Lexus hasn’t been shy in its pricing; the IS-F is pitched right between its rivals from Mercedes-AMG and BMW.

What does set the Lexus apart is that, typically, it wants for nothing in terms of standard equipment.

If the IS-F maintains Lexus’s traditional ownership traits – and there’s no reason to think that it shouldn’t – then running an IS-F should be a remarkably easy, fault-free and fuss-free experience.

All those pragmatic benefits come at a cost though. After just two years, the IS-F will have lost almost half of its value, despite having relative rarity on its side.
