2018 Lexus IS In-Depth Review: A Different Type of Sports Sedan

If you’re looking for a high-end luxury car with most bells and whistles but a low sticker price, then the 2018 Lexus IS might be the car for you. It has more HP than the previous year model but the center console is not as good as other models. There were a few changes between model years 2017 and 2018 but this is a solid buy.

Key Takeaways:

  • The IS stands out because of its striking appearance, and the entry-level model provides that for as little as $39,205
  • Statement-making styling, on-point chassis setup, standard driver assists.
  • An optional F Sport package features a more aggressive appearance and a handful of performance tweaks.

“Despite aggressive styling and solid dynamics, it’s in an uphill fight against the best.”
