Is it truly next generation?By Michael T., Feb 11, 2014I was one of the first ones in line when the new Lexus IS hit the market in 2006. I loved the changes Lexus had done to the car, the look, luxury, everything. But the worst thing about the IS 250 was how underpowered it was. Unfortunately, that doesn't change with the new IS 250. Sure it looks more aggressive and sporty, but under the hood is that boring old 205 horsepower engine. It just doesn't pack enough of a punch to make the IS feel like a sporty sedan. If you're really sold on the IS styling and love what it has to offer in the interior (I surely do) I would highly recommend saving up your pennies to splurge on the IS 350. It's really a disappointment that Lexus didn't take the time to update the engine offerings on the IS models while it gave it a new look. What I will say though is with its better looks in my opinion, the car does handle a lot better than my old one and the tech and interior has been updated to be more modern. The problem at the end of the day for me still is that the IS 250 just isn't fun to drive. Enjoyable, comfortable, yes. But fun? Not quite. ...moreComfortable, quiet, luxurious, smooth
