New for 2006, the three Lexus IS sedan models continue largely unchanged for 2007. In addition to adding manual overrides to the stability and traction controls, the X Package is a new package that is available on rear-wheel drive IS models. It includes a sport-tuned suspension, 18-inch alloys, a front spoiler, sport pedals, and illuminated door sill plates.
Well-equipped for sport driving; plenty of luxury items; available AWD; reliability.
The 2007 Lexus IS 250 is one of the few sedans available that offers some sporty driving characteristics, luxury, and available all-wheel drive. The IS 350 competes directly with the Infiniti G35 and the BMW 3-Sereis, and offers reliability that should surpass both of these models. The IS twins compete in a crowded segment of the market known as near-luxury sedans. Lexus still offers the ES 350 for those folks looking for the traditional Lexus comfort. This leaves the IS models for those drivers who frequently go looking for the long and winding road home.
