The Lexus does provide the driver with 4 drive modes in the F sport, tantilising Sport Plus mode.

What the tantilising Sport Plus mode does is that it sharpens up the throttle response,
"turns the transmission into an aggressive, ready-to-go unit that holds off on auto upchanging, and tightens the electric steering. In this mode you can really enjoy yourself on a nice road. More so if you use the paddle shifters. The actual gear changes, specifically, are quicker than a click of the fingers, both up and down."

2016 Lexus IS 200t F Sport – THE VERDICT

Our expectations were high for this one, but only because the IS is such a great little drive. In 200t form it isn’t as quick as you might expect. However, as a replacement for the thirsty IS 250, which is a luxurious mid-size sedan with sporty undertones, the IS 200t is the perfect evolution and one of our favourite mid-size premium sedans.

PROS:
– Most powerful entry model in the class
– Exceptional handling and sweet steering
– Intimate cabin and driving position
– Good turning circle
– Value (no big options list)

CONS:
– Cabin will be tight for some
– Strange power delivery; some turbo/transmission-lag
– Not quicker than old IS 250, despite extra power (better overall performance and torque)
