Lexus’s upcoming IS model promises to bring more performance and a higher level of driver satisfaction, as we can see from Autoblog’s complete review of the IS 350 F-Sport on the test track.

At first glance, you can clearly see that the automaker got obsessed with the IS’ styling, having the new spindle design at the front, sharp edged tail and headlamps, as well as a side skirts whose lines continues flowing upwards into the rear bumper and taillights.

While the interior won’t leave everybody speechless, it's till fashionable and loaded with technology, the F-Sport model having front bucket seats, NuLuxe materials and an instrument cluster borrowed from the sedan’s supercar brother, the Lexus LF-A.

On the track, the Lexus IS 350 F-Sport makes good use if its new eight-speed transmission, a stiffer body structure and a revised steering system, being able to beat its direct BMW 335i rival as well as the Mercedes C-Class opponent.
