Pricewatch: Lexus IS 220d v BMW 320d

FLEET News looks at how new cars taken on to a typical fleet might perform over the next three years/60,000 miles.

Using data from used car expert CAP Motor Research, we benchmark two cars against each other to see how they perform over the traditional fleet cycle. This week we compare two premium diesels – the Lexus IS 220d, the marque’s first ever diesel, and BMW’s 320d, the current leader of the premium upper-medium pack.
