cool moonlit breezes. And today it seems there are more freedom-seekers than ever before, judging by the growing number of premium retractable-hardtop convertibles. Lexus' entry-level offering in this segment is the IS 250C. Like its rivals, the Lexus IS 250C combines the timeless allure of an open-roof car with the refinement and all-season functionality of a luxury coupe.
Closed up tight, the 250C looks like a resculpted coupe version of the IS four-door sedan, albeit one with a rather large rear end. At the touch of a button, the three-piece aluminum hardtop roof and side windows elegantly glide away in about 20 seconds, revealing an upscale cabin with high-quality materials. The IS 250C isn't especially swift (you'll want its more powerful 350C sibling for that), but it offers all the fresh air and four-season freedom that two occupants (four in a pinch) could reasonably desire.
