2017 Lexus RX450h F-Sport review

The RX450h follows the Lexus theory of packing as much standard gear into the starting price as possible. At 100 grand though, the F-Sport variant is pushing into serious money territory.

2017 Lexus LC500 review

Lexus has a new flagship, the LC500 - and it's not like any Lexus we've seen before, except for the LFA. And it goes as good as it looks.

2017 Lexus IS review

The face-lifted 2017 Lexus IS range promises more comfort, safety and equipment. But is there enough in the luxury sedan range's tank to justify a hike in pricing?

2016 Lexus RX350 F Sport Review

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...

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.

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...

2018 Lexus LS: Where's the hybrid Lexus is so known for?

This week's big unveiling of the all-new 2018 Lexus LS, six years in the making, debuted a new evolution of the company's styling themes, all riding on a stretched version of the platform that underpins the new LC coupe.

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...

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...
