Lexus IS Prices Realigned

Fri, 10 Aug 2001
It's all good news apart from aesthetics as Lexus has upped specs, cut prices and introduced a powerful new IS300 5-speed automatic model.

All Lexus IS models now have curtain shiled airbags, EBD, Brake Assist, ISOFIX child seat fixing points, a better trimmed dashboard and minor tweaks to the grille and rear light clusters. Entry models come on 16 inch wheels which should improve the ride quality an there is a new rear spoiler for the Sport.

The 211bhp six cylinder IS300 is available with the familiar saloon body or a new , much less appealing, SportCross 5-door hatchback. Both IS300s have Torsen limited slip diffs, vehicle stability control and 5-speed automatic gearboxes with steering-wheel fingertip push-button controls.

Prices are £18,615 for the IS200 6-speed manual; £19,845 for the IS200 4-speed automatic; £20,230 for the IS200SE 6-speed manual; £21,460 for the IS200SE 4-speed automatic; £21,205 for the IS200 Sport 6-speed manual; £26,700 for the IS300 5-speed automatic saloon; and £28,450 for the IS300 5-speed automatic SportCross. All prices are on the road with a three year warranty.
