    Points are earned back in the boot, which at litres is equivalent to that in the Mercedes and the BMW. However, the F Sport also looks much better outside, with lovely inch wheels and a more muscular stance. Lexus boosted the safety offering in the IS when it updated the looks. Your ears will fizz with joy.

    To do it and succeed, you need a clear point of difference. A total driver focus. With athletic lines, genuinely good looks and compelling driving dynamics, the IS is underrated among small premium sedans. Add in the further F Sport package, and the looks get a much needed boost too, with F Sport adding great-looking wheels and more aggression to the front and rear end.

    With just the right amount of creases, handsome graphite-grey wheels and the unique Nike-style tick in the LED running lights, the IS stands out from the other premium sedans, most of which are pretty conservative. Compared to a similarly-priced Mercedes C, the Lexus offers far more kit for the money.

    For , the IS carries on with three engines. The range kicks off with the ISt, a turbo four-cylinder petrol making kW and Nm. You expect good performance from the athletic lines of the IS, and the IS delivers.

    While the steering feels video-game fast at first, you quickly get used to it and the handling is predictable: All of those positives are only heightened by complementing the car with the V6 engine, giving extra urge for a good blast down a country road where the IS comes alive. You get that with a 3 Series or C-Class, too — though not the Audi A4 — and rear-drive is the way these luxury sports sedans work best. With the front wheels left to do their job steering, you get a sense of being pushed around bends by the IS as the rear wheels move the car forward.

    The ISt has more torque available in town or off-the-line — you do need to sink the boot into the IS more at slower speeds — but it never feels underdone, and you enjoy motivating the car. The engine sounds good and is really smooth. The eight-speed automatic is good enough, usually slipping from ratio to ratio without you noticing, but on a really fast blast you long for the snappier shifts you can get from a double-clutch automatic or a ZF-built transmission.

    Only slightly wooden brake feel and an over-invasive traction control system stop the driver from feeling truly fluid with the car. There are ten airbags aboard plus a tyre pressure monitoring system.

    Lexus boosted the safety offering in the IS when it updated the looks. AEB, forward collision warning, active radar cruise control, and lane keep assist are all now standard. Upgrading from the base model IS — the Luxury — to the F Sport upgrades the seats to more tightly bolstered versions. The leather trim feels soft and expensive — and the seats themselves are comfortable to sit in, at least around town and for shorter drives.

    However, for two taller drivers who tested two IS grades, the seats caused an ache on longer drives. The problem was identified as the back bolstering. The passenger entirely misses a back bolster which is also an issue.

    What deserves real credit is the overall shape of the seat, the low hip point and the driving position, which is very low and sporty. Plus, we like that even a base model IS has both heated and cooled seats — this is a highly relevant feature in Australia that the German brands should learn from.
