Car and Driver
This IS350 F Sport is a rock, the solid foundation we’ve been waiting for from the world’s largest car company, which has scrupulously avoided building a world-class sports sedan for its luxury division despite ample need.
This is a foundation on which even greater cars can be built, if Lexus so chooses. The steering is fast and direct. The brakes are unexpectedly strong and fade-resistant over VIR’s long course of torture, and the engine’s smooth power works in concert with the excellent transmission for seamless shifting. Whereas the old IS graduated magna cum laude from the school of snap-oversteer, this car’s behavior is entirely predictable, which lets you take it to its ragged edge of adhesion with confidence.
