Lexus IS 300h Sport

£299 per month with a £6,344 deposit (2.9 per cent APR)

Lexus chips in a generous deposit on the bold IS, but asks for a larger one in return. This is hard to swallow, given the car lacks a diesel option and isn’t as good to drive as rivals. In its favour are tax-friendly emissions on the 300h hybrid – which is the best version in the range – and a comfortable ride. The cabin is roomy and feels top-class, and all but basic SE models get sat-nav.
