Lexus IS 350 F SPORT Wins Road & Track Sports Sedan Comparison

Lexus Road & Track Comparison

Road & Track has compared the Lexus IS350 F SPORT, BMW 335i, Cadillac ATS V6, and the Infiniti Q50 — here’s the result:

From the moment we sunk into the black-on-black interior, we were struck by how determinedly idiosyncratic the IS 350 seems. There are deep seats with handsome stitching set in an angular collection of black plastics and tech-happy switchgear. The whole look is kind of a Nineties vision of the 2010s—not retro, but Yesterday’s Future Today.

The Infiniti has gadgets to “help” you, the BMW has motor and hereditary manners, and the Caddy is a milled ingot of doubly refined handling. But the Lexus puts it all together better and lets you enjoy it more, for less money—even optioned to the gills—than anything else here.

For the second time since starting this site, I published the same story twice! http://lexusenthusiast.com/2013/09/16/road-track-comparison-lexus-is-350-f-sport-vs-bmw-335i-cadillac-ats-infiniti-q50-s/ Oh well, mistakes happen. :-)

LOL, I saw the September date, but assumed it was 2014. By the time I finished the article, I noticed the YEAR. Was a great re-read and a reminder of how fortunate we are with the IS!

    Yeah was great and we went with both IS and RX F-Sports! We'll be there for the next one most definitely! Now with your CT F-Sport and PJ's invitation, you definitely qualify! :)
