Lexus IS300

Lexus IS300

Essentially a larger version from the IS200 and targeting the BMW 5-Series, the IS300 is powered with a silky-smooth 3.0 litre straight six engine which pumps out a good 211PS; sufficient to waft the four-door saloon from standstill to 100kph in a whisker over eight seconds, as well as on to a lot more than 230kph.

In common with its smaller sibling the accent is on sporty driving, and handling doesn't disappoint - as well as in common with IS200 the vehicle can be had in sedan or Sportcross sporting estate forms.

Transmission is auto only, but this is often controlled by up or down-shift buttons installed on the controls. A superbly-equipped cabin satisfies the expectation of owners.
