great fun car to drive
By impaciente on
2014 Lexus IS 250 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 6cyl 6A)
The car is fantastic. Many improvements compared to the previous model, which in my opinion was not bad at all. In the driving department, in my humble opinion, is a lot better than the current 3 series, specially in the sports mode. Interior comforts and the IT in the car are tip top compared to the europeans. Quality building is typical Lexus and from a design point of view is very innovative (untyplical lexus.... and I would say untypical BMW, MB Audi).
I love the exterior styling, though this is a matter of likes.
I had 2008 and 2011 IS250. Radio system was much better than the one i have now 2014. This one if you are not in HD, is horrible. and sometimes even in HD, doesn't sound like the older versions
The dash board plastic interior is very, very cheap looking. 2008 and 2011 the quality was much better and looked better.
The phone system and radio bluetooth doesn't allow you to operate, which i thinks a very safety feature. However it doesn't allow the passenger to do it either. You want to make a phone call or use the bluetooth radio as an Ipad or Iphone for music and you are going in a expressway at high speed, you have to pull over to operate. Is this reasonable? It must be a way that this should or must be different!!!
The trunk is so light i almost broke it the first time i tried to close it. Compare to 2008 and 2011 were very heavy and strong..
Not very satisfy with the car IS250 2014!! :-(
