The TX is Lexus's most family-friendly three-row to date. Lexus's history with three-row SUVs is not especially heroic. The body-on-frame GX and LX have space but ride like trucks. The now-dead RX L drove better, but its diminutive third row had Porsche 911 levels of comfort. Lexus needed a better solution. Enter the 2024 Lexus TX. Sharing a platform with…

New Lexus RX 450h+ 2023 review

Lexus's large SUV offers plenty of luxury and tech, but it's not as family-friendly as its size would suggest Verdict The new Lexus RX 450h+ delivers on plenty of traditional Lexus attributes. There’s an impressive array of technology on board, the ride is tuned for comfort above all else and the build quality is exemplary. It’s a big SUV so…
As a traditional-style hybrid, this compact luxury SUV is less expensive than a plug-in but also less desirable. Although hybrids are proliferating in the compact luxury SUV space, the 2022 Lexus NX350h is in a class of its own. Whereas those other compact luxury SUVs, including the range-topping Lexus NX450h+, are plug-ins (or PHEVs), the NX350h is a traditional-style hybrid.…

New Lexus RX 450h+ 2022 review

The new Lexus RX aims to bring the brand’s latest technology to bear on the full-size premium SUV market Verdict The new Lexus RX takes known tech from the smaller NX and extrapolates this into a bigger package. There's much to like here. The new infotainment and the efficiency potential from the 450h+ powertrain are huge steps forward, while the…
The verdict: Flashy to the point of gaudiness, expensive but flimsy-feeling, big outside but not inside, Lexus’ flagship SUV drives well but is disappointing overall. Versus the competition: Competitors from BMW, Land Rover and Mercedes-Benz are more luxurious and higher-tech, while Cadillac, Jeep and Lincoln offer SUVs that are more reserved in their styling and more comfortable in their spacious…

Lexus UX300e: long-term test review

Verdict It’s early days for the Lexus, but it seems the car has a decent blend of dependable real-world range and a surprising amount of practicality. The public charging network is standing up well, too – so far. Mileage: 3,141 Thanks to its relatively early push on hybrid powertrains, Lexus is probably the premium manufacturer best known for electrification. And…

2023 Lexus RZ

Overview Lexus is getting into the EV game with the RZ SUV, which likely shares a platform with the Toyota bZ4X and the Subaru Solterra. This being a Lexus, we're expecting a much posher cabin to go along with its more upscale exterior styling. The powertrain should also be different in the Lexus, as patent filings have revealed the company's…
