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...

Lexus GS F Review - First Drive

The fact that Lexus chose a racetrack for the launch their 2016 Lexus GS F is a sure sign the Japanese marque is supremely confident its latest and greatest performance sedan is nothing short of a showcase in dynamic ability. It’s the second full-strength F model Lexus has launched in 12 months, after the RC F coupe arrived in Lexus showrooms in February...

2016 Lexus RX200t Review : RX International Launch

The fourth generation Lexus RX is an eye-catching piece of automotive design, but it only got to this point because the boss said it wasn't considered edgy enough. When the RX was almost ready to be signed off, the company's chief Akio Toyoda demanded that it needed more emotion, and therefore, presumably, more angles...

BMW 330i v Jaguar XE 25t R-Sport v Lexus IS200t F Sport v Mercedes-Benz C250 : Comparison Review

You’re on your way up the corporate ladder, and you need a compact executive car that befits your burgeoning status. Or, perhaps, you’re coming through the other side, flush and looking to downsize without scrimping on class. What do you buy? Tough question. Fact is, if you’re after a sporty and luxurious mid-sized sedan in Australia, you’re embarrassed with riches...

2015 Lexus NX200t v Mazda CX-5 Akera AWD: Comparison Review

While wingsuit marketing and hoverboard spin will come and go, Lexus continues to inhabit the same cosy, feature-laden, price-savvy middle ground between Euro prestige and the affordable mainstream it's occupied for its quarter-century history. And despite its funky crossover pitch and brand-shaking turbocharged motivation, the Lexus NX 200t medium SUV doesn’t venture too far from the homestead...

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...

2014 Lexus Rc F Review

Before deciding to buy the RCF I have also driven both on the racetrack and on the city roads the C63 and the M4 and I kept an open mind along this whole process. So my opinion on the RCF is: Let alone that the sound of the RCF is simply amazing vs the C63 and the M4, The RCF is certainly not a car for drag racing and yes is a few cents slower from 0 to 100, but on the other hand, out of the 3 is the less nervous to drive, the more precise and (most important to me at least) the fastest on a single lap on a race course...

2005 Lexus IS250 PreSTIge Review

I recently went for a test drive in the new IS and didn't mind it but it made me appreciate my model a lot more. So thought I'd write a few tips for anyone wanting to buy one 2nd hand. First of all the 2nd gen IS is a lot better made than the current one with thicker leather seats and more soft plastics throughout the cabin. The 2...

Typical Lexus build quality finishing and reliability with a fast run Brisbane to Newcastle still leaving 80kms in the tank,lots of diesels wouldn't do any better with lots more noise. sevice costs are reasonable in comparison This is my 4th Lexus...
