In 2018, the all-new seventh-generation Lexus ES redefined its status among entry-level luxury sedans with a striking exterior design and transformative performance made possible by the Global Architecture–K (GA-K) platform. For the 2022 model year, the new ES family builds upon this recipe for success with numerous multimedia, safety, style, and color updates.
The Lexus LC 500 needs no formal introduction. It greets all encounters with a growl from its powerful 471-horsepower naturally aspirated V8 engine. Its artfully chiseled lines and refined curvature marry luxury and performance in a way that only Lexus can. The new 2021 LC 500 Inspiration Series takes the grand-touring coupe to the next level with an aviation-inspired design that will land in dealerships later this winter.
Last year as part of its new global electrification strategy, Lexus debuted the futuristic LF-30 concept car at the Tokyo Motor Show, which thrilled attendees with its visionary design and imaginative technologies. The new strategy, called ‘Lexus Electrified’, targets a fundamental leap in vehicle performance, handling, control and driver enjoyment.
We won’t lie, the Lexus IS is in need of a tech update, and the engine lineup doesn’t quite make sense. But fun-to-drive dynamics and attractive styling mean we like this petite lux-level sedan any way.
The Lexus LFA originated from a dream and a conversation over drinks in a bar. While it ended up being a pricey halo car with limited production, it signaled that luxury wasn’t Lexus’ only goal, and it brought more affordable performance to the mainstream.
Sometimes we get a test vehicle that inspires violently opposing opinions among our staff. The 2020 Lexus NX 300 F Sport is one such vehicle, so we offer a full review with a brief counterpoint. So, is the Lexus NX a poorly tricked-out Toyota RAV4 or a comfortable vehicle that only shares a platform with the RAV4?
The 2020 Lexus GS 350 F-Sport is one of those vehicles people often overlook, and even Lexus seems to be ignoring it lately as the GS hasn’t had a serious upgrade in 5 years. But, with sporting intentions, good comfort, a long list of standard safety features and a decent price tag it’s worth a look.
