I am former Lexus IS 300 owner and wanted a similar sporty sedan. I am utterly impressed with the value this vehicle provides. I like how this package has everything you need without needing to purchase any extras for increased costs. Reasonably priced Japanese built car with amazing performance and decent looks. You cant go wrong and throw in the AWD while your at it. Pound for pound this blows my IS 300 out of the water with much greater value. The interior was nicer in the Lexus IS 300 but thats it.
265 hp... super fast performance front, side and rear spoilers, hood scoop that is classy and not loud, performance tuned, quality wheels, amazing mag design and gun metal color, decent outside body, looks, wrx seats, good price sport tuned suspension
Standard short throw shifter. Blue xenons and fogs. Premium stereo is not good should have a much better sounding stereo system for the price paid. Should have had the rear underbody spoiler like the 5 door wrx. Outside body does not look as good as your competitor the ralliart, evolution.
