The Lexus IS sedan carries over to 2009 with a minor facelift, which includes a restyling of the front and rear bumpers, the grille, and the side mirrors, now with incorporated turn signals. New 17- and 18-inch alloy wheels cap off the exterior changes, while inside, the center instrument cluster has been updated and the rear seat headrests are foldable. Mechanically, the IS's suspension has been retuned to deliver a more athletic ride.
Terrific overall performance; plenty of luxury features and high-tech options; attractive styling; standard safety features
The 2009 Lexus IS 250 and IS 350 sport sedans bring the driving feel of a sports coupe, in a more practical four-door sedan body style, and have some available high-tech features that aren't offered by their head-on competitors.
