Lexus IS 

Today we’re going to have the Brits tell us how the Lexus IS compares to the BMW 3 Series and Audi A4.
Here in the States, the Lexus IS has done well in some comparisons, beating cars like the BMW 335i and the Cadillac ATS 3.6. So how will the Brits respond to the Lexus IS in the Auto Express comparo below?

Let’s keep in mind, they are comparing the Lexus IS 300h (hybrid) against two German diesels: the Audi A4 2.0 TDI, and the BMW 320d. All the cars in this comparison are not for sale in the U.S., so this will be a nice opportunity to see how people live on the other side of the pond.
Here’s a quick look at the stats:

  • Lexus IS 300h: 221 horsepower – 0-60 in 7.8 seconds
  • BMW 320d: 161 horsepower – 0-60 in 7.8 seconds
  • Audi A4 2.0 TDI: 175 horsepower – 0-60 in 8.4 seconds
