Sporty entry level Lexus

Entry level sportiness is a new option for Lexus buyers in the United Kingdom this summer with Lexus' new special edition Lexus IS 250 SR. The special edition IS may not have more horsepower, but the styling makes up for the lack of added performance which remains at 204 bhp from the 2.5 liter V6 petrol engine.

For just GBP 1,000 UK customers receive a full body kit (deep skirts in front, rear and side and a boot spoiler), 17 inch 10-spoke alloy wheels or the optional 18-inch Tsuki rims, aluminum sports pedals and scuff plates and heated front seats for when autumn kicks in. The new options are in addition to the usual standard features like 10 airbags, climate control, cruise control, smart keyless entry and engine start, LED interior lighting and Worcester Black interior fabric trim.

SPORTY NEW LEXUS IS 250 SR TURNS ON THE HEAT FOR SUMMER

  • Sports style at high value price
  • Standard features include
    • Full body kit and 17-inch 10-spoke alloy wheels
    • Aluminium sports pedals and scuff plates
    • On sale from 19 May, priced £24,990 (manual) and £25,800 (automatic)

Hot in the wheeltracks of the storming IS F comes another new Lexus, the IS 250 SR. This sporty addition to the IS range expresses its performance credentials with a full body kit and 17-inch 10-spoke alloy wheels on the outside. Aluminium scuff plates and pedals add subtle visual enhancements on the inside. Heated front seats are also fitted as standard.

The IS 250 SR is designed to deliver some of the sporting allure of the IS F and IS 250 Sport at a high value price. Based on the entry-level IS 250, the new model is packed with features that have a combined customer value of more than £3,500, yet the price tag is less than £1,000 greater model-for-model.

Key standard features include 10 airbags, climate control, cruise control, smart keyless entry and engine start and sequenced LED interior lighting.

The car’s already powerful lines are enhanced with deep skirts to the front, rear and sides and a rear spoiler. Owners who want an even more sporty statement can specify five-spoke 18-inch Tsuki rims.

Powered by a 204bhp 2.5-litre V6 petrol engine, the IS 250 SR will accelerate from rest to 62mph in 8.1 seconds (8.4 with the optional six-speed automatic transmission) and progress to a top speed in excess of 140mph.

Three exterior colours are available: Velvet Black and Cadoxton Slate and Argento Ice metallic finishes. All are matched to Worcester Black interior fabric trim. The IS 250 SR is on sale from 19 May price £24,990 (manual) and £25,800 (automatic).

The baby Lexus sure has a lot of tough competition, but if you're a Lexus fan, nothing else will do.
