... Lexus, on the other hand, had just released their new executive saloon challenger: the IS200. Available in three flavours, S, SE and Sport, the IS200 offered rear wheel drive, a sweet-sounding straight six-cylinder engine and by an amazing fluke of Japanese ingenuity even the entry level ...

Alan Partridge Eat Your Heart Out

AdvantagesGood level of equipment, comfortable, sporty

DisadvantagesSlightly sluggish with auto, cramped interior, poor boot space

" be silver. The Lexus IS200 is a very pretty car, with teardrop headlamps blending into a swooping bonnet with a bulging centre pretending to hide a supercharger under its cover. It doesn't matter what angle you look at the IS200 from, it is pretty, from those delicate headlamps to the large rear light clusters. But its those large rear light clusters that dictate the colour you must go for: they are bristling with brightness and encased in a chrome ..." Read review

Beautiful Car ... but with very irritating flaw.

AdvantagesFeatures, Build Quality, Safety, Looks, Reliable

DisadvantagesPainfully Under-Powered at Low Revs

"...self employed) was a Silver Lexus IS200, The SE (Special Equipment Version). I very much doubt you'll have any idea just how badly (prior to getting one of these, that is) I wanted to have one of these - even if you do regard the car as being desireable, I still feel that my (albeit highly subjective) sentiments for 'top-tier' Japanese cars - might make me seem to some people as perhaps even a bit weird! You see ... I have always put what I have held ..." Read review

AdvantagesStylish, bullet proof build, tons of equipment and not a BMW.

DisadvantagesPoor fuel consumption and performance for it's class and not a BMW.

"...This led to the Lexus LS400, which was superb but did not have the brand impact to impress European snob values. Years later it is regarded as a fine car, but people still can’t get past the fact that it isn’t a German limo. In 1999, Lexus launched the IS200 – aimed at the executive sports saloon market. King of the sports saloons was, and still is, the BMW 3 series. Fine engines, great driving experience, bags of driveway kudos and built so ..." Read review

Having owned one for a year what do I think?

AdvantagesCustomer Service, Build Quality, Value for Money

DisadvantagesAlloy Wheel Salt Erosion Pitting

"I purchased my Lexus IS 200 SE Auto in October 2003. Having owned and Audi, a Mercedes and a BMW I was immediately struck by the professionalism and keenness of the staff at the dealership. A sort of eagerness to please I had not seen in many years. That feeling is something I still get now whenever I deal with them. The IS 200 is not an uncommon car. You see lots of them around, rather like the ubiquitous 3 series BMW. However, the point ..." Read review

Lexus IS200, Bit unsure at first, but now... read on !!!

AdvantagesLooks great, sounds great, really comfortuble.

DisadvantagesTraction Control to Cautious

"...other car reviews! Ok, so the Lexus is200. I purchased this car a few months ago now so i have had a good amount of time to get used to it and find out all the good and bad points about it. At first i was a little unsure about this car, it looked great, both inside and out, but there was just something about it that made me a little unsure. I think it was just the brand Lexus, did it mean people would turn around and look at the lovely black tinted ..." Read review
