Review

The Lexus IS is stylish and beautifully put together, but it struggles to compete with its more conventional executive car rivals

We are yet to try out this variant

Drive in a relaxed manner around town and the hybrid drivetrain provides enough electric power for smooth progress, and it’s sufficiently punchy to nip out into fast-flowing traffic. It’s more compromised on the open road, however, because whenever you ask for a burst of pace, the CVT automatic gearbox pauses before sending the revs sky-rocketing. Not as economical as diesel rivals but cheaper than most for benefit in kind payments.
