Lexus IS250C makes world debut

Lexus IS 250C fq

The latest offering from Lexus the IS 250C has just made its world debut at the Paris Motor Show. Based on the IS sedan but missing two doors and a permanent roof, the new 250C is not without its charm but has had a mixed reception. Accused of having an ugly rear end and broken lines the IS 250C still has much to offer away from aesthetics. Its aluminum folding roof structure boasts the fastest three-part roof opening time of just 20 seconds. Through the compact packaging of its roof mechanism, the IS 250C has a large boot space, good rear seat access and can fit adults in the back comfortably.

Sharing the IS 250’s 153kW/208hp, 2.5 litre V6 powerplant and 6-speed automatic transmission, the new Lexus convertible has been created to have minimal wind turbulence when driving with the hard top stowed. On the inside, rear passengers have a set of rollover hoops there’s a 12-speaker Mark Levinson sound system and a speed sensitive climate control system that will boost the heat during open air driving. The IS 250C is a smart car, but convertible drivers care about one thing above all others and that’s how they look.
