2013 Lexus RX 350 F Sport [w/video]

A Sporty Package Does Not Necessarily Make a Sporty Crossover To say that the Lexus RX crossover has been the brand's sales success is an understatement. Last month, the Japanese automaker sold 7,357 units out of the brand's 18,235 total sales – nearly every other vehicle leaving a Lexus showroom is an RX. Introduced in 1998, the RX immediately established a name for itself.

    Without Cash for Clunkers in September, Prius sales hold steady
    1254513780

    Without the government-assisted sales boost of Cash for Clunkers, auto sales overall were down in September, but it wasn't as bad as all that. For the world's most iconic hybrid – the Toyota Prius – September sales went from 10,873 in 2008 to 10,984 in 2009, a change of -3.0 percent (there was one less selling day in 2009 compared to 2008, ...

Absolutely, but it's still helpful to see real-life data, as you'll see by checking out the results of a recent test performed by Consumer Reports.

    DetNews: Will Lexus become Toyota's Buick? Is it already?

    With a median buyer age of 56 years old and its reputation for longevity, today's Lexus ES350 may be the very last car many of the brand's buyers purchase. It's not like Lexus hasn't tried to attract younger buyers – those who may actually buy another car before being planted. Since its inception, the IS sedan has been a calculated shot at ...

    Despite the fact that diesel is undoubtedly the fuel of choice for a large percentage of Europeans looking to squeeze every mile out of a gallon of dead dino juice, Lexus seems to be sticking to its hybrid guns across the pond in a major way. In fact, Autocar reports that Toyota's luxury division will drop the non-hybrid versions of its RX, LS and GS ...

    Lexus reportedly aiming to please younger generation, compete with entry-level BMWs
    1247507940

    When Lexus was founded in 1989, it appealed to the staid sensibilities of its 45-year-old demographic. Now, those buyers are in their mid-sixties, and Lexus, faced with a 34.1% sales slip for the first six months of the year – more than its primary rivals from Germany – is rethinking its line-up and consumer experience to appeal to younger ...

    Few vehicles have done more to establish a genre and define a brand as much as the Lexus RX. Introduced over a decade ago to suburbanite real estate agents and their Napa-weekending friends, the original RX300 helped boost Lexus sales by 60% when it hit dealers in late 1998. Over the ensuing years, Lexus' posh people mover slowly evolved to include a ...

    We know Lexus is planning on introducing the RX-series at the LA Auto Show in a few weeks. Over at Autospies, they got their hands on some scans of what appears to be a Japanese brochure of the new 2010 RX450h and RX350.

    For the sake of comparison, the non-hybrid version of the Lexus RX sport utility manages to get 18/23 miles per gallon. The government reckons you'll spend $3,203 on a year's supply of gasoline for this vehicle. On the flip side of the coin, the RX hybrid gets 27/24 and will run you $2,562 for your yearly fuel. So, choosing the hybrid will save the driver ...
