The Lexus IS 300h is a saloon car that is boasts stunning good looks, an exceedingly comfortable cabin and a wide range of standard equipment. This compact executive cruiser is fitted with an efficient engine too, and is available in eight trim levels, starting with SE, Executive Edition, Sport, Advance and Luxury.
The four-door 300h rides on 16-inch five-spoke alloy wheels that are fitted as standard. A range of body-coloured fixtures includes door mirrors, which are electrically adjustable and heated and come with integrated turning lights and puddle lights. Further lighting includes a range of LEDs, such as low-to-high-beam headlights, daytime running lights and rear combination lights.
An illuminated entry system ensures that access to the vehicle’s four-seat cabin is never hampered by low or non-existent natural light. Each position is upholstered in fabric and Tahara, and front-row occupants are treated to six-way adjustable seating. The driver further benefits from a tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel, which is leather-clad and features paddle shifts. Starting the car’s engine ignition is just a matter of a single press of a button. Also included are electric front and rear windows, electronic climate control and a 450-litre boot.
A standard-issue 2.5-litre petrol-electric engine, paired with a CVT gearbox, delivers 223bhp, 221Nm of torque and acceleration from 0-60mph in approximately 8.3 seconds. Perhaps more importantly, it returns as much as 67.3mpg and CO2 emissions as low as 97g/km. There are four selectable drive modes too: Eco, Normal, Sport and EV.
