Default Should i buy the Lexus IS250 or IS350?

im looking into buy a pre-owned Lexus IS, just can't decide which one. i know that IS350 has about 100 more hp, but the thing is how much more gasoline does it use compared to IS250? either car i get, i'll be filling it up with Premium gas so if someone can tell me, how much gas would each car would cost to fill up? so annually how much more would i be paying for gas if i got IS350 rather then IS250?

I can help you with this. The difference between the 350 and 250 is the engine. The 250 has a 2.5L 204 HP V6 and the 350 has a 3.5L V6 with 305 HP.If it's fuel economy you want, go with the 2.5. If you want more power and the option of all wheel drive, go with the 3.5. If you're hardcore and wanna intimidate the loser in the Camaro at the stoplight, get the IS F. That car has a 5.0L 417 HP V8 if you want some real fun.

dont waste your money on a Lexus trust me, couple of friends did and one got broken and other burns gas like a 1960s mustangs, they are just an over priced toyotas thats all. im not saying this cuz i hate lexus im just saying the truth, if you want a pre-owned premium luxury car either buy mercedes or infiniti. go with the infiniti for better gas milage

Well, you won't be paying much more for gas on an IS350 instead of an IS250. Here is how to decide which one you should get depeding on which on has the lower mileage. I would test drive the IS250 first, and if it doesn't have enough power for you, get the IS350.
