Review

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

get the best price

Trim: Takumi

Engine: 300h

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.
