Lexus introduces new GS 300h model

Lexus has added a new hybrid model - the GS 300h - to its range of mid-sized saloons.

Priced from £31,495 with a 2.5-litre full hybrid powertrain, the car boasts CO2 emissions of 109g/km, and while the environmentally-friendly model could leave motorists up to £2,000 a year better off, further savings still can be made oncar insurance premiums.

Available from next year; 17-inch alloys, 10 airbags, electric steering wheel adjustment, 12-speaker sounds system with DAB radio and DVD player, cruise control, push button start, parking sensors and electrically adjustable, heated front seats all come as standard.

Meanwhile, the Luxury trim level offers leather upholstery, navigation, 18-inch alloys and a Blind Spot Monitor pack with Rear Cross Traffic Alert; and the F Sport adds unique exterior and interior styling, perforated leather sports seats, 10-spoke 19-inch wheels and Adaptive Variable Sports Suspension.

The top-of-the-range Premier, costing £43,745, offers a 17-speaker audio system, 18-way electric front seat adjustment with memory, a new colour head-up display, AVS and LED fog lamps.
