2018 Lexus ES300h... not just a tarted-up Camry

When you think Lexus, you think old man’s car. Well, that’s all changing… and in a big way. Lexus has gone to town on dropping that image with sharp styling, stacks of luxury and the option to ‘sportify’ your car with an F-Sport package. Enter stage left the Lexus ES300h. I hopped into the car thinking it was a Toyota Camry with some fancy leather and a stack of features...

The result is a 15.8 per cent improvement on January 2018's figure of 609 units, largely bolstered by the introduction of the all-new UX baby crossover (pictured above), which added 116 units...

2014 Lexus IS250C, IS F added to Takata recall

Lexus has added the 2014 IS250C and IS F to the Takata recall list, expanding on a campaign initially launched in January 2018. As with all Takata-related recall notices, a combination of heat and humidity can make the airbag propellant degrade. If a car fitted with a faulty inflator is involved in an accident where the airbag is triggered, metal fragments may shoot into the cabin, putting vehicle occupants at risk of serious injury or fatality...

The Winners Circle 2018, Anthony Crawford: Lexus GS F

Following the hundreds of test drives and numerous launches I’ve taken part in over the course of the year it’s almost impossible to pick a favourite. Real highlights included Porsche’s entry-level 911 T, Hyundai’s first hot hatch, the i30 N, and the wonderful Alpine A110 I punted at Targa High Country, all of which deserve podiums for the sheer driving thrills...

CarAdvice Winners Circle: Lexus GS-F

Yes, compared with hugely more expensive rivals in the BMW M5 and Mercedes-AMG E63 S, the Lexus GS F is shamefully underpowered and downright slow in a straight line. But on a road like the Hakone, it’s probably going to be quicker, given the confidence it feeds back to the driver. And, besides, this may be one of the last naturally aspirated V8 engines ever produced as emissions targets tighten each year...

Before the LC, though, there was the brilliant and ultra-exclusive LFA, with its naturally-aspirated V10 that sang all the way to 9000rpm...
