Video review: 2020 Lexus LS500h F Sport

Lexus has been a remarkable success story in Australia, especially when you consider the difficulties a brand like Infiniti has had in this market, and the 2020 Lexus LS500h F Sport is a timely reminder that Japanese luxury sedans from the Lexus stable are as good, if not better, than any of the competition.

2019 Lexus IS350 F Sport review

I was a happy, one-eyed BMW owner for twenty years but eventually became tired of the increasingly excessive service costs ($850 to supply and fit four sets of disc pads) and turned to the internet to research an alternative luxury sport ride. A 2011 Lexus IS350 looked the goods with its punchy V6 engine, pin point handling and sumptuous leather interior...

2019 Lexus UX200 Luxury EP1 review

I purchased in Sept 2019 and have done 8000kms. My UX200 is the base model with options of metallic paint and Enhancement Pack 1 (power tailgate, wireless charging, cornering lamps, headlight washers, metal scuff plates and privacy glass). Although it is a base model it is absolutely loaded to the gills with equipment. Drive-away price was around $53,000...

2010 Lexus IS F review

IS Fs fly under the radar a bit, which I like. People either don’t know about them or think they’re an IS250/350. That is also fine by me. Before the IS F, I had a Renault Megane Sport 225 Cup with some engine and suspension modifications, and it was a really fun car to drive. However, I wanted a V8 and started looking around, when the IS F caught my eye...

2011 Lexus IS350 F Sport review

I've owned this car for just over a year now, and in that time have travelled 44,000km in it. Initially I was looking into purchasing a BMW 335I, 330d, or 328i. I had my eye on a few Lexus IS250s before a friend smacked me over the head and told me that would be a mistake. He knew I had an affinity for getting into the loud pedal on occasion...
