True LUXURY sport compact

by Stomas88 from Las Vegas, NV | September 06, 2019

If you’re looking for something that’ll treat you right with style, comfort, the feeing of quality and solidity as well as provide some sportiness through driving dynamics and handling, all while ensuring to be a perfect daily driver, this is it. The IS blends the right amounts of luxury, comfort and sportiness to be a responsible yet exciting choice. The 2.0L turbo could benefit from more power, especially from a stand-still, as the turbo definitely has noticeable lag but if you’re not looking to tear up the streets you’ll be glad you chose the IS. Larger more powerful engines are available in the lineup but you’ll sacrifice economy and weight, subsequently. Most buyers won’t need anything more than the 2.0 L. Value is relative as this is a luxury brand. The IS will deliver more value for the money in comparison to its luxury counterparts, but keep in mind, a comparable Camry or Accord will cost you less. If you prefer RWD and enjoy the perks and extra luxurious creature comforts of a true luxury brand, then that should be enough to validate choosing the IS over more conventional car brands.
