In addition to the regular SE specification, the new IS 200d Advance models come equipped with a hard disc drive (HDD) satellite navigation system, rear parking camera, heated electrically adjustable front seats, front and rear parking sensors, cruise control, rain-sensing windscreen wipers and an auto-dimming rear view mirror.
It’s the kind of options tick-list that should add up to a hefty price premium, yet the new Advance IS 200d costs just an extra £130 compared its SE equivalent (£24,995)
Even more appealing is the fact that, comparing like for like specifications, the IS 200d diesel returning an official 134g/km CO2 emissions and 55.4mpg combined cycle fuel economy – offering better specification than the BMW 318d SE and the Audi A4 2.0 TDI 140 Technik.
Factor in Lexus’s unchallenged industry-leading customer service, and hallmark comfort, quality and refinement and the new IS Advance models become an even stronger proposition. The Lexus IS 200d Advance is on sale now.
