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 well-regarded Lexus hybrid system provides plenty of punch and engagement to satisfy any driver.

“The Lexus IS has been a popular model for New Zealand drivers who don’t need the functionality of an SUV and want a touring sedan with exceptional road-handling performance,” says Vice President of Lexus New Zealand, Andrew Davis.

“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.”

At its base, the Black Line offers up an energy efficient hybrid electric powertrain matched to a rear-wheel-drive drivetrain in a classic road-hugging sports sedan profile.

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.

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. The Lexus IS 300h Black Line is available for test drive and sale now and is priced at $89,900.
