New LE Model Joins The Lexus IS Range

23 October 2003

The enduringly popular Lexus IS range is being made all the more desirable this autumn with the introduction of new LE (Limited Edition) versions. Available for a limited period only, the IS200 and IS300 LE benefit from a superior specification for added luxury and sporting good looks.

Building on the equipment level of the current SE models, the LE introduces 11-spoke 17-inch alloy wheels and HID (High Intensity Discharge) headlamps. The interior features full leather upholstery and detailing and a front armrest is added to the driver’s seat.

The specification also includes front, side and curtain shield airbags, climate control, electric multi-adjustable heated front seats, eight-speaker sound system with in-dash six-CD autochanger, electric windows and sunroof, automatic anti-glare rear view mirrors and cruise control (automatic models only). The LE model includes over £1,200 of extra standard specification; all for just £460 more than an SE model.

The LE models are uniquely finished in Kodiak Sky dark silver metallic paint and are on sale now.

On the Road Prices:

  • IS200 LE (manual) – £20,795
  • IS200 LE (automatic) – £22,025
  • IS300 LE (automatic) – £26,865


The IS range has undergone some minor improvements for 2004; on sale from late October, the revised car now includes high gloss aluminium trim surrounds for the electric window switches and heating controls and a new oddments tray with lid for the centre console. For the exterior, the front and rear light extensions now incorporate a smoke-effect finish.
