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 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 LC 500
2018 Lexus LC

If you remember the very first days of Lexus, you remember the clever ads: the champagne glasses on the hood of the car, the ball bearing rolling down its hood, the "relentless pursuit of perfection." Forget it all. Now Lexus is chasing after world-class luxury and performance with big...Read More»

2018 Lexus LS 500 F Sport
2018 Lexus LS 500

Pour one out for the sedan. While SUV sales power the car industry, traditional four-doors have wilted on the sales charts, save for a stalwart or two. The 2018 Lexus LS bows on that crowded stage. For its breakthrough moment, the LS breaks down what it’s stood for in the past...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 RX L
2018 Lexus RX

The Lexus RX has been standard-issue equipment in mid- to upper-middle class neighborhoods. It's surprising that it wasn't sold with an HOA and membership dues. Until now. Two years ago, Lexus struck out of the tract-home mold and wants to attract defectors who've left for sport-tuned...Read More»

2018 Lexus IS 350 F Sport
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 Nissan Pathfinder
2018 Nissan Pathfinder

If there were any confusion as to the 2018 Nissan Pathfinder’s mission, it should be clear this year. The big, seven-seater adds a rear-seat alert to remind parents (children or fur parents) to check the back seats before leaving the car and standard automatic emergency braking on...Read More»

2018 Nissan 370Z
2018 Nissan 370Z

The 2018 Nissan 370Z is a pure two-seater sports car without room for interpretation. Have you seen that cockpit? That’s just fine by us, we prefer fun when it’s unfettered by logic. This year the venerable Z returns with a very mild makeover—new lights, rear bumper...Read More»

2018 Nissan Armada Platinum Reserve
2018 Nissan Armada

The 2018 Nissan Armada is a full-size, family-oriented three-row SUV that offers enough room inside for an entire army of rugrats. The Armada is a kissing-cousin to the Infiniti QX80, so it feels something like a watered-down luxury SUV. That’s all right with us, especially since...Read More»

2018 Nissan Altima
2018 Nissan Altima

The 2018 Nissan Altima will go down as one of the best-selling family sedans of its time.* There’s an asterisk, of course. Crossovers are the new family cars, and the Altima doesn’t have much in the way of ground clearance or all-wheel drive. It sells well, but it’s...Read More»
