The Lexus IS is a compact saloon that offers an excellent ride as well is high reliability levels. The hybrid version is particularly cheap to run and the ride in all models is comfortable.
The IS has a choice of two engines; a turbocharged petrol unit and a petrol-electric hybrid. Unusually, there are no diesel engines available. With the hybrid version, the IS 300h, the IS features a 2.5 litre petrol engine which will return around 66mpg with emissions of 97g/km and can run on electric power alone. The 200t petrol option is a 2.5 litre turbocharged unit that will return 39 mpg with emissions of 167g/km. Both engines are good performers and the CVT automatic transmission works well.
If you thought hybrid cars were dull and poor performers, then be prepared to think again with the Lexus IS - a car that takes efficient hybrids to a new level. Lexus has done a sterling job in designing this all-new vehicle which is a strong contender for anyone thinking of buying a Mercedes or BMW. The interior, particularly, is well-designed and made of quality materials to give a true premium feel. Lexus say is that the batteries in its hybrid vehicle have been designed to last for the lifetime of the car, which is reassuring to know.
With its sporty and distinctive design, the IS also has improved steering that is accurate and the suspension system helps to make the car agile and fun to drive. Anyone thinking of buying the IS will find a car that is reliable and a good performer, Lexus is one of the best car makers around with a range of cars that are hard to beat in the reliability stakes.
Get behind the wheel of the IS and drivers will find a vehicle that is an excellent performer in urban environments and also out on the motorway where its performance impresses. It's also very quiet car at speed. In addition, there's also more space on board the revamped IS which means that adults can be carried in comfort over long journeys and arrive at their destination feeling relaxed.
Along with its excellent build quality, Lexus also supplies lots of equipment the standard and in the IS the list includes keyless entry, cruise control, dual zone climate control and the firm's media display while other models come with satnav.
