I know that the convertible version is ALWAYS heavier than the coupé or sedan version but 1825kg? The sedan IS250 is 1570 kg.

Why is it so heavy?

I only have two real seats so this answer your question :)

The TT is absolutely tiny. I can imagine you have a lot less options when it comes to interior or boot space. Coming back to the topic, the Lexus cab is not supposed to be a versatile family van and in order to save the sleek profile of the car they had to screw up bootspace. I quite like the IS and cab is looking good, but you can not get away from the fact that a Lexus cabrio and especially in red'n'white is a women's car. It just is. And this is not sexism - this is common sense.

I rarely use trunk I prefer putting stuff in the back seat, unless it's a snow shovel or something along those lines :)

Georg it may have a hidden storage area behind that beige vertical panel..... most hardtop convertibles are pretty shit for storage with the roof down. My M3 has a moderate amount of space under the roof (a medium suitcase) but you can't access it without putting the roof up again.

no girly car...as you see with open top there is no trunk left for shopping ... the roof construction of the Lexus IS convertible is a joke..
