For me it will depend on what the interior looks/feels like and how it drives.

My problem with the recent styling revolution that Lexus has done is that it is making the cars look much more performance based they really are. I have been underwhelmed at the lack of HP in my RX...

I also think that it is due to your other cars being larger, rather than the IS being too small. I went through 15 years in a Honda Prelude, Infiniti G35 Coupe, and Honda S2000, and never once...
