Drivers seeking a small luxury sedan with eye-catching style and exceptional comfort need look no further than the 2018 Lexus IS 350. Although considered Lexus' entry-level lineup, the IS 350 is rife with appeal, offering the nameplate's signature reputation for quality, comfort and reliability while remaining a relatively affordable choice.
Lexus refreshed the IS lineup last year with upgrades including LED headlights, restyled front and rear bumpers, and standard safety tech including automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, and lane departure warning with steering assist. Changes for 2018 are minimal but include a now-standard backup camera, optional adaptive headlights, and a 5-horsepower increase for the IS 350's optional V6 engine (now up to 311 horsepower). The F Sport version also gets the addition of a limited-slip differential.
The IS 350 is styled like a sport sedan, and it can be fun to drive, but its forte really is delivering a smooth, quiet ride, whether hitting the open road or running errands around town. Acceleration is acceptable but lags a bit behind most competitors, and handling is more tuned for comfort than performance. Buyers looking for firmer suspension and a bit more cornering prowess might want to consider adding the F Sport package.
Inside, the IS 350 offers a modern, attractive design highlighted by quality materials and a wealth of standard or available comfort and convenience items. Cabin space is not abundant, however. Front seat occupants may find the wide center console intrusive, and those in back won't find as much legroom as in many rival models.
The IS 350 comes well-equipped with standard keyless entry, dual-zone automatic climate control, Bluetooth connectivity and a premium sound system. A number of packages and stand-alone options allow buyers to add technology and luxury appointments as they see fit. And then there's the F Sport package, with such performance goodies as larger wheels and tires, a stiffer sport-tuned suspension and upgraded brakes. Whatever your preference, let Edmunds help you find the 2018 Lexus IS 300 that best meets your needs.
