Spark of Electric Lex – Lexus RZ450e Dynamic Review

The Lexus RZ was a bit of a milestone when it was unveiled last year. The first all-electric offering from a brand which has always been obsessed with “the pursuit of perfection” I attended the nationwide launch of the RZ family last year and spent a week with the base RZ450e Core before Christmas and, […]

Lex-tended and Lex-urious UX – 2024 Lexus UX 300e Limited review

2024 Lexus UX300e review NZ

The UX 300e, Lexus’ first all-electric model has been given a refresh, including more range and more safety, but as expected, it retains all its Lexus luxury and refinement. We took it for a spin to check out the improvements. It was way back in January 2022 when we last got behind the wheel of […]

Taking the reins of the new 2024 Lexus RX

2024 Lexus RX review NZ

Hot on the heels of the New Zealand launch of the latest generation RX, Lexus felt we should get better acquainted with both their 350h and 500h F-Sport models, who were we to disagree. And to add to the experience, our 500 came with a very special copper covering. It’s the new Lexus RX 500h […]

X and Y Z – Lexus RX and RZ first drives

Lexus RX and RZ review NZ

There is something rather special about driving around the deep dark south of New Zealand, the endless flowing curves, the unpredictable gradients and cambers, and the long stretches of traffic-free tarmac that head towards a backdrop of the snow-peaked southern alps. In fact, the only thing that can make the experience better is when you’re […]

Luxury Express – 2022 Lexus LX500d Limited Review

Over the years, Lexus have been, little by little, moving the LX away from being less of a rebadged Toyota Land Cruiser, to a more bespoke luxury SUV. Fast forward to now, and the fourth generation LX is with us. While it is a bit of a dark horse in the family, the new LX500d […]

Luxury Leviathan – 2022 Lexus LX500d F Sport Review

Dignified Sophistication. This is how Lexus refers to the latest incarnation of its largest SUV, the LX. Now into its fourth generation, the LX is very much a different beast to the ones before it. Petrol variants are now a thing of the past and the old V8 has also been laid out to pasture. […]

Lex Luthor – 2022 Lexus NX450h F-Sport PHEV Review

In the world of comic book villains, Lex Luthor is a formidable foe. His supreme intellect, wealth and access to a barrage of technical weapons and gadgets has kept Superman on his toes on more than one occasion. To keep Supes and his fellow Justice League members at bay, Lex Luthor must constantly upgrade his […]

Apex Lex – 2022 Lexus LX 500d review

2022 Lexus LX 500d review NZ

In 1996, premium automotive brand Lexus launched their largest and most expensive luxury SUV, the LX 450. This was followed by the second generation (LX470) in ‘98 and a third in ‘07. Well now there’s a fourth generation (LX 500d) in town, well two in fact, and Lexus New Zealand let us try them both […]

Luxury Underdog: 2022 Lexus ES300h Limited Review

The Lexus ES300h has been something of a dark horse for the premium Japanese brand. For some time it has been in the shadow of SUVs in the Lexus family but still manages to soldier on. There is a good reason for this too. I think the ES is one of the most underrated cars […]

Lexus New Zealand Launches New NX and LX SUVs

Lexus New Zealand have launched their latest generation NX and LX luxury SUVs online.
