2006 Lexus IS 250 4dr Sedan (2.5L 6cyl 6A)

Review

Initial presentation/design excellent. Ride/handling tradeoff poor compared to best in class; ride is too busy/abrupt for actual handling precision and ability. Electric steering numb. The relationship between dash/windowsill height and seat height makes visibility poor in the name of style and pedestrian safety standards. The transmission, while smooth, is easily confused and is generally delayed when a downshift is required. Engine is smooth and adequate but transmission makes it feel flat-footed. Various technology is advanced and easy to use.

Best Features

Tech interfaces.

Worst Features

Refine ride/handling relationship and transmission performance.
