Lexus is the luxury arm of Japanese manufacturer Toyota. Established in 1989, Lexus aimed to be an alternative to more established European luxury marques such as BMW, Mercedes-Benz, and Audi. Today Lexus carries the reputation of incorporating modern technology into luxury motoring. There’s no entry-level models in the Lexus range, as Lexus focuses on producing well-built, executive cars, that are built to last.
The cheapest and most popular car in the Lexus range is its hybrid-hatchback offering, the CT200h. This model has changed the way in which hybrid motoring is viewed. Whereas the Toyota Prius on which it’s based has an uncool image, the CT200h is widely regarded as a stylish luxury hatchback. It’s not quite reached the heights of rivals such as the Audi A3, or the BMW 1 Series, but it does offer buyers a reliable, safe, and green car, that’s more individual than its German rivals.
Technology is one area in which Lexus is an industry-leader. It is one of the few manufacturers on the UK market that has completely rejected diesel power. With the recent controversy over diesel engines, Lexus’ hybrid research and technology could become more and more important. At the minute, the petrol-hybrid engines in the Lexus range are some of the most competitively priced, efficient units on the market.
At the midrange of the Lexus lineup is its set of executive saloons. The smallest of the three is the IS, which is a refined alternative to the BMW 3 Series, and the Mercedes C-Class. It’s both stylish and comfortable, and it’s also pretty fun to drive. The medium sized executive saloon is the GS, which rivals the Audi A6, and the Volvo S60. This model might not be a bestseller, but it is an extremely relaxing car, both to drive, and to be driven in. At the very top of the executive saloon tree is the LS, which is packed with modern technology, whilst also being exceptionally urbane.
Lexus also caters to the family market, with two SUVS. The NX is Lexus’ compact SUV, designed to rival cars such as the Audi Q3, and the BMW X3. It’s not quite as complete as its German rivals, but it is extremely stylish. The RX is the largest family offering, and it’s both sophisticated, striking, and offers hybrid technology at a competitive price.
