Ride & Handling

Review-OnRoad The IS turns in swiftly, grips keenly and is unfazed by mid-corner bumps. It’s a shame, then, that the steering doesn’t offer more feedback and that the pay-off for impressive control over rollercoaster roads is a stiff and unsettled feel around town and on the motorway - especially on the F-Sport models with their lower suspension. These limitations also apply to the IS-F.
