2019 Lexus UX250h F Sport long-term review: Farewell

The little green UX250h long-termer has proven to be a fantastic premium urban runabout, and it's time to say 'sayonara'.

2019 Lexus RC F review

The 'base' RC F presents a relative bargain in the luxury performance coupe segment, combining V8 thrills for tens of thousands less than European competitors.

2020 Lexus RX review

Lexus has focused on polish and fixes for its facelifted RX large-SUV range. But do myriad detail changes conspire to improve the breed to a meaningful level?

2019 Lexus UX250h F Sport long-term review: Highway driving

Despite its urban roots, the Lexus UX250h is more than capable of handling longer stints on the highway.

2019 Lexus GS F long-term review: Farewell

Comparison: Genesis G70 takes on BMW 3 Series and Lexus IS

Does the new 2019 Genesis G70 truly measure up on critical merit to key rivals from Germany and Japan, such as the new-generation BMW 3 Series and the familiar Lexus IS? Curt and Jez find out.

2019 Lexus GS F long-term review: Build quality

After five months with multiple different drivers, we can honestly say our GS F feels as tight and as well screwed together as it was the day it landed in the CarAdvice garage. There are no squeaks or rattles anywhere, but we would have been disappointed with any less of a result. Next month, we say goodbye to our GS F long-termer, so stay tuned for a final wrap-up of the go-fast Lexus sedan...

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...

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...
