Lexus

Lexus is the luxury manufacturer founded 1989 in Japan and first sold to the US market. It apparently stands for Luxury EXports United States, however it has never been confirmed.

Digital instrument clusters through the ages

The age of the gauge is over. Nowadays, screens are taking over. Most modern cars employ some of digital display to present vehicle data. Audi could be considered pioneers of this modern-day trend, having implemented one of the first, customisable fully-digital instrument clusters, in the third-generation Audi TT. They are not an entirely new thing, however...

Video: 2021 Lexus LC500 Convertible review

From the moment we first saw it, there was no doubt that the Lexus LC500 was a beautifully styled sports coupe, and as you tend to do when you see a beautiful coupe, thoughts drift to what it might look like with the roof removed from the equation. Or more accurately, a roof that can be removed from the equation when the mood takes you.

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.

Every car leaving the Australian market in 2020

It was a big year for automotive in 2020, with the exit of Holden, the cancellation of international motor shows and the Australian Grand Prix due to coronavirus, and the steady decline of new car sales. In a challenging climate, it's perhaps unsurprising that carmakers reduced their ranges, discontinued under-performers and replaced older models with hybrids, electric cars or new creations altogether...

2012 Lexus IS F review

So the day comes to finally get one of my dream cars; a 2011 MY12 Lexus IS F. It's absolutely immaculate on the outside, beautiful on the inside and well serviced. It couldn't have been a more perfect car for the price. I've always been a fan of fast luxury mid-sized sedans with big motors. With the IS F you get the beautiful sound of a 5...

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...
