The 2017 Lexus IS 200t F Sport is a pretty small luxury sports sedan. The car gives an exquisite feeling and it is a very special experience for the driver too. It totally justifies the price that you pay for the vehicle.

The car takes around 7 seconds to zoom from 0-60-mph. This is a bit slower. But we should also remember that this is tested against a weight of 3,783 pounds. Also, the IS 200t offers only the rear wheel drive.

The IS 200T has a stylish interior. It has a black headliner which is extraordinarily smooth. The car has thick steering wheels. The analog clock in the dash looks perfect and the car also has a 10.3-inch screen that is placed at the top of the dash. The 2017 Lexus IS 200t F Sport has a small, mouselike controller used to navigate what's displayed on that large screen which is not very impressive, reported Motor Trend.

The IS does not offer Apple CarPlay or Android Auto. It has a lot of standard equipment which includes a suite of active safety tech. It has a lane departure mitigation system and a pre-collision system that can apply the brakes if an obstacle ahead is sensed.

The cruise controls are adaptive and are a part of the package. However, this will not function in stop-and-go traffic. Everyday city commute will be difficult with this. 2017 Lexus IS 200t F Sport also includes LED headlights and hands-free keyless access.

The Lexus' eight-speed automatic supports a nice relaxed drive. If the Eco or Sports mode has to be activated, a silver disc on the center console has to be rotated.

The 2017 Lexus IS 200t F Sport can be called as a sports car but it does not live up to the standards of other sports cars. However, the car does not offer a competitive price. The customers might opt for more spacious offers. It is expected that the refreshed 2017 IS 200T lives up to the reputation of also providing the luxury at its best.
