Brand New Lexus IS300H Sport Hybrid Auto 223 BHP for £24495 at Broadspeed, Save £5500 off RRP!

Found 12th Nov 2015
Found a cheap price for a new, high spec Lexus IS sport hybrid, combines a 2.5 litre petrol engine with a 141 BHP electric motor!

Very good reviews for this car, and unlike some of its german equivalents comes with a high standard spec including sat nav, rear cameras, 18inch wheels, Heated seats, LED lights, digital radio etc etc. Claimed MPG is 60.1.

Good alternative to the BMW 335d deal I posted a month ago. Looks the business imo.

1 Year old equivalents are circa £23k on Autotrader, RRP is £30,000

​ What's small driving space?
They call Lexus "the Japanese Mercedes"

​ What's small driving space?



The seat, and controls, and space around you is a bit like being in an Economy seat on BA, being sandwiched between two fat people who keep resting their fat arms, and shoulders on you.

Now a big driving area is when you lay on the sand and nobody else exists...

A car park?

Since owning a Lexus, it’s amazing the number of Lexi you see around. Because that’s the plural.
I drove am older IS220D around 5 years ago and the interior was great, as were the gadgets in the car, but the drive was pretty awful. Has the new one improved much? The sub 100 g/km versions of this car are great company car buys. As someone else mentioned, getting around the 50mpg mark is typical if you have a mixed commute based on some of the reviews I've seen. Voted hot as second hand prices don't seem significantly better than this.

Edit: I feel I should point out that this is comparable in speed to a new 318d BMW, no where near a 335d as mentioned in the OP.

I had the F Sport last year through work scheme and it's a lovely car, I agreed not worth buying new as I was offered a lower spec 1 year old one for £19,000. The car itself has all the gadget you would expect and full electric seats. It even move back when you turn the engine off to make it easier for you to get out. Being a hybrid it will take getting used to even if you already have an auto. The gearbox is CVT so needs to been driven smoothly (half throttle) to get the best mpg. Slightly odd for it to have paddle shift however this is useful as "engine braking" if you don't want to lose too much momentum. The rear space and boot is huge and the sound proofing is very good. The only downside was mpg of which I averaged 40, the CT200H I changed to gives me 50, although it feels much more average.

The driving space probably is considered small if you are an elephant, however no less small than any other saloon in its class.
good website
The only reliable luxury/executive car brand that beats average reliability and is in the top ten plus includes many options elsewhere as standard. However generally driving dynamics etc not as good as BMW, Jaguar etc. Personally I've never been a fan of Lexus styling myself though. This one doesn't seem too bad but much prefer the styling of Jags and Mercedes.

what a terrible website to navigate.
No leather seats?
8.3 seconds to 60mph seems shockingly slow for a 2.5 litre petrol engine with a 141 BHP electric motor.

Did you mean sport seats that prevent your body from moving all over the place when cornering?

Yep my 220d was awful too. The engine and gearbox were beyond bad. I'd probably still be tempted by this as the rest of the car was good. Oh except for the clock.. if you ever owned one you'll probably know what I mean!

Jaguar comes our really well in many surveys.
Lexus: Toyota with bling. Designed primarily for the US market where they value different characteristics to those us Europeans appreciate. Not 'bad' cars but hardly something to aspire to.

With 220bhp, it's a lot quicker than a 318d. It would sit in between the 320d and 330d

It's an important metric to most people. Are you 73?
