5: Lexus IS250
The Lexus automotive division of Toyota had a few hits in the 1990s. One of the breakout hits for the brand was the IS250. This was an interesting sport sedan imported from overseas. The styling was ahead of its time, and the small stature of the car made it a great track car. Its driving characteristics were different than other Lexus models at the time, and the styling was attractive (via Cars Guide).
For a short period, there was also a wagon version of the Lexus. The IS250 is still a popular choice among enthusiasts today. The car offers a lot of bang for the buck, and you can still find them for a reasonable price. Lexus has had many unique offerings over the years, but the original IS250 has held the test of time.
