MOTORS THE LEXUS IS 300h PREMIER HAILED BY ALAN PARTRIDGE AS 'THE JAPANESE MERCEDES', LEXUS, (OR LEXII, AS ALAN WOULD REFER TO THE PLURAL), IS FAMOUS FOR ITS ABILITY TO EXUDE CLASS AND QUALITY, WITHOUT BEING OVERLY OSTENTATIOUS. A PROPER CAR FOR PROPER DRIVERS, LEXUS IS DESIGNED WITH PEOPLE IN MIND FOR WHOM IMAGE ISN'T EVERYTHING — THOSE WHO KNOW THEIR CARS PERHAPS, BUT DON'T FEEL THE NEED TO BRAG ABOUT IT. AN ALTERNATIVE TO THE USUAL GERMAN OFFERINGS, THE IS 300H PREMIER WE HAD THE PRIVILEGE OF ROAD TESTING RECENTLY, AFFORDS THIS DESCRIPTION PERFECTLY. WORDS AND PHOTOS BY LUKE YATES 88
