The Goal Is To Keep 'Boring' And 'Lexus' Out Of The Same Sentence

Our reviewer had incredible access to development mules of the upcoming LC 500 to see first-hand how Lexus will take the fight to the Germans.

A Turbocharged Heavyweight (And Not In A Good Way)

Lexus drops its 2.0-liter turbo in the two-door RC, but the car's overwhelming weight outshines the charming four-cylinder powertrain.

Replacing Displacement Without Getting Much In Return

We test the 2016 Lexus GS 200t sedan and find that it's a nice enough luxury sedan, but driving enthusiasts will definitely want to stick with the GS 350 and its more powerful V6 engine.

Turbo Makes The Base Better

In the last generation, the most basic Lexus IS sedan was a letdown. This new IS 200t is a lot easier to to have fun with, while still very livable.

Opting Out Of The Horsepower War

The Lexus GS F gives up power to the competition, but still has plenty of charms behind the wheel.

Boldly Going Where No RX Has Gone Before

The RX is the most important vehicle in Lexus' lineup, and the luxury brand threw the whole of its design and engineering might into its redesign for 2016.

An Easy Way In To The Go-Fast Lifestyle

The Lexus RC F looks like the track-worthy coupe we wanted. In reality, however, it's just a fast luxury car. That's not necessarily a bad thing.

Driving The Coupe With A Distinct Lack Of F

Luxury coupes like this new, 2015 Lexus RC 350 have got, to my mind, a more challenging mission than their all-out-performance variants; in this case, the recently reviewed RC F.

The Third Child Is Slightly Less Wild

I didn't get a chance to drive the Lexus IS F until 2009, two years after the car had gone on sale, but I still vividly remember the day it happened. Having piloted almost every other vehicle in the Lexus lineup at that point, I was stoked to finally get some wheel time in the V8-powered, flared-fender muscle sedan, but fully expected the car to offer a quick, sanitized and ultimately un-driverly experience. Lexus built well-screwed-together, comfortable, quiet, reliable luxury cars for the timi

Believe It Or Not, This Is The One We'd Buy

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, due in large part to its innovative all-wheel-drive system and relatively sporty driving dynamics. We spent several hours with the brand-new hyb

Ninety Percent New. Ninety Percent Better?

If you were an officious person with a particularly pragmatic point of view, you might be quick to note that 10 percent of the 2015 Lexus NX is shared with the Toyota RAV4.

An In-Depth Look At The Lexus Of Turbocharged Engines

If Lexus is going to stay competitive, it needs to turbocharge sooner rather than later.

Throwing It Back On The Grille Doesn't Help Flavor

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 could be an interesting proposition.

Almost-Realized Aspirations Of A King Slayer

Long regarded as one of the best driver's cars of all time, the BMW 3 Series has always been targeted by luxury automakers trying to create their own exciting, bang-for-the-buck sport sedan. For years, BMW has managed to ward off would-be rivals to its iconic 3 Series, but the combination of a softened F30 and solid, hard-hitting competitors could soon relieve the car of its crown. While the all-new Cadillac ATS has received the most publicity in this segment since its introduction, the 2014 Lex

Old School Meets New Lux

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.

All Show, No Go

"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 wheels and appropriate badging). Even though that rear end still looks a bit Droopy Dog to me (stop frowning, Lexus), the IS is sharp, though I'm

The Lexus IS 250 and Infiniti Q50 fell well short of their competition

Two of the most popular luxury sedans on the market -- the Lexus IS 250 and Infiniti Q50 -- tanked in Consumer Reports' latest testing. Neither car earned the publication's "Recommended" rating.
