2012 Lexus IS 350

Already standing out from the pack with its stylish design, the Lexus IS 350 is a second time winner of the Vincentric Best Value in America award. Taking top honors over seven other vehicles in this segment, the IS 350 earned its victory with repair costs better than segment average, low depreciation, and ownership costs coming in over 2% lower than expected. The competition in this high-end segment included the second-place Audi A3 and other popular models from BMW, Volvo, and Mercedes-Benz.
