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...

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.

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?

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...
