2014 Lexus IS 250C vs. 2014 Lexus IS 350C Review

Comparison Review

The Lexus IS 250C offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Lexus IS 350C with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Lexus IS 250C and the Lexus IS 350C in the front seats.

The Lexus IS 250C will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Lexus IS 350C, making it more convenient to drive.

There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Lexus IS 250C will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Lexus IS 350C. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Lexus IS 250C and the Lexus IS 350C have similar Destination Charges.

The Lexus IS 250C is about the same width as the Lexus IS 350C. When looking at overall length, the Lexus IS 250C takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Lexus IS 350C.

The Lexus IS 250C has much less torque than the Lexus IS 350C, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

The Lexus IS 250C has about the same turning radius as the Lexus IS 350C, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

When it comes to horsepower, the Lexus IS 250C is significantly less powerful than the Lexus IS 350C. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Lexus IS 250C and the Lexus IS 350C. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Lexus IS 250C as you will in the Lexus IS 350C.

The Lexus IS 250C comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Lexus IS 350C.
