I am in my car all the time. I work an hour away from home. I love how it drives, it's fun.

04/05/14-Smooth ride and feels like luxury for sure. Called Carmax in Columbia, SC and talked to Bernard Pollock 803-750-0856. He transferred this Lexus in for me after I looked at some options and it was there for me to look at and test drive that day as promised. Bernard Pollock had great conversational skills and I was very happy with our phone conversations. When I came in on Saturday Glenda McConneghey 803-750-0856 helped me and I test drove the Lexus IS 250 4 - door 2011. After looking at different options I went with this Lexus and did all the paperwork right there. Even got an estimate on my current car for trade in and sold the car to CarMax right then. I would definitely recommend this CarMax and these two individuals. The manager on duty that day also came by and talked to me and was very nice.
Great features, reliable, stylish car!
2014 Lexus IS 250Carrie T - Claremont, CA08/12/2016
This is the 2nd Lexus is250 I've owned. I can't get enough of it! I love the way it handles. I looked for 2 straight years for the right car, literally daily! I test drove every make imaginable from a Porsche to a Kia and kept coming back to the Lexus. I spent more than I had planned, but in the end I am very satisfied!
2014 Lexus IS-250 Overview
The 2014 Lexus IS-250 competes in a very competitive segment and succeeds at making a splash with a bold, new look designed for the model year. Its sharper driving dynamics and variety of feature packages, the third-generation Lexus IS keeps the same styling cues while improving upon its sporty style.
Features & Specs
The 2014 Lexus IS-250 has all of the features a buyer should expect in a modern vehicle, including Bluetooth connectivity, navigation options and power locks, windows and side mirrors. With a solid, flexible sound system and satellite radio access, the Lexus IS-250 has all the makings of a standard sports vehicle. The cabin is high-tech with real-time weather updates among many other cabin feature packages.
Design & Performance
Like many of its competitors, the 2014 Lexus IS-250 sports rear-wheel drive and prioritizes acceleration under the hood. The redesigned suspension delivers a driving experience with a smooth ride and superior handling. Different driving modes in the automatic transmission enable users to push their car to the limits when they need a more exciting ride, or, conversely, keep it steady and on track for daily commutes. Higher trims change the number for the IS-250 to the IS-350.
Powertrain & Engine
Under the hood, the 2014 Lexus IS-250 is powered by a 2.5L V6 engine and decent fuel efficiency as well. This engine is paired with a six-speed automatic transmission. Due to the many settings on the automatic transmission, drivers can decide between accelerating quickly or driving with a more controlled experience. The IS-350 has a stronger engine, with the option to boost up to a 3.5L V6 engine.
Body Style & Interior Comfort
The body of the Lexus IS-250 boasts a more aggressive silhouette in the 2014 model year. Interior updates for the 2014 Lexus IS-250 include an updated instrument panel and a revised climate control center. Otherwise, the cabin is relatively unchanged, if a bit more spacious than the previous generation.
Luxury cars come in all shapes and sizes, but they are all expected to look good and perform well. One advantage of buying a used luxury car is that you get the luxury look-and-feel that you want at a more affordable price.
