Overview of 2012 Lexus IS 250 Base By R. Feeman
The Lexus IS 250 Base compact luxury sedan receives new Nebula Gray Pearl and Fire Agate Pearl exterior colors for 2012, but otherwise remains unchanged. Exterior features include a classic front end and grille, a sculpted hood, aerodynamic side lower body panels, LED taillights and dual chrome exhaust pipes, as well as 17-inch wheels. An available F Sport Package adds 18-inch wheels, a sport-tuned suspension and a number of exterior upgrades, including a unique grille and front-lip and rear-deck spoilers. Power comes from a 2.5-liter V6 engine, which delivers 204 hp and 185 lb-ft of torque. The V6 links to either a 6-speed manual transmission or an optional 6-speed automatic with available paddle shifters. Fuel economy numbers check in at 19/28 mpg with the manual transmission and 21/30 with the automatic.
Inside its plush cabin, the IS 250 Base receives such luxury-oriented features as leather upholstery, 10-way power-adjustable front seats and a power tilt/slide moonroof. Black metallic trim throughout the cabin also lends an upscale feel. The leather-wrapped tilt/telescopic steering wheel features audio, cruise, phone and display controls, while the center console has a USB port and audio auxiliary input jack. Lexus also includes a 13-speaker, 194-watt Premium Audio System with a 6-CD changer, Bluetooth, automatic sound leveling, music streaming and SiriusXM satellite radio. Dual-zone automatic climate with rear-seat vents, push-button start, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, an illuminated entry system and power windows and door locks are among the other standard features. Safety features include 8 airbags, as well as the automaker's Vehicle Dynamics Integrated Management system, which integrates Vehicle Stability Control, traction control, braking and steering to help minimize loss of traction in a turn. Hill Start Assist, 4-wheel antilock brakes with electronic brakeforce distribution and brake assist, and Smart Stop Technology are also included.
This overview covers the Base trim only.
