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...

Lexus LF-FC Concept Walkaround : 2015 Tokyo Motor Show

Read the article here. The wraps have been pulled from the latest vehicle in Lexus’s long-running ‘LF’ concept series, this time in the form of the long and loaded Lexus LF-FC limousine. The large, hydrogen-powered luxury car is believed to preview the Japanese brand’s long-awaited successor to the LS limo, though Lexus executives on the floor at the 2015 Tokyo motor show were hesitant to draw direct links between the two...

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 wants to provoke envy in onlookers, says new branding chief

Lexus is well-known for offering high-quality vehicles and fantastic customer service, though the company recognises it doesn't spark the envy and admiration that its German rivals enjoy. According to industry journal Automotive News, the Japanese marque is looking to pump some life into its image as a lifestyle brand, and to do it, parent company Toyota has appointed outgoing Lexus chief, Tokuo Fukuichi, as its chief branding officer...

Lexus LX450d diesel launches in India, still off the cards for Australia

Availability of the diesel-powered Lexus LX450d has expanded to the Indian market this week, but, despite being offered in New Zealand, it remains off the cards for Australia. Powered by the same 200kW/650Nm 4.5-litre twin-turbo V8 diesel engine offered in the related Toyota Landcruiser 200 Series, the 2.5+ tonne LX450d is capable of accelerating from 0-100km/h in a respectable 8...

2018 Lexus LS500h revealed

The Lexus LS500h, the second variant in the fifth-generation LS range, has been unveiled at the 2017 Geneva motor show. Unsurprisingly, the LS500h shares its hybrid drivetrain with the closely related LC500h coupe. Both models feature a new Multi-Stage Hybrid drivetrain with 264kW of total system power that uses a traditional automatic transmission instead of the company's usual e-CVT setup...

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...
