Lexus Quick Spins

Lexus is the luxury vehicle division of Japanese automaker Toyota that was launched in the US back in 1989. The brand initially began with one model, the LS large sedan, but has expanded to include coupes, convertibles, SUVs and CUVs. Lexus was the first Japanese luxury brand to seriously compete with German marques thanks to its sterling reputation for quality.

    Quick Spin: 2015 Lexus NX 300h
    Believe It Or Not, This Is The One We'd Buy 1405353420

    With so much hullabaloo being made over the first gasoline turbocharged engine produced by Lexus, it's easy to forget that there's another option for those who'd rather (barely) hear the whirring of electric motors than the high-pitched whizzing of turbos. That's too bad, because we think the NX 300h is one of the more interesting hybrids on the market, ...

    Quick Spin: 2014 Lexus CT 200h F Sport
    Throwing It Back On The Grille Doesn't Help Flavor 1398441420

    The idea of the Lexus CT 200h F Sport intrigues me. A compact, premium, efficient hatchback with an added dose of sportiness? Sign me up. It's why I'm still crossing my fingers for Volkswagen to sell the Golf GTD on our shores (though recent reports on that front are bumming me out). And judging a book by its cover, this Lexus certainly looks like it ...

    Quick Spin: 2014 Lexus GX 460
    Old School Meets New Lux 1387558620

    The Toyota 4Runner has always held a special place in my heart for its boxy styling and off-road prowess, but until now, I never had the chance to drive its more luxurious cousin, the Lexus GX 460. Granted, the GX actually has more in common with the foreign-market Land Cruiser Prado, but all three SUVs ride on the same body-on-frame platform. Originally ...

    Quick Spin: 2014 Lexus IS 250 AWD F Sport
    All Show, No Go 1383929820

    "Ooh, this looks fun!" my otherwise car-ignorant friend said as we walked up to the 2014 Lexus IS 250 F Sport. And yeah, it does look fun. In fact, despite my initial strong negative reaction to the design, I've really warmed up to this new IS, especially with the flashier F Sport package found on this test car (unique front fascia, 18-inch dark alloy ...

    Quick Spin: 2013 Lexus LS 600h L
    1368646980

    I have spent the last seven days driving the Starfire Pearl (read: white) 2013 Lexus LS 600h L you see here. And after roughly 500 miles of errand-running, highway-cruising, commuting and people-schlepping, I can safely say this: I don't get it. The LS hybrid is a nice car. It's comfortable, has every amenity you'd ever want in a luxury boat, and with ...

    Quick Spin: 2013 Lexus IS F
    1364238000

    Sometimes fortune really smiles on even shiftless car-reviewing Dutchmen like myself, I must admit. I had come into Austin, TX the week before I was supposed to meet up with the good people at Lexus, who had graciously invited me to drive the 2014 IS. I flew in early because Austin is a pretty good place to eat, as well as being a place that my wife ...

    Quick Spin: 2013 Lexus ES300h
    1361995200

    The Lexus ES lineup, the brand's bread-and-butter sedan, has been completely redone for 2013. With that tip-to-tail rework comes the model's first hybrid. We think the ES350 is better in every way than its predecessor, so a spin in the ES300h is warranted to see what it's like to live with the model sure to become the best-selling Lexus hybrid sedan. In ...

    Quick Spin: 2012 Lexus CT 200h F Sport
    1347389880

    As we discovered the first time we spent a week with one, the Lexus CT 200h is an intriguingly Euro-centric player in the entry tier of the premium market. With a starting price of $29,120 in 2012 (plus $895 for delivery), the CT represents the least expensive way to get into a new Lexus. At that price, it seems like a reasonable choice. For just a few ...

    Quick Spin: 2012 Lexus GS
    1311782280

    How Lexus Plans To Take On BMW's 5-Series Some might claim the Lexus IS has historically strayed furthest from the Lexus swarm, but the GS has always been a Lexus apart for this writer. Until recently it was only outdone by the original SC in terms of novel interpretations of the family design language, and it has been the least like a motorized cocoon. ...
