Why Not the 2002 Lexus IS?

Fuel economy

For a small, relatively modestly powered car, it gets poor economy. Corvettes and most Porsches get better economy.

Interior styling

A little cheap with hard plastic, but passable.

Rear seat room & comfort

Tiny; much smaller in the back - almost subcompact-sized.

Controls and instruments

A little cheap and plasticy, although clearly laid out. The nav setup is actually quite good.

Ride smoothness

Very rough over broken pavement, and unforgiving at times when a BMW or VW would be more graceful.

This review was originally a two-car comparison review. Read the other half here.
