Found out this is a picture of the F Sport, the regular is250 looks sharp. Here's the review http://www.autoweek.com/article/20130325/carreviews/130329882

Seriously you guys. I think it looks sharp. You can have your Mustangs and Corvettes.
Brian Snyder Jan 16, 2013
Ugly. I was excited about buying a new IS this year, but now I'm considering getting a used one or another car.
Ray Liu Jan 16, 2013
Looks way worse than lf lc concept
Darryle Moody Jan 16, 2013

Just saw this car in person today, it's UGLY! Looks cheap and lines are a mess. The lot was full of them and not a single person (besides me) was near them. The sales guy seemed surprised we were interested, that's not good.

Where does the front license plate go? I drive in San Diego and the cops around here will pull me over without one.
Herbert Rodriguez Feb 01, 2013
I love it...everything about it
Peter Mark Gacek Jan 17, 2013
The wheels don't fit the proportions that's what's wrong
Martin Rosenberg Jan 17, 2013
The taillights are pretty nice, but the headlights are terrible. Too much going on. And it's proportions from the side are terrible. Disapproval. I vote for 3 series
Zac D'Anna Jan 17, 2013
They stole nikes swoosh
Christopher LikeaBoss Reber Jan 16, 2013
This is seriously one of the most aggressive front ends I've seen on a sedan. I love everything about it!
Jacob Burford Jan 16, 2013
Take that stupid grill out of my face!
Dave Rain Jan 16, 2013
Reminds me of when someone pinches your cheeks together, and your lips poke out.
Dave Rain Jan 16, 2013
Try again.
Paul Smolin Jan 16, 2013
Looks ugly reminds me of star-track
Jim Nguyen Jan 16, 2013
I wanna see this car in black :)
Zaire Wilkins Jan 16, 2013
Atleast this car dosent look boring anymore
Ashton Summers Jan 16, 2013
I think Lexus went with this design because they were tired of seeing their cars clogging the car parks of golf clubs around the world. Way to go!
Blythe Balchaitis Jan 16, 2013
I'll take the q50
Zaire Wilkins Jan 16, 2013
To me i feel like the 2009 maxima started the bold designs for everyday cars
Pablo Herasme Jan 16, 2013
I gatta say lexus really stepped up
Garrick Rainey Jan 16, 2013
The tail lights aren't cutting it for me. The front, I like. I'll just have to see it in person to make a valid judgement.
Jacob Lerklint Jan 16, 2013
Why are they showing the f-sport? I want to see the regular one
Jason Brown Jan 16, 2013
Love the direction they are taking.
Darian Vorlick Jan 16, 2013
Ugh. Far cry from what the Altezza started from. Not liking it at all.
David Guerrero Jan 16, 2013
Love the front, not fully liking the rear. 9/10. Would buy ISF version if had the money.
Dylan Bruder Jan 16, 2013
Odd headlights
Tara Fitria Jan 16, 2013
Like dirt, I'm diggin it.
Matt Piccolo Jan 16, 2013
I like this a lot! Looks awesome
William Downs Jan 16, 2013
I like the grill alot, the headlights were a bold move and can still be great just make the gap smaller
Wyatt Gordon Jan 16, 2013
I like the Grille alot, but Im torn on those nike-swoosh lights...
Mohammed Shamma Jan 16, 2013
I think the huge grill is the most special and unique part.
Jack Howard Jan 16, 2013
Hmmm I don't know about this. The grill is huge
Description: The 2014 Lexus IS will be available in rear- and all-wheel drive and with 2.5-liter V6 and 3.5-liter V6 units. An IS300h hybrid model was also at the reveal, odd given it won't be coming statesid...

That V6 with 306 hp is about to be 7 years old

The Lexus IS Nike Edition!! Coming to showrooms soon, just do it!! The "Air max" edition will be out later once Lexus masters running on air!! Lol
Pablo Herasme Jan 16, 2013
Somebody give the car more rear fender cuz from this angle it looks like a hatch
Shane Prasad Jan 16, 2013
Its ugly
Geoff Novak Jan 16, 2013
Interesting headlight design. Idk if i like this or not. I do like the gap tho. Uncommon design element
Dylan Bruder Jan 16, 2013
They look like they have leds in there
Jesse Jalapeno Jan 16, 2013
All jokes aside though.. I don't see much of a change.. Not a bad looking car in white
Wyatt Gordon Jan 16, 2013
Lol Mohammed noticed the Nike as well
Jesse Jalapeno Jan 16, 2013
@Mohammed, lol
Mohammed Suhail Jamil Jan 16, 2013
Maybe they're sponsored by NIKE!! (Looks suspiciously like a Nike sign) lol
Jack Howard Jan 16, 2013
Yeah that does look weird
Aaron Sparks Jan 16, 2013
Why have a gap between the LEDs and headlights? Looks cheap.

We can all say we're disappointed in Lexus, but can we just focus on the actual car? I think it looks great regardless of how similar it looks to the previous model. You show this car to any average joe person and they'll say this car looks great.
Peter Mark Gacek Jan 17, 2013
Thus car needs 19 inch wheels!
Jason Brown Jan 17, 2013
Edmond did you even read my comments?
Scuttle Buttocks Jan 17, 2013
Something's not right with the end of this car
Edmond Gebara Jan 17, 2013
Jason, with all due respect there's absolutely no truth to anything you've said. The Japanese designs of late (think Lexus and Infiniti) are based on a much bolder design approach, whereas Germans tend to evolve and enhance.
Dave Rain Jan 16, 2013
Taillight fail
Pablo Herasme Jan 16, 2013
That escalated quickly
Jason Brown Jan 16, 2013
The new BMW design is so fantastic and bold. But when Lexus does it to even more extreme, people say it looks the same...
Jason Brown Jan 16, 2013
That's what they are hoping to do, implement the new design language to make the brand more uniform. The same trend the German rivals have been doing. I think it ridiculous when BMW changes a very small aspect of their design and many people say
Aaron Sparks Jan 16, 2013
I agree Justin, this car has more of a makeover look than a redesign. The doors and greenhouse look exactly like the previous generation. The front looks exactly like the GS and LS and holy crap don't even get me started on the rear of this car.
Justin Johnson Jan 16, 2013
I am so disappointed. The car looks exactly the same as the outgoing model but with a new front and rear end. No wonder it's the same engines, I bet that's the same chassis
Peter Mark Gacek Jan 17, 2013
Dave have you seen "real" Italian cars? Haha just kidding but seriously fiat made some ugly @$$ cars that I saw and drove way too many of in Sicily. Absolutely horrible. However, in my opinion Alfa Romeo makes the most beautiful entry level cars.ever
Dave Rain Jan 16, 2013
The Italians do style so much better. This looks.....forced
Cindy Ngo Jan 16, 2013
Looks different
Roberto Maldonado Jan 16, 2013
I see the joker's smile in the taillights. IDK that's just the first thing that came to my mind.
Geoff Novak Jan 16, 2013
Rear end is perfect
Chris Bullock Jan 16, 2013
Looks really good, just wish they cut off the lights before they went down the side of the car...
David Guerrero Jan 16, 2013
I love the car, just have to get used to it
Matt Piccolo Jan 16, 2013
I like the lights. They give the car an aggressive look
Wyatt Gordon Jan 16, 2013
...I kind of like the lights
Chris Redfield Jan 16, 2013
From this angle I see some older tsx styling
Aaron Sparks Jan 16, 2013
I'm sorry but those rear lights... Something only the Japanese could love.
Jack Howard Jan 16, 2013
It reminds of a Kia.
尤品敦 Jan 16, 2013
That tail light is disgusting
Sam Shikora Jan 22, 2013
Put on gs taillights and you've got Megan fox as a car
John Patten Jan 16, 2013
Haha tino
Tino Domingue Jan 16, 2013
The back reminds me of Brock's face from Pokemon >_<
Jakub Migalski Jan 16, 2013
What is Lexus thinking omg
Jakub Migalski Jan 16, 2013
I see a tsx from this angle.
Dave Rain Jan 16, 2013
Idk, I like the new Acuras interior better.
Brendan Crawford Jan 16, 2013
Putting the rpm gauge of a $375,000 super car in a $45,000 luxury street car! Badabababa, I'm lovin it!
Dan Marino Jan 16, 2013
I like the placement of the cup holders. No where near the shifter and just out of the way.
Matt Piccolo Jan 16, 2013
Love the tach!
Mohammed Shamma Jan 16, 2013
Agree. So much of german quality
Gurjit Singh Jan 16, 2013
interior is the best part of this car
