With reference to the Autocar article thread...

Say you were going to be given a company car, and you could only choose between either the Avensis or Lexus IS200...

They are almost identically priced, and you get more toys on the Lexus, also, the IS200 is better looking...

But the choice is yours....

IS200

£18.675 RWD 153bhp 2.0 straight six, climate control, airbags, CD system

insurance group 12

Avensis VVTi TSpirit

£18,995 147bhp 2.0, electrically adjustable leather seats, similar safety and audio, and sat-nav.

insurance group 9

Avensis has 34.9 mpg which is 6 mpgs better than the IS's also Avensis is £570 cheaper in company car tax than the Lexus.

Now which would you have armed with the facts? :ph34r::thumbsup:

Hate to say it as both car's are very similar and would opt out of company car scheme to buy private anyway (with fuel card of course) it would have to be the Lex, the looks of the Avensis are noway near as aesthetically pleasing although I am sure it is a superb quality car, it has to be it's a Toyota......

Okay, 1st, the Tspirit doesnt have electrically adjustable seats.. thats the CDX...

The IS200 has electrically adjustable heated seats...

Which one has a better image?????

Although I am strictly a Celica man with possible Supra aspirations, I would get an IS200 if push came to shove.

I love what guys like Mat and Zee have done to theirs. :thumbsup:

The T Spirit does have electically adjustable leather seats (I checked on Toyotas website) and there is no CDX in the current model line-up

granted the Lexus has the better image but only if you're swayed by badges.

You'll have to read the article :D
