2021 Lexus RX 350 AWD F SPORT l Review

2021 Lexus RX 350 AWD F SPORT

Hi Hooniverse! It’s me, Will. I know, I just reviewed a Lamborghini Urus but you should really check out this RX 350 F Sport too! I mean, they are basically the same color, that is about where the similarities end though. Still, for the average car consumer, this Lexus is way more attainable. Plus, it’s […]

2021 Lexus NX 300h l Review

2021 Lexus NX 300h

Do something right in the automotive world and you’ll quickly be asked to do it again, but this time smaller. Or perhaps larger. The original Lexus RX was a pioneer in the luxury crossover world. It brought Toyota reliability with an upscale interior. That’s not why I brought you, dear reader, to this little corner […]

2021 Lexus LS 500 | Review

2021 Lexus LS 500 | Review

There’s something to be said for having, or at least aspiring to have, “the best” of anything. Edward Lewis (played by Richard Gere) in the movie Pretty Woman was asked “why do you have the penthouse if you’re scared of heights”. He astutely responded, “because it’s the best”. Aside from the achingly pretty LC500 coupe […]

2021 Lexus ES 250 AWD | Review

2021 Lexus ES 250 AWD

The Lexus ES has a rather beige history. Dating back to 1989, it was typically just seen as Lexus’ version of the Camry. Not a bad thing, but certainly a bit beige if I’m honest. If you wanted a “good car” with a bit of luxury, it was a solid choice. But the front-engine, front-wheel-drive […]

2021 Lexus RC-F Fuji Speedway Edition – Sports Car or Grand Tourer?

The Lexus RC-F exists in a space somewhere between a sports car and a grand tourer, and the Fuji Speedway Edition attempts to push the needle closer to the sports car side of the equation. It’s a limited-edition machine with polarizing style that produces tremendous noise. Is it worth $100k? Lexus only needs 60 hand […]

2020 Lexus LX 570 – The $103,224 Thirteen Year Old

2020 Lexus LX 570

Six-figure vehicles are an interesting segment of the automotive world. On a daily basis, unless you live in a fairly affluent area, you won’t see that many on the road. Well, unless you live in Miami, whereas renowned poet William Smith said “Hundred-thousand dollar cars, e’ybody got em”. I would say that even around Washington […]

2021 Lexus LC 500 Convertible Inspiration Series: Daaaaaamn

2021 Lexus LC 500 Convertible Inspiration Series

The Hooniverse staff (squad?…crew?) are privileged to get access to some pretty impressive machines, but occasionally one of them just feels legitimately special. Even in standard trim, the Lexus LC 500 convertible is one of those cars. Jeff got a chance to test it out it last month, and I just had a go in […]

2020 Lexus GS F-Sport: The End Of An Era

There are three overriding memories from attending the launch of the current generation Lexus GS in Las Vegas. Number one was the Mandarin Oriental where we stayed, though for less than 48 hours. Number two, being driven for three laps on the infield course at Las Vegas Motor Speedway by Jon Capps in an LFA. […]

2021 Lexus LC500 Convertible – First Drive Review

The 2021 Lexus LC500 Convertible is a drop-top work of art. Sure, we prefer the coupe version because it’s nice having a roof over one’s head, but it’s hard to argue with the NOISE the Convertible lets in. That noise comes courtesy of a 471-horsepower 5.0-liter naturally aspirated V8 engine. And it helps push both […]

2020 Lexus RX450h – Fisher & Paykel Edition

Preamble The contrast couldn’t have been more different.  When the people at DriveShop dropped off this RX450h, they were picking up the Toyota Land Cruiser Heritage Edition.  From old school V8, body-on-frame with a real locking center differential, to a 21st Century unibody soft-roader with a hybrid drivetrain. I’ll be honest.  For the first two […]
