2011 Lexus IS Review

It isn’t real performance unless it’s wielded with precision. The all new 2011 Lexus IS was designed to give exacting control of the road. At the heart of the IS 350 is a potent 3.5-liter V6 that churns out an incredible 306 horsepower and can go from 0 to 60 in 5.6 seconds. The IS 250 is swiftly propelled by a 2.5-liter V6 providing 204 horsepower. The available all wheel drive confidently tackles slick roads. The IS offers a range of interior luxuries and amenities. The driver and front passenger can set their own desired comfort level with dual zone climate control. The latest available Navigation System features a touch screen interface an advanced voice-command system and real time updates. The first of its kind sound-absorbing sun visor diminishes exterior noise and provides you with a quieter atmosphere. Smart Stop Technology automatically reduces engine power when the brake pedal is firmly applied. Plus a sophisticated network of sensors and airbags help protect you and your passengers in different types of frontal and side collisions. The 2011 Lexus IS rarely seen standing still.
