Lexus IS300h 2021

The 2021 Lexus IS 300h range of configurations is currently priced from $64,500. Our most recent review of the 2021 Lexus IS 300h resulted in a score of 7.6 out of 10 for that particular example.

Carsguide Journalist Tom White had this to say at the time: Smooth, cosy, quiet, the IS looks and feels better than ever, but without a doubt this hybrid version is a car best suited to cruising the dense metropolis of Chiba at midnight more than it is carving up a bunch of S-bends in the Australian countryside on the weekend.

We asked Lexus Australia for 0-100km/h sprint times for the new-look Lexus IS, but the company said it doesn't have them. The IS350 would be quickest of the three, though.

Lexus IS300h 2021 Interior

It hasn't changed as much as it should have. The brand has been pretty reserved with the enhancements in the cabin, though the new 10.3-inch touchscreen - which now sits 15cm closer - is finally equipped with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Still no wireless charging, no USB-C charging, and no head-up display. It's looking and feeling its age in here, and the back seat space and storage could be better too.

Lexus IS300h 2021 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Lexus IS 300h here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Do trade-in valuations consider added options?

    The trade-in valuations generally don't take options into account, that's consider covered by the range that goes along with the valuation. The trade-in guide on your car is $28,000-$31,500. You should also remember that it's a guide only, and there's no reason why you shouldn't negotiate a better price, and to shop around to get the best price you can. You are better off buying a higher model with everything fitted to it than a lesser model and then optioning it up. It will always be the lesser model, no matter what's fitted to it.

Lexus IS300h 2021 Seats

There are five seats in the Lexus IS, but only the F Sport models get full leather trim. The others are fake leather. That's cool in an eco-way, but maybe you really want cow hide. The fifth seat - the middle rear - is largely theoretical, too, as the back is pretty tight.
