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

Lexus's smallest SUV really does put the 'UX' in 'Urban Crossover'.

2019 Lexus RX350 Sports Luxury review

The RX350 Sports Luxury blends edgy design with old-school Japanese plushness, but it still lacks the infotainment and dynamism of European rivals.

2019 Lexus LC500h review

It may lack the aural theatre of its V8 twin, but the LC500h still makes you look and feel like a million bucks – for a fraction of that figure.

Sitting in a car so often, you get to develop some thoughts on how it's all put together. Here's what we think.

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...

2019 Lexus UX250h F Sport long-term review: Welcome!

Only recently launched in Australia, the Lexus UX has added sales volume for the marque. For the month of April 2019, the company saw 138 registrations for the UX range, representing a market share of 10.6 per cent in the premium small-SUV class – behind the GLA, XC40, Q2, X1 and X2...

2019 Lexus GS F long-term review: 5 things!

We've put around 1500km on the clock of the GS F since we first introduced the car and more of our colleagues have driven it. Here's what we like, and dislike, about the car.

2019 Range Rover Evoque v Jaguar E-Pace v Lexus UX v Volvo XC40 comparison

As Land Rover lobs the second generation of its style-led Evoque into the Australian market, we look at how it measures up against a trio of other fashionable offerings.

2019 Genesis G70 3.3T Sport v BMW 330i M Sport v Lexus IS350 F Sport comparison

The Korean Genesis G70 has finally arrived to take on the best from Germany, the BMW 330i, and the finest from Japan, the Lexus IS350.

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...

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...
