Lexus IS

Price $42,950 – $53,300
Fuel consumption 7.6 – 12.2 L/100km
The Car Guide rating 69%(view ratings)
Redesigned for 2021, the Lexus IS boasts a slightly more expressive design than its predecessor, while handling has been improved in an attempt to match the big names from Germany. On the other hand, Lexus made no modifications to the engine lineup, so look for the same four-cylinder turbo and naturally aspirated V6, which are both less capable than the competition. The great thing about them, mind you, is that they continue to offer excellent reliability.
