    The S is an automotive tech juggernaut, featuring every latest advance Mercedes-Benz Lexus IS Links. Both models also receive new suspension and steering tuning updates. Fairly tight in back since I need my seat back a bit. The Nav is a bit complicated, but loaded with features.

    The Good Slinky good looks. Quieter than a sleeping mouse. Rear seat not commodious. The Bottom Line What the IS lacks in badge snobbery, it makes up for in good looks, rock-solid quality, neat handling and serenity enough to becalm a frazzled monk. While stuffed with tech, it isn't quite as up-to-date as we'd have liked. Visit manufacturer site for details. When Lexus launched the second-generation IS many moons ago, we cooed softly at the company's new baby.

    Despite the fact that the company was still targeting Germany's finest small sedans -- think Mercedes-Benz C-Class, Audi A4 and BMW 3-series -- the Japanese upstart was no longer prepared to ape them aesthetically.

    With the second-gen IS, Lexus has wrapped its small rear-wheel drive sedan in a body that nicely mixes hard-shouldered aggression with elegance. Dare we say it? The upstart has upstaged the old hands at producing a car whose looks scream sportiness, sophistication and luxury in the same breath. For this year's mild facelift, Lexus has tweaked the bumpers, tail-lights and added turn indicators to the auto-folding door mirrors.

    There's also a new set of inch alloy wheels, which, to our eyes, is probably the least successful part of the makeover. Although this writer seemed to be the lone dissenting voice regarding our review car's powder blue paint scheme, we were nonetheless impressed by the richness of the paint. As always the panel gaps are extraordinarily precise and the doors are not only pleasantly weighty but shut with a pleasing ker-thunk.

    Brilliant "optitron" lighting is easy on the eye. Click through for our photo gallery. On the inside, the changes are as difficult to spot. Prizes go to anyone who notices that the buttons surrounding the touchscreen entertainment system have lost their raised centres.

    Lexus' signature "optitron" instrument lighting is equal parts gorgeous and clear. Pity then that its brilliance clashes with the various shades of Corolla green lighting used on buttons and switches.

    Combine these faults together and the result is a cabin that, while functional and pleasing, lacks a certain something. That said, our review vehicle, with its plush white leather seats, contrasting black stitching and black leather armrests was easy on both the eye and the body, providing ample grip for a bit of enthusiastic driving while still providing a handy impersonation of a comfy sofa.

    Finding the correct seating position shouldn't be too difficult with both front pews, as well as the steering wheel, featuring electric adjustment and three memory settings.

    Tall passengers sitting in the rear seats may be a little less impressed. The bench itself is shapely, but leg space is on the tight side even when the IS is packed full of vertically challenged individuals. And while the sloping roof line contributes greatly to the car's athletic and vaguely coupe-esque looks, it means that six-foot and above individuals will bump and scrape their heads against the ceiling.
