Lexus is the luxury division of Toyota, producing vehicles known for their quiet and refined interiors and comfortable rides. This year, Lexus has produced a new 241-hp, turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine and a new 255-hp, 3.5-liter V-6 engine, which can be found in 200t and 300 models across the lineup. The ES-series also received updated exterior styling and interior materials.
The CT 200h is the fuel-efficient, entry-level hybrid model in the Lexus lineup. It comes with a 98-hp, 1.8-liter 4-cylinder with an electronic drive system. It has a slightly lower base price point for this year.
The two-door RC-series sport coupe gains two new models: the RC 200t and RC 300. The RC200t is the entry-level, base model, which comes with the new turbo 2.0-liter engine. One step up, the new RC 300 has the new 3.5-liter V-6. The RC 350 and RC F also make their return. F Sport performance versions are available for all RC models minus the RC F.
While Lexus has discontinued the IS 250, the IS-series also gets two new models: the IS 200t and the IS 300. Like the RC, these models have the new engines and optional F Sport versions as well. The IS 350 remains available.
The ES-series is the mid-size luxury sedan in the Lexus lineup. The ES 300h and ES 350 models has a more dramatic appearance that matches Lexus’ “L finesse” design language. Lexus has also updated the interior with more premium materials.
Looking for a more fun sedan to drive? The GS-series line of sport sedans has received an aggressive, front-end facelift. A new GS 200t model is available as well as the GS 350 and GS 450h.
The grandest of Lexus’ luxury passenger cars is the flagship LS 460. It comes in standard and long wheelbases. It has received an enhanced infotainment system with full-screen navigation.
Entering the compact luxury SUV market, NX offers seating for 5 passengers. The NX 200t and NX 300h gain the subscription-based Lexus Enform Remote services, which include stolen vehicle location, emergency assistance, roadside assistance, and automatic collision notification.
The larger RX 350 has been redesigned. It features bold, aggressive exterior styling and additional interior color choices. Available on the RX 350 for the first time is the Safety System Plus, which can help avoid or mitigate collisions across a range of vehicle speeds under certain conditions.
For even bigger families, the 7-passenger GX 460 comes with a beefy 301-hp, 4.6-liter V-8 engine mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission and full-time 4-wheel drive. It also gets the Lexus Enform Remote Service for the first time.
The mammoth LX 570 has a refreshed interior that seats 8 passengers. The starting price is slightly higher for this year.
