Lexus IS 300h Executive Edition announced

A new Lexus IS 300h Executive Edition has been added to the IS range, which adds features worth £3,390 to the existing Luxury grade at no cost to the customer.

The Executive Edition comes complete with leather upholstery and Lexus Navigation system, in addition to the wealth of equipment, comfort and styling features provided by the existing Luxury grade model. With an on-the-road price of £29,995, the new Executive Edition represents £3,395 of “complimentary” value to the customer.

The specification takes in front and rear parking sensors, 17-inch alloy wheels, dusk-sensing HID headlights, cruise control, auto-dimming rear view mirror, dual-zone climate control and rain-sensing wipers.

Displaying distinctive, sharp contemporary styling that defines today’s Lexus models, the IS 300h has impressive street presence, yet offers the kind of comfort and luxury for which Lexus is renowned.

The proven, reliable and supremely smooth Lexus Hybrid Drive system returns impressive official fuel consumption and CO2 emissions figures of 64.2mpg and 103g/km respectively, yet does not sacrifice performance – acceleration from nought to 62mph can be dispatched in 8.3 seconds.

  1. Sorry to be picky, but “A new Lexus IS 300h Executive Edition has been added to the IS range, which adds features worth £3,390 to the existing Luxury grade at NOT cost to the customer.”

    Should read “A new Lexus IS 300h Executive Edition has been added to the IS range, which adds features worth £3,390 to the existing Luxury grade at NO cost to the customer.”

    Great looking car, I just need to rack up the miles on my current car so I can have a IS300h (F-Sport) 🙂

    1. Hello John
      Thanks for being picky and pointing this out! We will be amending. It is good to hear your feedback about the car and it sounds like you will be planning some long distance journeys in the near future . . .

  2. I have had my Is 300h Fsport for just under two weeks now. I absolutely love this car. It really is amazing to drive!!
    I read reviews before buying it with people complaining it was only doing around 40mpg, yes it does but, if you are careful as I was one night last week when I reset the trip computer, drove the 17 miles home from work & was just blown away when I had achieved 78.1 mpg!!!
    I love this car & everything about it from the front grill which just shouts out, “don’t mess with me I mean business” to the 78.1mpg ! £10 per year road tax.
    Line this up along side any Audi or BMW In the same class & the body styling just draws you in to pick this stunner every single time. Well done Lexus. Love it!!!

    1. Hi Paul
      Thanks for your post. We appreciate your comments and feedback regarding ownership of your Lexus IS 300h F Sport. Great to hear about achieving your fuel consumption figures as well. We also always make the point that driving a hybrid is no different to a conventional car and if you adapt your driving style slightly then you really achieve the best results. Keep us posted on how you get on.

  3. Does this car come with a spare wheel – even a saver spare? This new spec sounds like value for money – I have front and rear parking sensors on my Mercedes-Benz and find them very useful (if only I’d listen to them!). Might be changing my car next year and a hybrid ought to be on my list – present car is a diesel and I love the acceleration because of the torque. I’d need to see whether that’s available on a hybrid petrol too.

    1. Hello Dr Burgess
      Thank you for your post and for your interest in the Lexus IS 300h. To answer your question the IS 300h has a tyre repair kit fitted as standard however we do offer a space saver spare wheel kit as an accessory item. We also strongly recommend a good test drive particularly if this is the first time you have driven a hybrid. There is no difference in terms of driving, you put into D and off you go, however you will notice the difference in power trains as you will have instantaneous torque from the electric motor. If you do have a drive let us know how you get on.
      Hope this helps and any other questions please let us know.
