2017 Lexus LC500 review

This is the 2017 Lexus LC500. Yes, finally, a Lexus that will make any car enthusiast smile.

2017 Lexus NX300h F-Sport review

We like the Lexus NX, it ticks plenty of boxes, but the petrol/electric hybrid is definitely not the sweet spot in the range.

2017 Lexus LS600h F-Sport review

The LS has always been the Lexus flagship, and at one time was right at the head of the luxury sedan queue. The game has changed though and the current LS has been around for a long time.

2016 Lexus GS350 AWD review: Road-tripping in the US

To see what we're missing out on, if at all, Matt took an all-wheel-drive 2016 Lexus GS350 for a wintery road-trip in the US.

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...

The 2018 Lexus CT200h hybrid hatchback has been unveiled, with the brand describing the changes to its now more aggressively styled compact model as a "sweeping update" that includes "sportier styling, interior updates and innovative equipment". The styling changes to the updated 2018 Lexus CT200h are clearly apparent, with a more muscular front end design including new mesh inlays for the spindle grille...

2018 Lexus LS350 debuts in China, not for Australia - UPDATE

The 2018 Lexus LS350 has quietly broken cover this week, debuting at the Shenzen-Hong Kong-Macao international auto show in China. While there's no official press release from the Japanese marque, yet, the LS350 will be powered by the same 3.5-litre V6 petrol engine found in other Lexus 350 models, such as the smaller GS350...

Lexus sedans must evolve to survive, says executive

A senior Toyota executive says sedans in the Lexus range will need to evolve to become sportier in order to fight back against the ever-growing consumer preference for crossovers. Tokuo Fukuichi, Toyota's global branding chief and head of advanced design, told Automotive News, "Unless we can really offer a sedan experience you cannot have with an SUV or crossover, I think the sedan may not be able to survive if it does not evolve"...

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...
