The all-new IS 300h will be available in Ireland from July 9, 2013, priced from €37,780 (including Govt rebate).

The IS300h features the boldest L Finesse design yet, with an all-new exterior featuring the Lexus spindle grille frontal design and independent arrowhead daytime running lights.

In addition to a new interior design with LFA-inspired, driver- focused cockpit, the IS300h also offers significantly increased rear seat space and luggage capacity.

Featuring double wishbone front suspension and a multi-link rear system, the IS combines improved ride, grip and steering agility.

The new IS also delivers class-leading safety features including eight airbags, whiplash injury-lessening front seats and active headrests, active break lights, a tyre pressure warning system and hill start assist control, along with advanced braking, stability, steering and traction systems.

The third-generation, 223hp IS 300h will be available in five grades: Eco, S-Design, Executive, F SPORT and Premium and features a new 2.5-litre hybrid system and boasts CO2 emissions as low as 99g, meaning road tax from €180 per annum.
