      What delay are these guys talking about? 2:50-3:00 The car shifts pretty damn fast if anything. Must be spoiled by dual clutches...

      Wow, shift speed alone makes me not want one anymore. “Sporty” cars are meant to be responsive and this isn’t at all

      Im sure it will be smooth! I am currently driving a CLA250 and that car will crash on every bump but im used to it. I just have 2 more questions haha. How is fuel economy for you? And does the rear view camera get wet from the rain to point you cannot use it?

      First, I ended up buying it. :) Second, it is the F Sport, so the suspension is firm, but compared to your average mainstream sedan, it will still ride better over most surfaces due to the independent rear suspension. I'd say the overall ride is pretty smooth - it's a comfortable car, but not a limo.

      I test drove a '16' IS 300 F Sport yesterday, and I think this is not trying to be fast first. I think it feels more like they focused on making the car handle well, have good steering (with actual feedback!), and yet still be very comfortable. From the seat of the pants it felt like it had good power when I was merging, though I didn't get to really step on it since the guy from the dealership already seemed like he didn't want me to even put it in Sport +... Either way, to me the test drive changed a lot of things - I can sacrifice a couple tenths to 60 if there are lots of other things to like about a car.

      As someone who's still rather young (still in University), this is one of those rare cars I think looks better in its stock form than with the Sport package. Most of the time, I prefer a car's sport pack with its aero tweaks, bigger brakes & suspension upgrades, but I felt the F-sport IS is trying TOO hard to be aggressive. The F-sport grill is very ugly IMO & the LFA-styled gauges are cool but feel gimmicky.

      On the other hand, I would love to have an IS350 with the Luxury package. It looks aggressive enough for me and after driving the IS250 Premium I thoroughly enjoyed the ride & luxury touches.

      I'm far from crazy, but the 'predator' grill is just too much. I wished Lexus put the GS F-sport grill on the IS; that one looks very tastefully done.

      Also I decided to drop by Infiniti today and tested a Q50S. This sport model looks much better than the luxury-oriented Q50; aggressive without being too alien.

      @Trades46 I love the F sport aggressive and bold look. It's unique and different. It's a risk Lexus took. Look at their older models, they never had a sporty feel. Lexus now tried to get the attention of younger customers so they needed to make a car that look sporty and they succeeded. You've got to be crazy if you think the original IS looks better than the IS f sport.

      Nice video, but some dialogue would be great next time. Overall, I love the Lexus and the reliability is unmatched. I'll probably hang on to mine for a few years. Next vehicle is going to be a BMW F80.

      What I don't like about Lexus' are there interior materials that resembles 1990s and earlier 2000s corollas and camry interior. It looks so freakin cheap. Like the Transmission lever with the PRND, the CD player, the clock, air vents looks like some 1990s early 2000s toyota corolla. Ewww I would not waste my money on a Lexus for that kind of ergonomics and cheap material.

      @jetliigor
      Yeah BMW is falling behind with their interiors. Aside from the 6, everything looks a bit dull. Just look at the 3 series interior. If you get it in black and really just look at it, it's boring, not very stylish. You've got to dress it up in rich colors and opt for the full leather dashboard package to get it to look interesting but that's not cheap.

      @MatTZI014 I disagree completely. I love everything about the car except for the tail light design shape. I think Lexus needed to attract a younger audience and they succeeded with the F sport. The current Lexus's look nothing like those from 20 years ago. I think you're confusing interior design of Lexus with BMW. BMW has cheap looking interior design with their old looking dashboards.
