Great luxury car, but not a sports car

2007 Lexus IS 250 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 6cyl 6A)

Review

So this is the most sporty offering from Lexus (save for the IS 350, but that's another ballgame). This makes me seriously question Lexus' ability to build a sports car. The ride is great, the interior is comfortable, the options and gadgets are perfect, the exterior looks beautiful but where's the power? Where's the handling? Where's the fun factor. Sure, coming from a Honda it's greatly powerful and fun, but after recently trading it in and looking at offerings from BMW and Infiniti, this car feels like a slowpoke! For not much more a 328 or G35 would be exponentially more fun to drive. Sure, the luxury is there, which I love and appreciate, but the sporting characteristic is not.

Best Features

More comfortable inside (and nicer looking inside) than a BMW, smooth ride, smooth (though underpowered) engine, looks great, very cheap for a relatively refined car.

Worst Features

Improve the engine, make the handling and steering not feel numb,
