Revised Lexus IS Range Priced from Under GBP24,500
The new IS 220d is equipped with the new 148 bhp and 340 Nm version of the 2.2-litre diesel engine that now meets Euro 5 emissions standards. The car is capable of accelerating from 0 to 62 mph in 10.2 seconds.
Combined cycle fuel consumption is 55.4 mpg (4.25 l/00km) and CO2 emissions are 134g/km, compared to 50.4 mpg (4.66 l/100km) and 148g/km for the previous IS 220d.
Focused of the styling changes is the F-Sport grade, which includes a new deep front spoiler with faired-in fog lights, new grille design and a rear spoiler with integrated stop light, while the 18-inch alloy wheels have a dark silver finish and black centre.
Meanwhile all IS models equipped with high-intensity discharge (HID) headlights gain LED daytime running lights and across the range there are new wheel designs, new rear light designs and a revised choice of exterior colours.
Revisions in the IS range also included improvements to the SE-I specification to introduce rain-sensing wipers, an auto-dimming electrochromic rear view mirror and a new leather upholstery with heated front seats.
