Love or hate the Predator-mouthed grille, there’s no disputing that the IS has BMW in its sights. Luxurious, comfortable, and capable of shredding twisty roads, this is one sweet sports sedan. That’s especially true of the rear-drive IS 350 F Sport, with a 306-horsepower, 3.5-liter V-6 and an 8-speed automatic transmission. (The starter IS 250 has a 204-horsepower, 2.5-liter V-6 but is still fun.) [$35,950 (IS 250)/$41,700 (IS 350 AWD); lexus.com]
