Lexus

Lexus expertly combines superb craftsmanship and exaggerated styling throughout its diverse lineup. It functions as the luxury division of the well-known Japanese automaker—Toyota—but with significantly higher levels of character and desirability. Although its reputation was built on full-size luxury cars such as the sophisticated LS sedan, the company grew thanks to popular SUVs such as the original Lexus RX. The sporty IS sedan and subcompact UX crossover represent the most affordable models while the RC luxury coupe and stunning LC, which we named one of the best coupes, will satisfy the enthusiast crowd.
