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...

REVIEW: 2019 Lexus RCF Track Edition (featuring Scott Pruett!)

The new RC F is an exciting addition to the increasingly rare V8 sports car landscape, and one that now handles better than ever. The updates for 2019 have been incremental, but the cumulative effect of all these changes has made for quite a substantial upgrade over the previous model...

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...

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 confirms LC Convertible for production, local arm ‘very keen’

Lexus has confirmed it will produce the LC Convertible, debuting a camouflaged pre-production prototype at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. Timing and specification of the LC Convertible is still yet to be announced, though we’d say the new model isn’t far off. “It will broaden the LC line-up and bring a sense of a completeness to the brand's flagship models,” the company said in its press release...

Lexus launches NX & RX Crafted editions

Lexus Australia has introduced a pair of special-edition models based on the NX and RX crossovers, which bring additional specification to entry-level variants for a minor price increase. The NX Crafted and RX Crafted editions are based on the Luxury trim level in both cases, and are available with all engine variants of the NX and five-seat RX...

Lexus UX: Apple CarPlay, Android Auto coming in Q4

The newly arrived Lexus UX range will be available with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto in Australia before the end of the year, the Japanese luxury marque has confirmed. Following the debut of the smartphone mirroring technology (for Lexus in Australia, at least) with the facelifted RX sometime in the fourth quarter of 2019, the entry-level UX will be the second model in the brand’s range locally to get the feature...

Lexus Australia: Strong sales driven by hybrid demand

Lexus has defied the downwards trend in the luxury market throughout 2019, and it's crediting its range of hybrid vehicles for the results. Toyota's luxury arm was up 5.9 per cent in May and has exactly matched 2018 sales year-to-date. That's in stark contrast with BMW (down 3.8 per cent year-to-date), Audi (down 29 per cent), and Mercedes-Benz cars (down 14 per cent)...

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...
