Lexus IS pricing revealed
The new IS’s bold design, featuring more aggressive styling and the car maker's signature grille, was revealed at the 2012 Detroit motor show.
The IS250 gets a 2.5-litre V6 petrol engine mated to a six-speed automatic gearbox, while the IS300h hybrid is powered by a 2.5-litre petrol engine and an electric motor with a combined power output of 217bhp. It's expected to offer average economy of 65mpg and sub-100g/km CO2 emissions.
All IS models get cruise control, climate control, digital radio, Bluetooth, keyless entry and alloy wheels.
Four trims are available: SE, Luxury, F Sport and Premier. Top-of-the-range Premier models get leather seats, sat-nav, rear-view camera and a Mark Levinson sound system.
The IS250 starts at £26,495 for the SE model and goes up to £35,495 for the range-topping Premier. IS300h models range from £29,495 to £38,495.
UK deliveries will start in mid-July and order books are open now.
