Lexus model guide

What Lexus models are there?

The Lexus CT hatchback brings the economical hybrid engine from the Toyota Prius to a car that’s more luxurious and easier to park. It’s an alternative to the Audi A3, and will appeal if you want a cheap-to-run premium hatch.

The ES is the Japanese brand’s smaller saloon. It replaces the old GS and is an alternative to the BMW 5 Series and Mercedes E-Class. There’s no diesel option, though – the only choice is a frugal hybrid engine badged 350h. It’s no sports car, but instead excels at long motorway journeys and cosseting you in built-up traffic.

Despite looking like a sports car, the Lexus RC coupe is better at long-distance comfort than carving through a twisty B-road. If you spend a lot of time on the road and value stylish looks over outright practicality, the RC is a good option. Its hybrid engine manages around 40mpg, so it won’t be too expensive to run either – although there’s a socking great V8 petrol engine in the M3-rivalling RC F.


Which Lexus models are SUVs?

Lexus’ UX kicks off its SUV range, designed to indirectly replace the CT as the entry-level offering. It brings funkier, more modern styling with the SUV touches that buyers demand, but hasn’t moved the game on when it comes to practicality. The UX will suit you if you’re only occasionally transporting adults in the back seats, but it might feel a bit cramped if that’s a regular occurrence. The interior is mostly intuitive and is very well built.

Next up is the NX, a mid-size SUV that only comes as a hybrid. Like many Lexus models, it offers a comfortable and refined drive rather than any hint of sportiness – but you’re not often going to be flinging it through fast corners on the way to football practice or swimming lessons, are you? The NX is a lot bigger and more family-friendly than the UX, and provides an alternative to the Audi Q5.

The Lexus RX is the biggest SUV in the Lexus lineup. It looks very similar to the NX but can be identified by the triangular windows between the rear doors and the tailgate. The 3.5-litre engine and electric motor produce a lot of power, but the hybrid technology is there to reduce fuel consumption rather than give breathtaking acceleration. The resulting 45mpg fuel economy is pretty decent for a car of this size. There’s also a seven-seat version called the RX L.

FAQs

Globally, Lexus has built up a fantastic reputation for reliable cars. In a recent Driver Power owner survey, four of the top 10 most reliable cars were built by Lexus. Customers seem to like its dealerships when it’s time for a service, too.

At the moment there’s one Lexus electric car, the UX 300e. It offers a competitive 196-mile range from its 53.4kWh battery, and can be recharged to 80% at a 50kW public chargepoint in under an hour. Plugging in to a home wallbox, as most buyers will do, will fully recharge the battery in eight hours. 

The brand’s next EV is called the RZ 450e. It’s an SUV that’s designed to sit roughly in line with the RX, and is based on the Toyota bZ4X. As well as a 250-mile range and fast acceleration, the RZ can be had with a ‘yoke’ steering wheel like you’d find in an aircraft.

Takumi is a high-spec Lexus trim level with lots of fancy equipment. Typically, you get features like parking assistance, a sunroof and an upgraded Mark Levinson audio system. 

Lexus’ F-Sport models have sharper body kits and bigger wheels, like Audi S Line and Mercedes AMG Line cars. They’re a popular choice for UK buyers, although the bigger wheels and often firmed-up suspension may feel at odds with Lexus’ focus on comfort. On certain Lexus models, you can pick the F-Sport trim and the Takumi pack, which adds many of the luxury features from the trim level of the same name.

Lexus Link is a free app that you can download to your smartphone that connects to your car’s infotainment system. From your phone, you can locate your car in a car park, access driving analytics data, get service reminders and get tips on how to drive more economically.

Lexus sometimes calls its hybrid cars ‘self-charging’, because they don’t need to be plugged in to recharge. The battery is small enough to be topped up by the power generated when braking or slowing down, although of course you’ll still need to put petrol in the car.
