is that LFA style cluster standard on the F sport? or is it an option for both?
It's only avaialble on F-Sport.
I notice in the video, the LFA cluster this time is showing everything in metric and Celsius. I assume this is on the US car.
I assume the car can change units in the GPS and climate controls as well? Maybe can demonstrate that on video?
So F-sport with red leather is not leather but Nuluxe and 10 way power seat.
Nice to see 2 USB ports
No USB color...wtf.....
Curb weight is pretty similar for IS 350 RWD
10 cubic foot trunk? No wonder they had to make those seats drop
Overall I like it but not blown away like I thought I would be on paper. Will have to drive it I guess.
No USB for us, apparently it wasn't a popular choice so they ended up axing it for the USA.
flip - whats the difference in real life between trunks of 2IS and 3IS? From pics I saw, 3IS looks bigger and deeper, and European specs are that it is actually bigger. So whats the difference between that and EPA?
2IS trunk capacity is 13 cubic feet. Some room had to get eaten up for the extra room in the backseat and folding seat feature and it got reduced to 10.8
What the hell Lexus? :mad: No USB, what the freaking hell!?! I am beginning to question their judgement, we are going to have 3 shades of silver and no USB?:confused: Hopefully they will reconsider this along with the stupid decision not to include fog lights on the f sport and put in that fake leather:thumbdn: Not so sure I am even interested in this car anymore...
Sorry had to vent, looking like I may just buy mine out of it's lease.
