Lexus IS is a range of entry-level luxury cars sold by Lexus since 1998. The IS220d was introduced for sale in Europe in 2006, one year into the second generation of IS. The Lexus IS is ranked second out of 13 compact executive cars on Warranty Direct''s Reliability Index.
Lexus IS220d (XE20) (2006 - 2010)
The IS220d is the first ever diesel produced by Lexus and it was only available in Europe, where diesel engines are more popular. The four-door saloon uses a 2.2 L 2AD-FHV I4 Toyota engine capable of 175 bhp and a hefty 295 lb ft of torque. This is the same engine as is used in the Toyota Corolla Verso 180. Offered only with manual transmission, the common rail engine is smooth and refined although some reviewers say the incredibly long ratios can make progress slow.
The stated 0-62 mph time is 8.9 seconds and the IS200d''s top speed is 134 mph. The major benefit of the diesel is the reduced CO2 emissions of 168 g/km, compared to the older petrol engines, and the combined cycle economy of 44.8 mpg.
The IS220d was loaded with kit. Even the basic trim included items that would be found on the options list of rival models, such as eight airbags, climate control, cruise control, alloy wheels, six-CD changer, keyless entry and ignition system and steering wheel mounted stereo controls. The stereo offers amazing sound that one reviewer said turned the IS220d into a mobile council hall. The IS220d was the first in its class to have knee airbags and featured the first dual-chamber front-passenger airbag in the world.
The IS line received a facelift in 2008 and another in 2010 when the diesel engine was detuned to improve fuel consumption. This new version was renamed as the IS200d.
