2020 Lexus UX250h Sports Luxury review

This elegant, economical small SUV is an unexpectedly appealing and unique proposition in the premium space.

2020 Lexus LX570 review

This luxury monster truck can take you off-road while your kids watch Netflix in the back seat. It may be a niche proposition, but it nails the brief.

2020 Lexus ES300h Sports Luxury long-term review: The road trip

Not so long ago, medium and large sedans ruled the highways and byways in Australia. Now, it's an SUV owner's domain. We still think the sedan has its place, though, and so we sent the ES300h south-west out of Sydney.

2020 Lexus NX300 Luxury 2WD review

This medium SUV takes on the rest of its competitive segment by throwing in everything but the kitchen sink as standard – and then throwing the kitchen sink in as well.

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.

November 3, 2019: For the first time in Australia, the Lexus LC Convertible prototype is on show to the public at the 2019 Lexus Melbourne Cup. It appears nothing has changed since its world debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in July, still covered in what Lexus call ‘digital camouflage’...

Every car leaving the Australian market in 2020 – UPDATE

It's been 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 are reducing their ranges, discontinuing under-performers and replacing 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...
