2018 Lexus IS
2018 Lexus IS

The 2018 Lexus IS has a tough mission, to conquest drivers who’d otherwise naturally opt-in with Mercedes, Audi, and BMW. It fights the good fight with sport trim packages, snug-fitting sheet metal and a dose of high technology. It falls shy of the benchmarks in several ways, but...Read More»

2018 Lexus GS F
2018 Lexus GS F

With its GS F, Lexus takes on revered rivals like the BMW M5, Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG, Cadillac CTS-V, and Audi RS 7, though at a disadvantage. Yes, it has a 467-horsepower V-8, but forced induction gives all of its competitors far more power. Still, track-ready handling mixed with...Read More»

2018 Lexus NX
2018 Lexus NX

In its fourth year on the market, the Lexus NX compact crossover utility vehicle gets some mild styling upgrades, additional features, and a new model name for the gasoline version. The 2018 Lexus NX 300 (known as the NX 200t in previous years) is available with front- or all-wheel...Read More»

2018 Lexus GX 460
2018 Lexus GX

The 2018 Lexus GX has something to hide. Beneath the leather and hourglass nose, it’s a Land Cruiser Prado—something like a Toyota 4Runner—to the rest of the world. It’s more a work truck than its glam-SUV grille and geegaws let on, but just a short drive in any...Read More»

2018 Lexus LX 570
2018 Lexus LX

The Lexus LX 570 exists because the Land Cruiser does. If that world-patrolling, UN-peacekeeping Toyota hadn’t built up decades of global goodwill, there’d be no reason to plaster it with leather and wood and a big chromey grille, and sell it as a luxury truck. The heritage...Read More»

2018 Lexus RC F
2018 Lexus RC F

The Lexus RC F doesn't have a high-performance sheen built up over decades. Rivals like the BMW M4 have considerable laurels to rest on, in that regard. But the RC F comes the closest yet of any Lexus to nailing the elusive German recipe for track and street two-door performance. We...Read More»

2018 Lexus GS 350
2018 Lexus GS

The Lexus GS is a worthy rival for the German sport sedans, taking a sharper edge than some of them. Available in GS 300, GS 350, GS 350 AWD, and GS 450h, in addition to the high-performance GS F (covered separately) models, this mid-size car is appealing for more than just its agile...Read More»

2018 Lexus ES
2018 Lexus ES

The 2018 Lexus ES mid-size sedan may be the most traditional model left in the brand’s lineup. It’s more spacious than the IS sport sedan, at a similar price, and softer and more comfortable than the GS sport sedan, which is the same size. As Lexus sedans have tried to be...Read More»

2018 Lexus RC 350 F Sport
2018 Lexus RC

The Lexus RC competes with established luxury-brand sport coupes such as the BMW 4-Series, Audi A5, and Mercedes-Benz C-Class. This year, Lexus renames the RC 200t and makes it the RC 300. It’s the sole 4-cylinder coupe; the 300 AWD, 350, and 350 AWD models each have a V-6 engine...Read More»

2018 Honda Accord
2018 Honda Accord

The 2018 Honda Accord has been a long time coming. From behind the wheel, it couldn’t get here soon enough. The way Honda talks about development for its 10th-generation mid-size sedan, it’s an attempt to right the wrongs from the previous two generations. Five years ago, we...Read More»

2018 Jaguar XJR575
2018 Jaguar XJ

The 2018 Jaguar XJ is the British automaker's flagship luxury sedan, and the car that leads the way for the brand’s styling direction. It cuts a striking shape on the outside, and is luxurious though a bit blingy on the inside. It stands out among full-size luxury sedans for its...Read More»

2018 Land Rover Discovery
2018 Land Rover Discovery

The 2018 Land Rover Discovery begs to explore. Beyond the literal meaning, the big SUV that was rebooted last year is impressively spacious, capable, composed, and somewhat inconspicuous. It carries over essentially unchanged from last year’s new model, and earns an impressive 7.4...Read More»
