Lexus IS250, IS300H and IS350 (XE30 3rd Generation)

Lexus IS

5 Pros

  1. Outstanding build quality, reliability and pretty decent looks as well
  2. Class leading 4 year warranty
  3. Well equipped interior that includes decent rear seat room, a big enough boot, standard sat nav and reversing camera
  4. Historically strong resale values
  5. The rear seats actually fold in the hybrid version (this is not normal)

5 Cons

  1. Grandpa? You be the judge
  2. All except the hybrid have very poor fuel efficiency
  3. Needs premium unleaded and some have complained about the gearbox slow
  4. The Audi A4, BMW 3 Series and Mercedes C-Class diesels probably feel a bit sportier than the hybrid IS
  5. You are probably risk-averse

Concluding personality type: Tokyo: Different from Europe yes, but still first world
