More pictures of the 2014 Lexus IS




It's not a nightmare, but I still think it looks like it's trying too hard.
Plus, the interior doesn't seem nearly as luxurious as the all new Infiniti Q50.

We'll see...

I like the exterior, minus the Nike Swoosh in each headlamp. Now that hideous interior says welcome back to the 80s. Awful.

The Q50 rocks. Even the mouth looks good with better photos. The IS is definitely an improvement over the existing model, although they have "overlined" the darn thing. I they have not made it bigger, it is a mistake.

The new grille is horrendous and looks like it added too much front overhang.

This was the color to show from the get go. Q50 still horrible, well besides for interior of course

I think it looks fantastic.

The glass says "Chevy Cavalier"
The dash says "Avalon"
The tail lighs say "VW/Audi/BMW/Kia/Acura"
But the GRILL, that could ONLY be a 2014 Infinity M !

So I'm guessing $15k-$25k?

This looks a million times better than the F-Sport. It is now actually an attractive vehicle.

Please stop talking.

There is NOTHING Cavalier about the greenhouse, and the dash looks nothing like an Avalon either the current or past models. Weird that you mention five brands for the tail lamps.

You've proven that you know absolutely nothing.

So you and I have differents tastes in Automotive Style.

That's what makes the world INTERRESTING.

...unlike this latest Corolla iteration from Lexus.

There's a lot of lumpy plastic craziness going on with the front of what's otherwise a pretty conventional looking design. As with all Lexus currently (LFA excluded) they have kept the unibody and front wings very plain, and the soft plastic/vinyl bits are creased and aggressive. It's easy to manufacture this way, and also easier to quickly implement mid-cycle updates. But the result here is a very incoherent and horsey looking design.

Infiniti Q50, better looking....better car...period!

The taillights are atrocious! From the side profile, as well as certain angles, It looks like it was melting, giving it a sagging look.
