General info

1.Has fully independent suspension
Lexus IS 250C (2014)
This allows all four wheels to move up and down independently, providing a smoother ride when, for example, going over bumps in the road.
2.Has rear-wheel drive
Lexus IS 250C (2014)
Rear-wheel drive benefits from increased traction when accelerating, as the weight of the vehicle shifts to the rear over the drive wheels. The weight of the car is also more evenly distributed, resulting in improved handling.
3.drivetrain warranty (years)

6yrs

The drivetrain warranty covers parts of the car, such as the engine, transmission, driveshaft, etc. Typically longer than the basic warranty, it lasts for a certain number of years.
4.basic warranty (km)

80 000km

The basic warranty of a car covers all aspects other than parts which are subject to normal wear and tear, such as windscreen wipers and brake pads. It lasts either a certain number of years or amount of kilometres driven.
5.basic warranty (years)

4yrs

The basic warranty of a car covers all aspects other than parts which are subject to normal wear and tear, such as windscreen wipers and brake pads. It lasts either a certain number of years or amount of kilometres driven.
6.turn radius

10.2m

The turn radius indicates the smallest circular turn a car can make. With a smaller turn radius it is easier to perform a U-turn in one attempt instead of having to reverse back and forth in order to turn around.

Dimensions

1.weight

1.73t

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
2.maximum headroom (rear)

917mm

More headroom in the rear of the car makes for a more comfortable passenger experience, and is especially important for taller people. It is also useful if you are transporting cargo in the rear of the vehicle.
3.length

4.64m

We consider a shorter length better because a compact chassis is generally easier to maneuver.
4.width

1.8m

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.
5.height

1.42m

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
6.wheelbase

2.73m

The wheelbase is the distance between the center of the front and rear wheels. A longer wheelbase provides the car with more stability and a smoother ride (although a shorter wheelbase can provide more responsive handling).

Speed

1.top speed

211km/h

The fastest speed that the vehicle can reach.
2.acceleration time (0-100 km/h)

8.4s

The time it takes for the car to accelerate from 0-100 kilometres per hour.
3.coefficient of drag

0.29Cd

The coefficient of drag is one measurement of how well air travels around a vehicle. A lower value means it is more aerodynamic and the engine doesn't have to work as hard. It can result in faster speeds and lower fuel consumption.

Engine

1.maximum torque

185Nm

Torque is a measurement of an engine’s power, closely related to horsepower. More torque indicates a more powerful vehicle and is also a good indication of its acceleration.
2.horsepower

206hp

Horsepower is the most common unit for measuring the power of an engine.
3.fuel economy (combined)

9.8l/100 km

Fuel economy is a measurement of fuel efficiency, based on how far you can travel with a certain amount of petrol (gasoline). A higher fuel economy means the car will be cheaper to run.
4.fuel economy (highway)

7.8l/100 km

Fuel economy is a measurement of fuel efficiency, based on how far you can travel with a certain amount of petrol (gasoline). A lower fuel economy means the car will be cheaper to run.
5.number of cylinders

4

Although there are many aspects that determine the power, a higher number of cylinders is generally a good indication of the potential power of the engine.
6.fuel economy (city)

11.2l/100 km

Fuel economy is a measurement of fuel efficiency, based on how far you can travel with a certain amount of petrol (gasoline). A lower fuel economy means the car will be cheaper to run.

Features

1.Has ISOFIX/LATCH
Lexus IS 250C (2014)
ISOFIX (also known as LATCH) is a standard system of attachment points for child safety seats, allowing them to be fitted quickly and safely.
2.Has stolen vehicle tracking system
Lexus IS 250C (2014)
The vehicle has a tracking system that utilizes GPS, allowing you to locate it in case it is stolen.
3.Has smart key as standard
Lexus IS 250C (2014)
A smart key is a wireless key that offers several benefits over a traditional key. For example when you approach the car the doors will automatically unlock, and you can turn the engine on with the press of a button.
4.number of airbags

6

Airbags are designed to cushion occupants in the event of an impact. The standard number is around six, but some cars now incorporate additional ones, such as knee airbags, side airbags, and side curtain airbags.
5.USB ports

1

With more USB ports, you are able to connect more devices.
6.Has height-adjustable seat belts
Lexus IS 250C (2014)
Height-adjustable seat belts permit passengers of different sizes to move the seat belt up or down for improved comfort. They are also especially useful for increasing the safety of children.
