Lexus has finally come up with a luxury vehicle that can go head to head with other cars in its segment. The 2012 Lexus IS F Sedan is one of the best high-performance Sedan ever manufactured by Lexus, and is on par with its leading competitors, although it drives in a completely different way. While some of the leading Sedan models are being criticized for being so bland when driven, the 2012 Lexus IS F is more sporty and fierce. Its impeccable performance and aggressive styling push to the top of best Sport Sedans for 2012. But unknown to some car aficionados, the Lexus IS F Sedan was not actually so promising when it was first launched 5 years ago. It was criticized for suffering from an excessively harsh suspension and such harshness resulted in an unimpressive performance for this luxurious Sedan. But Lexus did not give up - it has done numerous revisions to improve the IS F's suspension, and all the efforts paid off. Driving the 2012 Lexus IS F Sedan will not only give the driver utmost comfort, but also high confidence in any maneuver he/she chooses.

The recipe behind the IS F is simple - a powerful 5.0 liter V8 engine stuffed inside a lightweight but robust frame with a fully revamped suspension, combined with a plethora of luxurious features and add-ons. In a usual Lexus fashion, the IS F's interiors are flawlessly executed and it is fully equipped with a clean and sleek appearance that would make a long ride very comfortable and harmonious. Furthermore, the navigational controls of the Lexus IS F Sedan are extremely easy to operate, so whether you are an audiophile or a technophile, or perhaps, a La-Z Boy driver, the Lexus IS F is perfect for you.

The Lexus IS F is in close competition with its European counterparts, but given its superb performance, it's not surprising that it is currently the leading luxury vehicle in the automobile industry. The suspension improvements that the company has made are definitely a welcome improvement, for it is now the perfect vehicle to run on busy city streets as well as on freeways. Its steering wheel capability is more natural, giving you ease in maneuvering on curvy roads. Lexus indeed, has done such a phenomenal job with the Lexus IS F Sedan that it looked like it can drive smoothly on its own without any human intervention.
