Beautiful, sporty and fun, the Lexus IS is a vehicle built so you can make the most of every minute.
Recently the Lexus IS 300h has won the Wheels Magazine Gold Star Award for Best Value Premium Sedan, proving that the medium-sized sedan is not only a leader in luxury, but also in a leader in value.
The Wheels Gold Star Awards are awarded based on an algorithm and a stringent set of value measures that go beyond the showroom, taking into account the costs of running and maintaining new vehicles.
The Lexus IS 300h won Wheels’ pick for Best Value Premium Sedan over its closest rivals the Audi A4 35 TFSI and the Mercedes-Benz C200.
Servicing costs, comprehensive insurance, warranty, fuel consumption and depreciation are some of the areas where Lexus IS 300h’s rivals fell down.
The model's hybrid drivetrain exceeded expectations, providing exceptional fuel efficiency and category leading low fuel costs.
