Lexus New Zealand brings thrilling and finely crafted Lexus IS 300h Special Edition to its line up.
Lexus is known for combining advanced hybrid technology with driving comfort and luxury. The IS 300h Black Line takes that mantra as its platform and includes a muscular rear end, powerful haunches and sharp angles up front.
The 2023 IS 300h Black Line offers a refined drive which cancels out the hard bumps and rough edges of New Zealand highways, ensuring a fun and thrilling ride. Its 2.5 litre four-cylinder engine matched to the famous Lexus hybrid system provides more than enough punch to satisfy the driver.
Vice President of Lexus New Zealand, Andrew Davis, says this is a luxury car for the sedan-loving driver.
“The Lexus IS has been a popular model for New Zealand drivers that don’t need the functionality of an SUV and want a touring sedan with exceptional road-handling performance,” he says.
“Being electrified the Black Line edition also provides a lower emission sports powertrain and its aggressive stance is accentuated by the unique Black Line treatment. The design team have had a lot of fun enhancing this look and this is certainly a model that will turn heads.”
Added to all the luxury and technology features on the IS 300h F SPORT, are several exterior Black Line features to make it stand out from the rest of the Lexus line up. These include the Incognito (grey) body colour and Onyx (black) roof and bonnet. The car rides on staggered 19-inch Enkei alloy wheels finished in dark grey metallic and sports a piano black front grille and surround.
The Black Line is that rare beast – an energy efficient hybrid electric powertrain matched to a rear-wheel-drive drivetrain in a classic road-hugging sports sedan profile.
Inside, the vehicle has smooth leather accented F SPORT seats available in either Flare Red or Black with satin chrome ornamentation and black stainless steel window frames on the outside.
IS 300h Black Line is available for test drives and sale now. The Lexus IS 300h Black Line is priced at $89,900.
The pricing includes Lexus’ four-year unlimited kilometre new vehicle warranty, four-year unlimited kilometre full maintenance service plan, eight-year or 160,000-kilometre high voltage battery warranty, and the Lexus Plus AA Roadside Assistance package.
