Fifth Gear Review of the IS220d

Another week, another Fifth Gear  Lexus review posted on YouTube.

This time up, it’s the Lexus IS220d, from an episode aired in 2005:

There’s a few things that stand out in this review, when Tom Ford compares it to the BMW 320d:

“Do you want to be able to say, ‘My car’s faster than your car?’, or do you want to say ‘My Car’s torque-r and more refined than your car?’”

“If I’ve got to cover 30,000 miles a year, I don’t want a car that only satisfies me 10% of the time, I’d prefer something that really did isolate me and make me feel comfortable 90% of the time.”

The 220d is only available in Europe, and will seemingly remain that way indefinitely.
