From its dominant Lexus spindle grille to its driver-focused cockpit, the Lexus IS 300h stands out

among the luxury saloon crowd. And its appeal is more than skin deep. A stronger body delivers

exhilarating performance. Yet the IS 300h emits just 99 g/km CO2, so company car drivers pay

just 11% BIK and no road tax. Beauty, strength and intelligence – it’s a formidable combination.

STRONG

CONTENDER

From its dominant Lexus spindle grille to its driver-focused cockpit, the Lexus IS 300h stands out

among the luxury saloon crowd. And its appeal is more than skin deep. A stronger body delivers

greater control and handling precision, while the 223 bhp Lexus Hybrid Drive powertrain offers

exhilarating performance. Yet the IS 300h emits just 99 g/km CO2, so company car drivers pay

just 11% BIK and no road tax. Beauty, strength and intelligence – it’s a formidable combination.

STRONG

CONTENDER

From its dominant Lexus spindle grille to its driver-focused cockpit, the Lexus IS 300h stands out

among the luxury saloon crowd. And its appeal is more than skin deep. A stronger body delivers

greater control and handling precision, while the 223 bhp Lexus Hybrid Drive powertrain offers

exhilarating performance. Yet the IS 300h emits just 99 g/km CO2, so company car drivers pay

just 11% BIK and no road tax. Beauty, strength and intelligence – it’s a formidable combination.

STRONG

CONTENDER

From its dominant Lexus spindle grille to its driver-focused cockpit, the Lexus IS 300h stands out

among the luxury saloon crowd. And its appeal is more than skin deep. A stronger body delivers

greater control and handling precision, while the 223 bhp Lexus Hybrid Drive powertrain offers

exhilarating performance. Yet the IS 300h emits just 99 g/km CO2, so company car drivers pay

just 11% BIK and no road tax. Beauty, strength and intelligence – it’s a formidable combination.

STRONG

CONTENDER

From its dominant Lexus spindle grille to its driver-focused cockpit, the Lexus IS 300h stands out

among the luxury saloon crowd. And its appeal is more than skin deep. A stronger body delivers

greater control and handling precision, while the 223 bhp Lexus Hybrid Drive powertrain offers

exhilarating performance. Yet the IS 300h emits just 99 g/km CO2, so company car drivers pay

just 11% BIK and no road tax. Beauty, strength and intelligence – it’s a formidable combination.

exhilarating performance. Yet the IS 300h emits just 99 g/km CO2, so company car drivers pay

STRONG

CONTENDER

From its dominant Lexus spindle grille to its driver-focused cockpit, the Lexus IS 300h stands out

among the luxury saloon crowd. And its appeal is more than skin deep. A stronger body delivers

greater control and handling precision, while the 223 bhp Lexus Hybrid Drive powertrain offers

exhilarating performance. Yet the IS 300h emits just 99 g/km CO2, so company car drivers pay

just 11% BIK and no road tax. Beauty, strength and intelligence – it’s a formidable combination.

STRONG

CONTENDER

From its dominant Lexus spindle grille to its driver-focused cockpit, the Lexus IS 300h stands out

among the luxury saloon crowd. And its appeal is more than skin deep. A stronger body delivers

greater control and handling precision, while the 223 bhp Lexus Hybrid Drive powertrain offers

exhilarating performance. Yet the IS 300h emits just 99 g/km CO2, so company car drivers pay

just 11% BIK and no road tax. Beauty, strength and intelligence – it’s a formidable combination.

STRONG

CONTENDER

From its dominant Lexus spindle grille to its driver-focused cockpit, the Lexus IS 300h stands out

among the luxury saloon crowd. And its appeal is more than skin deep. A stronger body delivers

greater control and handling precision, while the 223 bhp Lexus Hybrid Drive powertrain offers

exhilarating performance. Yet the IS 300h emits just 99 g/km CO2, so company car drivers pay

just 11% BIK and no road tax. Beauty, strength and intelligence – it’s a formidable combination.

STRONG

CONTENDER

From its dominant Lexus spindle grille to its driver-focused cockpit, the Lexus IS 300h stands out

among the luxury saloon crowd. And its appeal is more than skin deep. A stronger body delivers

greater control and handling precision, while the 223 bhp Lexus Hybrid Drive powertrain offers

exhilarating performance. Yet the IS 300h emits just 99 g/km CO2, so company car drivers pay

just 11% BIK and no road tax. Beauty, strength and intelligence – it’s a formidable combination.

STRONG

CONTENDER

From its dominant Lexus spindle grille to its driver-focused cockpit, the Lexus IS 300h stands out

among the luxury saloon crowd. And its appeal is more than skin deep. A stronger body delivers

greater control and handling precision, while the 223 bhp Lexus Hybrid Drive powertrain offers

exhilarating performance. Yet the IS 300h emits just 99 g/km CO2, so company car drivers pay

just 11% BIK and no road tax. Beauty, strength and intelligence – it’s a formidable combination.

STRONG

CONTENDER

From its dominant Lexus spindle grille to its driver-focused cockpit, the Lexus IS 300h stands out

among the luxury saloon crowd. And its appeal is more than skin deep. A stronger body delivers

greater control and handling precision, while the 223 bhp Lexus Hybrid Drive powertrain offers

exhilarating performance. Yet the IS 300h emits just 99 g/km CO2, so company car drivers pay

just 11% BIK and no road tax. Beauty, strength and intelligence – it’s a formidable combination.

STRONG

CONTENDER

From its dominant Lexus spindle grille to its driver-focused cockpit, the Lexus IS 300h stands out

among the luxury saloon crowd. And its appeal is more than skin deep. A stronger body delivers

greater control and handling precision, while the 223 bhp Lexus Hybrid Drive powertrain offers

exhilarating performance. Yet the IS 300h emits just 99 g/km CO2, so company car drivers pay

just 11% BIK and no road tax. Beauty, strength and intelligence – it’s a formidable combination.

STRONG

CONTENDER

From its dominant Lexus spindle grille to its driver-focused cockpit, the Lexus IS 300h stands out

greater control and handling precision, while the 223 bhp Lexus Hybrid Drive powertrain offers

exhilarating performance. Yet the IS 300h emits just 99 g/km CO2, so company car drivers pay

just 11% BIK and no road tax. Beauty, strength and intelligence – it’s a formidable combination.

CONTENDER

From its dominant Lexus spindle grille to its driver-focused cockpit, the Lexus IS 300h stands out

among the luxury saloon crowd. And its appeal is more than skin deep. A stronger body delivers

greater control and handling precision, while the 223 bhp Lexus Hybrid Drive powertrain offers

exhilarating performance. Yet the IS 300h emits just 99 g/km CO2, so company car drivers pay

just 11% BIK and no road tax. Beauty, strength and intelligence – it’s a formidable combination.

STRONG

CONTENDER

From its dominant Lexus spindle grille to its driver-focused cockpit, the Lexus IS 300h stands out

among the luxury saloon crowd. And its appeal is more than skin deep. A stronger body delivers

greater control and handling precision, while the 223 bhp Lexus Hybrid Drive powertrain offers

exhilarating performance. Yet the IS 300h emits just 99 g/km CO2, so company car drivers pay

just 11% BIK and no road tax. Beauty, strength and intelligence – it’s a formidable combination.

STRONG

CONTENDER

From its dominant Lexus spindle grille to its driver-focused cockpit, the Lexus IS 300h stands out

among the luxury saloon crowd. And its appeal is more than skin deep. A stronger body delivers

greater control and handling precision, while the 223 bhp Lexus Hybrid Drive powertrain offers

exhilarating performance. Yet the IS 300h emits just 99 g/km CO2, so company car drivers pay

just 11% BIK and no road tax. Beauty, strength and intelligence – it’s a formidable combination.
