2018 Lexus RX350L Luxury review

The seven-seat Lexus RX L expands the company’s large SUV range both literally and figuratively, answering a question posed by a number of prospective buyers.

2018 Lexus RX300 F Sport review

The Lexus RX300 in F Sport guise continues the Japanese brand's commitment to extensive standard inclusions and build quality. It's an exceptional SUV in every sense.

2018 Lexus LS500 Sports Luxury review

Lexus once again takes aim at the top end of town with its new LS500 flagship sedan, with a new platform, new engine, and incredibly detailed handcrafted interior that puts its German competitors on notice.

2018 Lexus IS300 Sports Luxury review

The Lexus IS300 range comprises many variants and trim grades, but the Sports Luxury is perhaps the smart-money buy with an excellent 2.0-litre turbocharged engine.

2018 Lexus LX570 review

There are two ways of looking at the Lexus LX570 – it’s either a ludicrously expensive Toyota 200 Series (considering the top-spec LandCruiser Sahara V8 petrol lists for $115K) or a relatively cheap eight-seat luxury SUV. To get his head around this lumbering Lexus, Tony Crawford takes the latest design for a spin.

Lexus LC500 and Lexus LFA, side-by-side

See the full article here. Even in this industry, there are those most cherished of cars like Lexus’s ultra-exclusive Lexus LFA Supercar, which only a handful of journalists have ever driven. So, when the opportunity came around for Alborz to push a Lexus LFA around a private test facility for the very first time, miraculously, his schedule freed up and he was on a plane bound for Sydney...

2017 Lexus LC500 review

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

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...

2017 Audi A5 TFSI quattro v Lexus RC200t comparison

The Audi A5 TFSI and Lexus RC200t are to cars what wrestling is to boxing. They look like the real thing from a distance, but in actual fact they're softer versions of their respective performance siblings, the RS5 and RC F. But, is that such a bad thing? Wrestling has millions of fans worldwide and to most people, it's pretty much the same thing as any other type of fighting...

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...

Lexus CT could avoid SUV transformation - report

Lexus could keep the CT hatchback alive into a second generation, despite small volumes and the worlds insatiable desire for SUVs. Speaking with Autocar, Lexus Europe boss Pascal Ruch said the ageing CT competes in a "very significant" segment. “At the moment, I see the UX as delivering additional volume, not necessarily replacing the CT...

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...

2003 Lexus RX330 Sports Luxury review

  I bought this car when it was about six months old. I wanted a car that was quiet and comfortable, but also all-wheel drive and could tow considerable loads on tandem trailers over rough, steep, boggy or rocky terrain. I knew it was a big ask of a car that most owners would probably not even take off-road, but amazingly it has handled this kind of treatment for 13 years and never ceases to amaze me...

2011 Lexus CT 200h F Sport review

Stylish and economical all rolled into one! I absolutely love my little Lexus CT. I’m currently getting about 700–750km from a tank of premium fuel (40 litres), which makes it really cheap to run around town. It has all of the usual mod-cons, luxury and comfort that I expect from Lexus: GPS, quality stereo system, really comfortable leather upholstery, quality finishes all throughout the interior, etc...

1998 Lexus GS300 review

I bought a 1998 Lexus GS300 because I wanted something different to what most people have nowadays. I see many Nissans, Toyotas and Hondas, so why not get something different and get a Lexus? I thought it would be the best car because I don't see many modified GS300s, plus it's one of my dream cars. There are many things to like about this car...
