Lexus

Lexus was launched in 1989 as Toyota's luxury vehicle division and to this day, it is present in more than 70 countries and their respective markets. Lexus has established its headquarters in Nagoya, Japan, but runs operational centers in Europe (Brussels, Belgium) and the U.S. (Plano, Texas). Here's a little something people don't tell you about Lexus: after its inception - which saw the introduction of the LS 400 and ES 250 sedans - a single consumer complained determined the company to launch a special service campaign, thus creating a new standard in personalized service. Moreover, back in 1991, after the introduction of the all-new ES 300, Lexus managed to dethrone both Mercedes-Benz and BMW to become the best-selling luxury import brand in the U.S. Lexus assembles its cars in Japan, in plants located in Chūbu and Kyūshū, but also at Toyota's facilities in Tahara, Aichi, and Miyata.

What is the Cheapest Lexus?

The cheapest Lexus money can buy in the U.S. is the UX crossover. It starts at $32,150 but if you decide to go berserk on the configurator, that price tag will go up to way north of $40,000 really fast. The cheapest Lexus in Europe, however, is the still-marching-on CT hybrid compact car. In Germany, the Lexus CT can be had for €26,950 and is followed closely by the UX, priced at €33,950.

What is the Sportiest Lexus?

The sportiest Lexus out there is the RC F Track Edition. Powered by a naturally-aspirated 5-liter V-8 churning out 472 horsepower, the Track Edition is loaded with aero bits and bobs as well as carbon fiber (the hood, roof, and front splitter are all made of carbon fiber). The RC F in regular guise can dispatch the 0-60 mph sprint in 3.96 seconds, so it’s safe to say the Track Edition can pull off at least that.

What is the Most Popular Lexus?

The most popular Lexus is the RX. To put things into perspective, in April 2019, Lexus pushed 8,872 RX units, a slight decrease from 2018’s figures, which say Lexus managed to sell 9,697 units of the RX. If we are to look from the year-by-year perspective, then the RX sold 39,833 units in the first five months of 2019, after in 2018 as a whole, 41,197 RX models found new owners. Sales aside, Lexus as a brand has enjoyed a lot of popularity within the American hip-hop culture, with lyrics mentions by well-known artists such as Jay-Z popping up more than once.

What is the Most Expensive Lexus?

The most expensive Lexus is the LC Inspiration Series. Stateside, the special edition wears a starting sticker of $106,210. The V-8-powered LC 500, on the other hand, starts at $92,950, while the hybrid Lexus LC 500h will set buyers back at least $97,460. In Europe, however, things are a bit different, in the sense that both the LC 500 and LC 500h start at €101,400. However, Lexus still hasn’t sold all of its 500 LFAs, so we can also count the supercar as the most expensive Lexus thanks to a price tag of $375,000.

What is the Fastest Lexus?

The fastest Lexus is the RC F Track Edition. Thanks to the mechanical credentials stated above, the super-sedan can reach a top speed of 168 mph (270 km/h) and go from naught to 60 mph (96 km/h) in 3.96 seconds. On the other hand, the Lexus LC 500 clears the 0-60 mph (96 km/h) interval in 4.4 seconds on its way to a top speed of 168 mph (270 km/h).

Are Lexus Cars Reliable?

Lexus cars are very reliable. In fact, the 2018 J.D. Power dependability study for the U.S. sees Lexus take the first position, with just 99 problems per 100 vehicles. To make an even better idea of how reliable Lexus can be, the industry average was 142 problems per vehicle. Moreover, you might be familiar with the streak Lexus managed to bag as the most reliable vehicle in America for eight years in a row.
