Video: Lexus LFA and Lexus LC500 together

Even in this industry, there are those most cherished of cars. Among them, unquestionably, is the ultra-exclusive Lexus LFA Supercar, which only a handful of journalists have ever driven. So, when the opportunity came around for Alborz to push a Lexus LFA around a private test facility for the very first time, his schedule miraculously freed up and he was on a plane bound for Sydney...

2018 Lexus NX review

The Lexus NX mid-sized crossover offers a taste of achievable luxury to buyers used to mainstream brands. But despite some welcome tweaks, it's merely a solid option let down by some obvious flaws.

2018 Lexus LS review

The Lexus LS is the car that started it all for the Japanese luxury brand. Now, with the fifth-generation, Lexus is banking that it has designed another game-changer.

2017 Lexus RC F review

Two years since replacing the Lexus IS F, the V8-powered Lexus RC F is still a car that knows how to hustle. But with an improved blend of comfort and pace, is it now the best it’s ever been?

Lexus LC500 and Lexus LFA, side-by-side

See the full article here. Even in this industry, there are those most cherished of cars like Lexus’s ultra-exclusive Lexus LFA Supercar, which only a handful of journalists have ever driven. So, when the opportunity came around for Alborz to push a Lexus LFA around a private test facility for the very first time, miraculously, his schedule freed up and he was on a plane bound for Sydney...

2017 Lexus LC500 review

This is the 2017 Lexus LC500. Yes, finally, a Lexus that will make any car enthusiast smile.

2017 Lexus LC500 review

Read the full article here. While it might look like the 2012 LF-LC concept car, this is the production version, the Lexus LC 500 coupe, and it goes as good as it looks. Buyers can choose between a high-revving 5.0-litre V8 or a new-generation hybrid that marries 3.5-litre V6 petrol engine; electric motor and lithium-ion battery pack - to a four-speed automatic gearbox mounted behind the hybrid transmission...

2015 Lexus NX200t Review

Lexus might once have been known as a boring, conservative car company, but things have changed, and the NX200t is definitely a love it or hate it proposition. This is one of the newest additions to the CarAdvice long-term garage and there’s good reason we chose to spend some time with this specific SUV. The NX200t is easily Lexus’ most popular model...

2017 Audi A5 TFSI quattro v Lexus RC200t comparison

The Audi A5 TFSI and Lexus RC200t are to cars what wrestling is to boxing. They look like the real thing from a distance, but in actual fact they're softer versions of their respective performance siblings, the RS5 and RC F. But, is that such a bad thing? Wrestling has millions of fans worldwide and to most people, it's pretty much the same thing as any other type of fighting...

Luxury sedan comparison part one: Hyundai Genesis v Jaguar XF v Infiniti Q70 v Lexus GS v Skoda Superb

What is luxury? Is it power? Is it control? Is it desirability? All-out plushness? Or just space? Is it a combination of all of those things? And if it is a combination, to what degree does cost and inclusions play a part in determining the luxuriousness of a car? That's what this test aims to find out: we have five sedans here that have some or perhaps all of those aspects covered, though none of them are the usual suspects from Germany...

Lexus leads luxury players for after-sales service

Lexus has outdone its German rivals for after-sales service in the JD Power Customer Service Index. The Japanese luxury brand scored 869 out of a possible 1000 points, a handy 17 point jump over last year, and 27 points above the industry average. A total of 547 owners who had bought a car in the past five years, and had it serviced at an authorised dealership in the past 12 months, were surveyed...

Touring Toyota's marvellous Motomachi and Lexus LC production

I've seen my share of vehicle manufacturing facilities, and many are alike. Some are more heavily roboticised than others, many are remarkably pristine environments, most are sprawling sites best traversed by buggy, and each runs to a rigorous regiment. Not surprisingly, Toyota's Motomachi plant is all of these things...

Lexus LF-1 Limitless concept teased ahead of Detroit debut

The Lexus LF-1 Limitless concept has been teased, ahead of its debut at the 2018 Detroit motor show in January. Given its unveiling is a month away, Lexus isn't particularly forthcoming with detail about the LF-1 Limitless, except that it is a "flagship crossover that redefines the boundaries of luxury", and "reflects the next genre in luxury crossover vehicles"...

2018 Lexus LX570 five-seater revealed, not coming to Oz

Lexus has unveiled a five-seat version of its LX570 four-wheel drive for the Los Angeles motor show, but it won't be coming to Australia. Under the skin, the five-seater is the same as the three-row car. That means power from a 5.7-litre V8 engine making 270kW and 550Nm of torque, hooked up to an eight-speed automatic gearbox...

2008 Lexus IS250 Prestige Review

This was my first car and I was on the market for a vehicle I could use to drive to and from university and work. Originally I had intended on purchasing a performance vehicle, but the styling and luxury features of the Lexus had drawn me in. I sought specifically for a vehicle with the enhancement packages to receive the Mark Levinson sound system along with Bluetooth and sunroof...

2008 Lexus IS250 X review

We bought this, our second Lexus, with 26,000km on clock. Soon after we had the 30,000km service done we took it on a Brisbane to Melbourne return trip which was very enjoyable. We upgraded the tyres before we left as the original Dunlops were getting old and were creating a lot of noise. We replaced them with Michelins; they weren't cheap at $400 a tyre, but what a difference it has made...

2017 Lexus IS300h Luxury Hybrid review

Many people absolutely despise the new 2017 IS range due to its extremely aggressive front-end, as it look like it wants to eat someone, but I however, love the look of the 2017 IS300h Luxury. It's bold, courageous and absolutely stunning (almost literally). The pricing of this vehicle is $67k AUD drive-away (we got it for less though), which is more than the base Audi A4, BMW 3 series and inline with Mercedes-Benz C-Class...

2015 Lexus Rc F Review

The Lexus RCF is bit of a mixed bag, a Frankenstein. Even its chassis is a clobbering together of 3 separate platforms, the GS, the IS convertible and the IS sedan. I've had it for a few months now and getting to know the car very well. Firstly, let's get the looks out of the way. They're polarising, you either love or hate it...
