Clearly this car is the luxury alternative for those seeking refinement and pep. The RWD Lexus offers a nice spurt but give way more emphasis to luxury and refinement than just performance. My IS comes with Bluetooth and the Navigation package as well as the larger summer tires. Even in the break-in period I am getting north of 30 MPG. The comfort is unparalleled in its class. Having done substantial driving in the BMW 325, Acura TL and VW Passat, I can say that this car has no peer. The ventilated seats offer creature comfort that is very useful to those of us in South Florida. I found the Acura to have cheap interior and a top heavy sway the interior was inferior especially the fake wood stickers.
Hands free driving and communication, ventilated seats., Style and interior quality, Brighter and easier to use Navi system.
The rear mounted camera is necessary due to the lack of rear window view.
