There is way too much to love about the sexy new Lexus IS Convertible… Bi-Xenon headlamps, LED taillights, an Adaptive Front Lighting System, dual-zone climate control, iPod connectivity, powered by a 3.5- or 2.5-Liter V6 producing 306 or 204 hp.

A drive in the 2010 Lexus IS 350C hardtop convertible is like a weekend at some fancy golf resort, the kind you read about in that magazine you get when you’re flying business class. You know, the whole thing with a hotel that looks like a Tuscan villa, only it’s about the size of a convention center, and it’s got the ocean view, a pool that you could water-ski on, and of course the championship-grade golf course.

When the top is down, sunlight floods the IS C’s cabin and you’re overcome with a sense of well-being, so different from the wretched life you lead locked away in the office during the week. When the top is up, you’re in a buttoned-up coupe, holding in your hands a finely crafted machine that can take you to a great steak dinner with effortless speed.

All the while, you’ve got music, a navigation guide to the local sites and a temperature-controlled environment. Like an efficient staff at a resort hotel, the 2010 Lexus IS 350C brings you anything and everything you need, and neither a moment too soon nor too late.

You’ve pretty much got everything going for you here that you’d find in a resort hotel, except for the cutesy soaps and that big, white terrycloth robe.
