2009 Lexus IS Seat Room and Comfort: Cons
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2010 4dr Sedan 204-horsepower 2.5L V6
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
Lousey seats: uncomfortable and build is cheap and not conforming to human posture. But, seems last several years most cars have lousey, cheap and uncomfortable seats. see full Lexus IS review
2010 4dr Sedan 204-horsepower 2.5L V6
6-speed shiftable automatic RWD
Legroom felt narrow for passenger over tranny tunnel. see full Lexus IS review
2009 4dr Sedan 204-horsepower 2.5L V6
6-speed shiftable automatic RWD
Yeah, the back is small but still big enough to handle for the poor rear seat passengers. see full Lexus IS review
2009 4dr Sedan 306-horsepower 3.5L V6
6-speed shiftable automatic RWD
This is a small car. Interior seating is comfortable but tight. Unless the driver is very short, forget about the back seat. see full Lexus IS review
2009 4dr Sedan 306-horsepower 3.5L V6
6-speed shiftable automatic RWD
Don't buy this car if you ever plan on carrying four adults. see full Lexus IS review
2009 4dr Sedan 204-horsepower 2.5L V6
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
Cramped rear seat. Minimal knee and leg room when there is a front driver/passenger. Minimal room for the toddler when sitting in a car seat. Seats 2 small kids at best. see full Lexus IS review
2008 4dr Sedan 204-horsepower 2.5L V6
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
The rear seats are very comfortable, but TINY. see full Lexus IS review
2008 4dr Sedan 204-horsepower 2.5L V6
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
Small rear seat. More like a coupe with 4 doors. see full Lexus IS review
2008 4dr Sedan 416-horsepower 5.0L V8
8-speed shiftable automatic RWD
Not enough rear legroom. see full Lexus IS review
2008 4dr Sedan 306-horsepower 3.5L V6
6-speed shiftable automatic RWD
The rear seat really is too small for adults. The front seats have to be moved forward for adults to sit in the back. see full Lexus IS review
