Lexus can boast 13 standard models and additional hybrid options to choose from. If you can’t decide which Lexus luxury sedan or crossover will be your best fit, check our comprehensive used Lexus cars guide.

Below you will find the basic information about Lexus car models.

Lexus CT

The Lexus CT is a hybrid compact car of the Japanese company, one of the youngest Lexus models, as it was introduced to the public in 2010. In 2013, the model underwent a significant restyling, as a result of which it received new electronics and an upgraded suspension. 

Lexus HS

The Lexus HS is a mid-size hybrid of the Japanese concern. An official presentation took place in 2009. The Lexus HS is very popular in the Japanese market, but in the United States is not very much in demand due to the imperfection of the software, which is why, in 2010, the manufacturer recalled about 18 thousand units.

Lexus GS

The Lexus GS is the first hybrid business-class sedan in the history of the Lexus brand sold in Europe since 2006. The acceleration time from zero to sixty miles is 5.9 seconds, and fuel consumption in mixed mode - 7.9 liters. Innovative developments in environmental friendliness allowed Japanese developers to achieve the lowest level of CO2 emissions in the class at that time.

Lexus IS

The Lexus IS is a business-class sports car launched in 1998. Initially, the car was produced under the name of Toyota Altezza, but after entering the European market in 1999, they began to advertise it as the Lexus IS.

Lexus RC

The Lexus RC is a compact coupe launched in 2014. In parallel, the Japanese were releasing a sports version of the RC F. This Lexus model demonstrates high sales rates and is considered one of the most technically strong in its segment.

Lexus ES

Lexus ES is a business-class car, being in mass production since 1989. The ES model name stands for Executive Sedan, but some importers decipher it as an Elegant Sedan. 

The history of Lexus ES has seven generations and is rich in successes and falls. For example, in 2009, Toyota recalled part of a series of cars from the market due to a carpet defect, which could have been a potential cause of an accident. As a result, the model was honed to perfection. The Lexus ES sedan recently surpassed three million vehicles sold worldwide. The ES is currently the second best-selling Lexus behind the RX crossover, which has sold 3.6 million items worldwide.

The hybrid version of the ES 300h uses Lexus Hybrid Drive technology to combine a gasoline engine with an electric motor. This system delivers impressive performance and low fuel consumption.

Lexus LS

Lexus LS is a full-size executive class sedan, another old-timer of the Japanese company produced since 1989. Until 2008, it was on the list of the best-selling cars in the US, but the global financial crisis reduced sales by 42%. 

Perhaps no other car has revolutionized its class like the Lexus LS. The 1990 LS 400 became a luxury sensation, garnering critical acclaim. It impresses customers with new standards in comfort, engine, and transmission performance, as well as smoothness, quietness, quality, attention to detail, and reliability.

Drivers of premium sedans demand greater agility and dynamics without sacrificing comfort. This is one of those combinations that is the hardest to achieve. The new Lexus Global Platform for Premium Cars (GA-L) did the job perfectly. It debuted on the LC 500 coupe and, with a longer wheelbase, formed the basis of the new LS sedan. The LS Sedan is only available in a long wheelbase version To optimize the center of gravity and improve weight distribution.

Lexus LX

According to the brand manufacturer, the LX stands for Luxury Crossover. The Lexus LX is a full-size SUV based on the Toyota Land Cruiser 200. The car began rolling off the assembly line in 1996. This Lexus model is considered one of the safest in the J-segment. 

In 2015, the vehicle underwent deep restyling, which resulted in a new interior and an improved roof layout. The upgraded LX gained the recognition of brand fans and increased sales. 

Lexus GX

The Lexus GX, which stands for Grand Crossover, is a mid-size premium SUV that is a significant part of the Lexus model history. The design of the car is based on the Toyota Land Cruiser Prado platform. The first generation was introduced in 2002. 

When you compare Lexus SUVs, you'll find that they are slightly different. They provide the same kind of luxury, but the Lexus GX is a smaller vehicle with less engine power and towing capacity than the Lexus LX.

Lexus NX

The Lexus NX, “Nimble Crossover”, is a compact premium vehicle that went on sale in the fall of 2014. This Lexus model is considered one of the most powerful in the class and boasts a high safety level. For fans of high-speed driving, the F Sport package is offered, which includes more streamlined body elements and upgraded shock absorbers.

Lexus RX

The Lexus RX is a mid-size premium crossover that went into series production in 1998. The RX name means Radiant Crossover and represents the bright future Lexus envisioned at the model's launch. In 2015, the third-generation model was introduced. Since 2010, more than 800,000 Lexus RX vehicles have been sold in the US market alone. 

Lexus UX

Lexus UX is a front-wheel drive crossover. The first generation was shown to motorists in the spring of 2018. Lexus UX is the youngest model of Lexus. The main task of the car is to impose worthy competition on the European market for the BMW X1 and Audi Q3.

Lexus Models: Optimistic About the Future

The history of the Lexus brand continues with great success, which cannot but please the loyal fans of the Japanese company. The Lexus division has long been a serious player in the global market, although initially, few people believed in this project, and most experts argued that the new product was unlikely to be in demand outside of Japan.

History: Is Lexus a Brand of Toyota?

Lexus is a Japanese automotive company, one of the leaders in the industry. It is the official division of Toyota Motors Corporation. The company specializes in the production of premium cars. The main sales market for the products is the USA.

The history of the Lexus brand dates back to 1983. At that time, the head of the Toyota Corporation was the legendary Eiji Toyoda. He became the main initiator of the director's board meeting, which discussed a competitive premium class model creation. At the beginning of the 80s, the world market saw a slow but steady increase in demand for luxury cars, and Toyoda decided to use this to expand the concern. As a result of the meeting, they decided to create a new brand.

In 1986, the advertising agency Saatchi & Saatchi, promoting a new premium brand, looked at over 200 titles and chose the one we know today. Therefore, it is probably more correct to start counting the history of Lexus from 1986.

Today, buyers of Lexus cars can be sure of time-proven reliability and stable demand when the resale time comes. Choosing a used model is a good opportunity for US buyers to get premium quality for a fraction of the price.
