The 2015 Lexus IS 250 sport sedan comes with a good blend of style, comfort, driving dynamics and technology. As for the 4-door IS, it comes back, with all the style and flamboyance related to its German sport car competitors, owing to its edgy good appearance, better performance, and matchless reputation for consistency. The next Lexus IS 250 comes with a re-tuned suspension and strengthening of the chassis to perk up handling and dynamic ability. In reality, the consequence is a sedan that drives very much similar to the earlier IS, but with just a little more precision. It is absolutely an incremental development of the chops of IS sport-sedan, instead of a revolutionary improvement.
The 2015 Lexus IS’s most obvious part of the exterior design is the spindle grille at its front. The new IS’s F Sport models come with an all-black mesh grille in the spindle shape, generating a gaping, aggressive lips, whereas its standard models get somewhat a more normal appearance with horizontal bars, occupying the upper 2/3rd of the spindle opening. Pointed tail lights and carved sides offer the vehicle a dynamic feel to the outline, whereas the simple, sparkling back end offers the novel look on a tight and neat note. Standard wheels are 17-inch 10-spoke alloy with 225/45R17 all-season performance tires and as option three sets of 18-inch mesh alloy wheels with 225/40R18 front, 255/35R18 rear, summer performance tires.
Lexus IS 250 2015 Interior
The interior of the new Lexus IS 250 comes with almost unchanged features, with the exemption of an optional piano black trim and a novel shadow of gray interior. An attractively wrapped dashboard adds a fashionable feel to the interior design, whereas the controls on the center stack are simple and they are laid out austerely. The shape of the steering wheel comes with the improved look and feel, and in the F Sport mock-ups, an LFA supercar-stimulated digital instrument exhibit takes the next gen Lexus IS 250 to the subsequent level. Audio system is great, Mark Levinson Premium Surround System with 15 speakers(7.1-channel) and 835-watts. Also there is 4.2-inch full color multi-information display with control over everything(audio, trip, navigation, phone, temperature)
The look and feel of the high-quality Interior materials is more refined, and the seats of the new sedan are well-bolstered, and they are very comfortable. The back seat offers additional space due to slight modifications in the size of the car, whereas the trunk in the sedan is still on the small end of the range in the category at 13.8 cubic feet, and it is sufficiently huge for most purposes.
