The Lexus IS 250 sedan, built by Toyota, has failed to win the highly regarded “Recommended” rating from Consumer Reports.
The publication cited numerous reasons for the low rating, including fuel-economy and handling.
Consumer reports stated that the vehicle is “neither sporty nor luxurious”, which surprised the reviewers because of Lexus’s track record. The reviewers said that the IS 250 had the “worst road test score posted by any Lexus sedan in recent memory”.
The Infiniti Q50 was also unable to acquire the “Recommended” rating. Although the car received the “Very Good” rating, Consumer Reports says it it delivers an “underwhelming driving experience”.
Consider the Following Cars while Shopping the Lexus IS 250:
Other cars have received positive reviews from Consumer Reports. These cars offer everything from driving comfort, exciting performance, and state-of-the-art-infotainment. Drivers in Iowa City and Cedar Rapids who are considering a Lexus IS 250 should look into these viable options.
The Cadillac ATS received positive feedback thanks to sporty handling and the powerful 3.6L engine. In the glowing video review, Consumer Reports used words like “fantastic” and “excellent” to describe the ATS.
The 2014 Impala became the first car from the Detroit Three (Ford, GM, Chrysler) to lead the sedan segment. A complete overhaul of exterior designs, interior features, and driving mechanics lead to the positive results.
The Buick LaCrosse is one of the most affordable and comfortable large cars on the road. U.S. News and World Report gave the car an 8.2 out of 10, while Edmunds.com liked the car’s available features, elegant ride, and “smooth, quiet ride.”
Kelley Blue Book, another reputable source for automotive information, gave a great review for the 2014 Kia Cadenza. The reviewer raved about the car’s design, comfortable ride, and richness of features.
These vehicles make great options to the Lexus IS 250, but you need to see for yourself. You can take a free test drive in any of these cars. Who knows, you might find that one of these vehicles is perfect for you.
