2014 Lexus IS 250 fails to get the “Recommended” rating from Consumer Reports

Article by Christian A., on October 22, 2013

Although the 2014 Lexus IS 250 sedan is a beautiful car in our opinion and we do like it a lot, it appears that Consumper Reports magazine managed to find some issues with it regarding fuel economy and handling. Priced from $36,860 including destination and handling taxes, the 2014 Lexus IS 250 is, according to Consumer Reports, neither sporty or luxurious and has the worst road test score posted by any Lexus sedan in the recent memory.

Regarding the handling, Consumer Reports says that it is short on finesse and the road noise is elevated. The magazine tested the model equipped with the 2.5-liter V6 engine rated at 204 hp.

Brian Lyons, a Toyota spokesman, told the reporters from Automotive News that the company will discuss with Consumer Reports in order to get more direct feedback on their experience with the car.

For those who don’t know, Honda also had a problem with the new Civic Sedan, but managed to improve its score and get the “Recommended” status from Consumer Reports. Infiniti Q50 also failed to receive the “Recommended” rating.
