2013 Lexus IS 250 Overview

The entry level model of Lexus’ IS-series of compact luxury cars, the 2013 IS 250 features rear-wheel drive for a sporty driving experience that pairs nicely with a refined interior.

For 2013, the IS 250 drops the manual transmission, leaving the six-speed automatic with wheel-mounted paddle shifters as the only transmission option.

The IS 250 has kept pretty much the same shape throughout the years and we’re guessing that redesign is just over the horizon to bring the entire IS-series up to date with Lexus latest style language, seen on the GS sedan and RX 350 crossover. That being said, the current version is still a handsome car. It sits low in the front, with a wide stance and beefed up haunches that suggest nimbleness and a hint of aggression. 17-inch alloy wheels are standard, while 18-inch wheels, xenon high-intensity discharge headlights, and rain-sensing wipers are optional.

Providing the power is a 204-horsepower, 2.5-liter V-6 that outputs 185 pounds-feet of torque and is mated to the aforementioned six-speed automatic. All-wheel drive is optional and can split power 50/50 front/rear in low-traction situations. A double-wishbone front and multilink rear suspension work to provide a driving experience that is both comfortable and engaging. The IS 250 has EPA estimated fuel economy ratings of 21 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway (27 mpg on the highway with AWD).

Inside, the IS 250 offers plenty of standard comfort and convenience features including dual-zone automatic climate control, a power moonroof, USB/iPod connectivity, push button start, Bluetooth, and leather upholstery. There is seating for up to five passengers, but backseat room can get tight in a hurry; we wouldn’t recommend putting more than two people back there for longer trips. Options include a navigation system that accepts voice commands, Lexus’ Enform telematics system, and a Mark Levinson 14-speaker sound system.

When it comes to safety, the IS 250 has you covered with Lexus’ Safety Connect service, which automatically notifies authorities after a crash, as standard equipment. Also standard are all-disc antilock brakes, an electronic stability system, and eight airbags.
