The Lexus IS is a compact executive saloon aimed at the BMW 3 Series. It takes a different approach with its hybrid powertrain.

It might be a bit of an outsider in such a competitive class, but striking design and impressively low running costs make the Lexus IS worth a look.

Review Summary
If anything thing I've said here suggests that I didn't enjoy the SE, that's by no means the impression I mean to give. I liked this car a lot, and I can see that running one every day would be a pleasure. You can't beat quality, after all.

Review Summary
Every Lexus trait wrapped up in a tight 3 Series sized package. Superb design, forgettable to drive, probably quite nice to own.
