Lexus IS C ready to drive

The newest in Lexus’ line is functional and fashionable with the launch of their IS C.  This sporty sedan platform costs less than their other hardtop convertibles, but offers more than ever before.The convertible features a hardtop roof, seamlessly designed, and attractive to boot – perfect for those never-ending rainy days that our summer has seemed to be.

It includes, what they call, the “fastest retractable hardtop in its class”, which can open and close in about 20 seconds.

With the top up, trunk space is 550 litres, large enough packing in those bags that road trip, but with top down, it gets a little snug, with just enough room for, says Lexus, a golf bag – which for some might just be perfect.

Its panels are designed from lightweight aluminum and its equipped with either a a 2.5-litre V-6 (IS 250 C) or a 3.5-litre V-6 (IS 350C). The transmission choices includes a manual or six-speed automatic.

The IS 250C begins at $52,100 and the IS 350C at $60,400, undoubtedly competitively priced against high-end rivals BMW and Infiniti.
