    Official: Lexus has big expectations for small NX crossover
    1403982000

    One has to wonder why it took so long for Lexus to enter the hotly contested compact premium crossover market. The brand itself projects some 36,000 sales for its brand-new NX, which is set to go on sale in the US in November. Add that potential to the 100,000-plus RX crossovers it sells annually ...

    Official: Lexus fans vote Solar Flare for new RC F hue
    1403098140

    What's in a name? When it comes to model nameplates, quite a lot, and automakers go to considerable lengths to find just the right one. Same goes for the names of the colors in the catalog (save for maybe the Rape Yellow in the extensive Bugatti palette), but every once in a while, an automaker ...

    Report: Lexus back in luxury sales race after three-year absence
    1402243620

    Think the only challengers for the title of best-selling luxury brand hail from der Vaterland? Wrong. Lexus outsold the likes of Mercedes-Benz for the second time in 2014 last month. In fact, the Japanese luxury marque's total sales this year are a mere 12,000 units behind BMW. Lexus was able to ...

    Report: This is what a Lexus RC-based 'four-door coupe' might look like
    1401748200

    It feels like there is a secret law in Germany mandating that every domestic automaker there must offer at least one model with a four-door coupe bodystyle like the BMW Gran Coupes, Mercedes-Benz CLS and Audi A7. Several of the German brands even have the swoopy sedans in multiple sizes. So far, ...

    1399555800

    Flip through the catalog for most Lexus models and you're bound to see an array of different shades of beige and gray.

    Report: Lexus launches supercharged LX 570 in Middle East
    1398948240

    The Lexus LX SUV is a very muscular, old-school vehicle. Based on the Toyota Land Cruiser, it's still a big, body-on-frame SUV, but inside it offers acres of leather and luxury tech. The brand's Kuwaiti distributor is taking it machismo even further for the local market with the new LX 570 ...

    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 ...

    Rumormill: Lexus IS 250 to get new turbo four?
    1398205740

    "All show, no go." That's how I described the 2014 Lexus IS 250 F Sport that you see above, when I reviewed it back in November. Don't get me wrong, there's a lot to like about the new IS, but the 204-horsepower, 2.5-liter V6 in the IS 250 is not on that list. In my review, I suggested that Lexus ...
