Toyota Looking Bullish on Growth by Joseph Szczesny (2/6/2005)
Though recent profits are only modest, Toyota readies for a period of serious growth.

Lexus Eyes Performance Crowd by TCC Team (2/6/2005)
Toyota’s luxury division ponders how to best add more go-fast buzz.

 

 

Every so often, a car comes along that revolutionizes the concept of luxury: the tailfinned, ’59 Cadillac Eldorado, the sporty BMW 3-Series and the lavish Mercedes-Benz S-Class, to name just a few.

Fifteen years ago, a new player entered the luxury market, and Lexus didn’t play by the traditional rules. Its original LS400 was unexpectedly affordable, surprisingly well equipped and uncannily quiet. It may have been, as critics contended, plain vanilla, but the sedan made a quick connection with increasingly affluent Baby Boomers raised on Japanese imports.

These days, Lexus is the U.S.market’s luxury segment leader, something of a surprise, actually, when you consider that the automaker has had a dearth of new products in recent years. It hasn’t introduced a new passenger car since 2001, nor a light truck since 2003. In today’s hotly competitive market, that’s a potentially serious disadvantage, but one that Toyota’s highline marque is determined to address.

The coming months will see a flood of new vehicles, including the world’s first luxury hybrid, a version of the brand’s popular crossover/ute dubbed the RX400h. An updated IS sedan is in final development, Lexus intent on tackling the segment long dominated by the BMW 3-Series.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
