  1. Is the Lexus is 200t still being produced in the UK? I am looking in the pre-owned market also but really not finding many, thanks.

    1. Hello Adz,
      Thank you for getting in touch with us.
      The Lexus IS 200t is no longer in production due to lower demand, and there are therefore fewer available on the used market.
      Thanks.
