Lexus LC500 on the Great Ocean Road

Picture your ideal grand tour. If your name is Paul Maric, it probably involves an Aston Martin and a Californian highway. Mandy is all about Beetles, while Trent Nikolic ticked 'classic Mercedes-Benz on the Pacific Coast Highway' off the bucket list. They're all wrong, though, because the perfect grand tour involves a Lexus LC 500, the Great Ocean Road, and a date...

2018 Lexus NX300h 2WD F Sport review

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.

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...

1998 Lexus GS300 review

I bought a 1998 Lexus GS300 because I wanted something different to what most people have nowadays. I see many Nissans, Toyotas and Hondas, so why not get something different and get a Lexus? I thought it would be the best car because I don't see many modified GS300s, plus it's one of my dream cars. There are many things to like about this car...

2002 Lexus LS430 review

There must have been some collective cataclysmic insanity that occurred sometime in the early naughties, whereby all carmakers decided to discard the fundamental attributes that collectively constitute a ‘motor car’ and began to produce appliances. Enviably capable, functional and appealing, but just not, well, cars anymore. Such a shame IMHO...

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...
