2013 Lexus IS unveiled

Thought people might find this interesting as it's a direct competitor to the F30.

2013 Lexus IS unveiled

Quite like the rear view...

...but front view is grotesque IMHO!

So, anyone tempted?

No diesel though I hear, they are sticking to hybrid. I've never really liked any of the cars Lexus produced (I've nothing against the brand), maybe this one will be an improvement.

Just don't get the front at all, when last IS came out I test drove and just did not like this may well be better in flesh

I have had 3 new Lexus cars, none have lived up to expectation and MPG horrendous (if thats what you deem important), this coupled to an annual or 10K miles service at high cost put it on the "do not want" list for me.
The GS450 was supposed to be sporty JOKE.
Live for now, life is too short.
