The 2010 Lexus IS 250 is an entry-level luxury compact sports sedan that seats five passengers. The IS 250 is available with RWD or AWD, though the manual transmission is only available on the RWD models. The engine is a 2.5L V6 which produces 204 hp and can be linked to a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic transmission. New for 2010 is the inclusion of Bluetooth connectivity and XM satellite radio as part of the standard features.Read more Read less
The big news is truly big for the 2010 IS: after nine years on the market, a convertible coupe finally joins the 4-door sedan. Though it looks as if the sedan was merely chopped and shortened to create the convertible, in truth, the only exterior panel they share is the hood. They do share engine and transmission choices, and loads of luxury.
New convertible model; excellent fit and finish; great performance; upscale feel
The standard luxury features of the IS are nice for the price, including leather interior and Bluetooth connectivity even at the base level. Comprehensive safety features are standard as part of the Lexus Vehicle Dynamics Integrated Management system. If you don't opt for the retractable hardtop of the IS C, a power moonroof gives the sedan's passengers a taste of fresh air.
