Lexus Reviews

New Cars
Good: Upmarket hybrid hatchback powered by the same hybrid system as the Toyota Prius. Exceptional front seat legroom. High quality interior.
Bad: Poor ride and handling. Slow performance. Lack of any driving pleasure.
Good: 7th generation Lexus ES replaces 2012 ES. UK gets ES300h hybrid with 215HP/160kW, combined cycle fuel economy from 60.1mpg.
Bad: UK arrival of ES 300h scheduled for 2019.
Good: High quality and superbly built. Strong performance and relatively low CO2 from 450h. GS250 petrol is £8000 cheaper. Impressively refined. GS F V8 fast but flawed.
Bad: Steering feels too remote. Still no diesel engine. Firm ride on F Sport models.
Good: Sharp and modern styling. Well built and upmarket cabin. Low emission on hybrid model.
Bad: Ride quality much better on smaller wheels. Not as good to drive as a BMW 3 Series.
Good: Striking design always gets attention. V8 engine in LC 500 sounds thunderous. Forgiving ride quality makes it a comfortable GT car. 10-speed automatic actually works very effectively.
Bad: Hybrid version isn't as fun as the LC 500.
Good: Looks good for a large car with sharp exterior styling. Refined and spacious interior. Incredibly refined.
Bad: Numb and uninspiring to drive. Poor fuel economy. High list prices. No diesel option.
Good: High quality and impressively refined. Luxurious feel to interior. Usefully large boot. Cheaper entry-level model with 2WD. Relaxing to drive in traffic.
Bad: F Sport models get strange exhaust note symposer. More at home in the suburbs than on twisting A and B roads.
Good: Dramatic looking coupe. RC F came first with vocal V8 engine and 477PS. Comfortable ride with a usable boot. RC300h is very smooth and refined.
Bad: Some dated features like foot-operated parking brake. Indecisive automatic gearbox on RC F.
Good: Very refined and smooth. Impeccable interior finish. Five star Euro NCAP rating. Lots of standard equipment for the money.
Bad: Not great in corners. 200t is very thirsty. No plug-in option so lowest CO2 is 120g/km.
Good: Three row seven-seater stretched version of Lexus RX 450h.
Bad: Arriving UK spring/summer 2018.
Good: Hybrid only and is smaller than Lexus NX. Built on Toyota New Global Architeture (TNGA) platform. Powered by new 180PS 2.0 litre hybrid system.
Bad: 2019 car.
