I have owned my IS 250 AWD for about a month now. I thought I was compromising on performance when I made the practical move to go with the AWD of the 250 instead of the 350. I have not been disappointed in my decision at all. The 250 has ample get up and go, with great gas mileage. The handling is great as well, not to mention all of the cool gadgets and sound system. I've been throughly pleased everytime I get behind the wheel.
AWD, GPS, tilt down mirrors and backup camera in reverse, auto sunshade, push button start, keyless entry, corner tracking headlamps.
