Infomation About The Lexus ISD
In its first attempt in the diesel arena, Lexus looks to score with the IS220d. The IS looks like a Lexus GS on steroids. It's got a lot going on in the looks department which is a major selling point on its own. The Lexus is a car loaded with features for those who want a richer car owning experience. The key new feature of the Lexus is its diesel engine.
Unfortunately, the IS220d falls short of its rivals. The branding image that Lexus has earned in the market is based upon ultra-refined luxury. This turbo diesel does a good job in get you there is style. So the Lexus IS220d can almost be considered a leader in its class. This particular model has the ability to get up and go quickly.
It's low emission as well, making it appealing to the corporate type buyer, especially with all of the extra bells and whistles which make it seem like a bargain for leasing. Fuel consumption in combined driving is 44.8mpg, extra urban is 52.3mpg and urban comes in at 35.
8mpg. Besides the engine, the other features of the IS220d are varying in acclaim. The six-speed manual stick is a bit long and laborious, but the pedals are great. The brake pedal is especially good compared to other cars in this class. All of the pedals are nicely weighted.
The car has very good visibility with large, easily seen mirrors on the doors. The mirrors do produce some noise at speeds above 80mph, but its worth overlooking because of the excellent visibility they provide. The IS220d goes from 0-60 in 8.
9 seconds, with maximum speed of 134mph. This car is solid on the road, with a comfortable, controlled feeling. This is due to the excellent suspension and the 17-inch alloy wheels which come standard. Standard safety features also include twin, front, side and curtain airbags, ABS and ESP.
The VDIM control system for stability provides sharp, pointed steering capabilities. When it comes to sliding the VDIM system is all control, managing not just the brakes, but the throttle and steering and even counter steering. The counter steering does not get in the way of the driver, even in the event of full torque; the throttle response elicits only a slight feeling to the wheel. Full power returns rapidly once the detection system senses that the car has been righted.
The systems in the car are complex, but they are easily accessible and just as easy to operate. What the Lexus lacks in engine prowess, it makes up for and one-ups its rivals. The audio, ventilation and satellite navigation systems are easy to operate.
The functions are easy to use, and are not complicated at all. Another area in which the Lexus surpasses its rivals is in after sales service. Lexus continues its due to the preponderance of other excellent features contained within. The car is designed and built for today's car buyer and driver.
It is perhaps these other excellent features of which Lexus is famous for, that makes the car so unique.
