Which used Lexus IS saloon should I buy?
Engine-wise, there's a straight choice between the 2.5-litre V6 petrol and the 2.2 turbodiesel. And, our vote goes to the punchy, swift petrol engine, not only for its performance but also for its superb refinement. However, the diesel's by no means bad, one of the most powerful in its segment and returning a fine 44.8mpg combined economy.
You can also find IS models with an automatic gearbox in place of the six-speed manual, but we'd stick with the manual.
