Lexus IS 300h hybrid car £2477.50 plus 18 payments of £249.28 (personal deal, all inclusive price) Two year lease £6964.54 @ allvehiclecontracts

This is a hybrid car with a 2.5-litre naturally aspirated 4-cylinder 16-valve engine with maximum 181bhp, and also an electric motor with maximum 143bhp. You don't plug it in, it just works like a normal car. Urban fuel economy is much better than diesel, motorway about the same. 103g CO2 if you want it as a company car.

Cost based on:

* personal hire
* two year lease
* initial payment - select nine months, it gives the lowest cost. Each extra up-front payment saves about £10, or about 4% interest effectively. Go for a smaller upfront payment if you don't want to fork out £2.5k up-front.
* payment holiday - terminal pause - six months. This knocks about £250 off the contract cost, and basically you pay for the two years in 19 months, and then you have five months at the end when you pay nothing. This is a very good rate of return.
* maintenance is not included, it adds £430 to the contract if you want, which is probably worth it (servicing and tyres)
* exclude £20/year VED
* includes document fee (£195+ VAT) and VAT
* 16,000 miles in two years (8,000/year average). Each extra mile is 13.16p, or for example 20,000 miles would cost £526.40. You can get a contract with more miles, e.g., if you request 10,000/year, then your contract will cost an extra £347.82. So it works out cheaper IF you use the extra miles you pre-paid.

Works out as £290.19/month, on average, inclusive of the fees, deposit, etc.

RRP of this car; £29,995.

Lexus comes with most things as standard, so there are few options to tick, the obvious one is metallic paint, but as this will cost an extra £640 over the contract term I suggest you don't.

Otherwise you've got a choice of black or black for the paint. The seats are leather, either black, grey or ivory, front seats heated, but not electric.

Electric heated wing mirrors, automatic xenon headlights and LED daylight running lights. Rain sensing wipers, keyless enter and ignition.

Satnav (7" screen) is fitted, as is 6-speaker audio system with bluetooth, CD and DAB.

2-zone climate, split folding rear seats, 17" alloys.

This is incredibly cheap.

For comparison this XF deal tied you in for four years and costs nearly 2.5 times as much:

hotukdeals.com/dea…919

Both cars are in the same size/category, basically the same on-the-road prices (the XF around £1k more) and whereas that one had a gutless diesel this has a more desirable hybrid engine.

There are no leases for cars in this category at anywhere close to this price.

Nice car but for a hybrid the co2 level is poor compared to eg the audi a3 etron

Intresting, reckon id use £80 less fuel per month than a standard 2.0 diesel of this size as i mostly do city driving

Nice car good deal have heat for the post

I hate lease.

I love lease

Lease turned me into a newt.

lease is ok if you stick to the big companies it's when you go for a cheaper deal with the many muppet firms advertising out there and they rip you off when you go to hand the vehicle back in.

Do you get a free Kylie with this model?

If you do I'm buying two...

At least it isn't on the recall list....... Yet.

Would make a good taxi.

Not very good at this sort of stuff.I do around 7,500 miles a year.
Each month I put around £90 of diesel into my mondeo diesel.How much would I save roughly on fuel each month with one of these?

I was actually going to wait for the new mondeo but I'm unsure now

Insurance group 32 WTF!

edit: has the price gone up a bit?

Still the same

why lease when for similar money could buy a decent second hand car .. and sell it after a couple of years?

Can you give an example of a decent second hand car of a similar spec that would cost less over this period (including typical repairs, tyres, brakes etc for a 2-4 yr old car)?

What sort of car? A used 3 year old 320d would shed £7k in two years, then you need to buy a warranty (£500/year), the car tax is higher (£120/year), you'll need four new tyres (£600), and you are then driving a used old model rather than a brand new car.

because the IS is same as a 3 series

GS (ive got one) is similar in size to a XF/5/E class

Who needs a car in London anyway?

Wish I could afford to drive one of these great cars, sadly driving 20k leaves me forced to buy used 4 year old diesels at around the 10k mark

The Audi A3 e-tron is a plug-in hybrid, the Lexus isn't. Do you understand the difference? E-tron/PHEV cars get much better figures because they assume a full-charge each time but don't consider the electricity cost or inconvenience factor each time.

I used to drive an MR2 all through the Winter - I nicknamed it the suicide machine. The word pendulum comes to mind - terrible for losing the back end. Front engined rear wheel drive gives you better control in the snow, provided you can actually make the car move in the first place.

Oh, and heat added - cracking deal. Wish I could lease but just too much of a risk for me.

Irrelevant - they're not competitors, XF is in next class up.

Cos you wouldnt want to own one of these things


So complex when it goes wrong.

Which MR2 was it? The last model or the better looking one from the early 1990s? It wasn't until I think Rev 3.0 that they sorted out the rear handling problems on the MR2. I love that model, always wanted to get an MR2 Turbo

Very impressive deal, I'm Lexus staff and I pay £310 a month for the F Sport, insurance, service,tax included. It's a lovely car but I'm only getting around 40mpg, I'm sure 45 is manageable but I can't see how the official 60mpg is genuine. I've had the CT200h which is very underrated, I was getting 50+mpg with that.

In terms of looks I think the IS looks better than the 3series BMW, but I'm sure the mpg is better in the Beemer. The CT is just better in ever way than the now "ford focus common" 1series.

Yup it was like that 25 years ago when I lived there, so must be worse now. I never owned a car, public transport is usually good enough in London.

Why would you pay to Service a lease car?



Because you sign a contract to agree to service it.

Hot from me. Does anybody know if the power from the electric motor adds to the total bhp or does the car just run on the electric motor around town to save fuel? Otherwise 181bhp isn't a lot of power for a 2.5ltr engine in today's competition.

I didn't realise this site had become HotLondonOnlyDeals...
