This is the car that makes me smile every time I get in it! I have driven a lot cars in the past in search of the car the I truly enjoy driving. This car has taken that title. No matter what the weather conditions, road conditions, or traffic conditions, I enjoy driving the IS 350. It is smooth, powerful, refined and classy. The IS is essentially a shortened GS. It has very sophisticated lines and an elegant but sporty interior. It is a fabulous luxury car with a "sleeper" motor that, from personal experience, will beat a mustang cobra or 2!
Classy and smooth exterior. Comfortable but tight ride and steering. Much improved navigation and DVD surround system. Feels like it is a much more expensive car. Factory MP3 Player/iPod integration to the radio.
Even though it is billed as a "sub-compact, the rear seat are a bit cramped and (the biggie) they do NOT fold down.
