That’s So Gay: 2013 Lexus RX350

2013 is proving to be the year of the LGBT. The U.S Supreme Court can’t stop talking about us, and neither can liberal Washington or intolerant Washington. Everywhere you look, there are “known homosexuals”, as the more flamboyant of us were called generations ago. Heck, we even have an openly gay NBA player to look up to (literally, at seven feet). Indeed, we are the new ‘it’ girl of the post-Law and Order generation. [...]

2013 Lexus RX350 F-Sport: When Did SUVs Get So S&M?

Now, you may think an SUV that costs this much must have all the utility of a Victoria Beckham Range Rover Evoque Special Edition with Pink Diamond inlayed wheels — but you’d be wrong. This Lexus offers 40 cubic feet of space with the rear seats in place, doubling to 80 cubic feet when you fold the seats down. With that much room, you’ll be able to take your two 80-pound rescue dogs to the park and still have room for a Home Depot stop on the way home. (Just don’t leave the hounds in the car, please.)

2013 Lexus GS 350: Responsible Decadence

Lexus has always been about restrained decadence. It’s the luxury brand for those who want cocoons of excellence without the ostentatious flare of American and German marques. But like Audrey Hepburn in My Fair Lady or the clueless bros on Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, if you dress a Lexus in a new grille, slap on some alloys, and wire in LED taillamps, you get a hottie worth taking home. Re-designed for 2013, the Lexus GS rolls into its new skin. [...]

2012 Lexus CT200h: Great Car, But Engineers Need To Sweat The Details

Two of my favorite Lexus models of all time are the 2002 IS300 wagon and the current HS250h. The wagon was arguably ugly, but I liked the size, sporty feel, and impeccable build quality. It was also a little out of the Lexus mainstream, which added cachet. Despite its high price, the HS250h has a luxurious leather-lined cabin that also taps the tech genies for a powerful hybrid system, heads-up display, lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control, and a space shuttle’s worth of toys. Put them together, and you get something like the CT200h. [...]

2013 Lexus GS: First Drive

Lexus wants to add some dynamism and excitement to its lineup, beginning with the luxury sedan it hopes is ready to take on German rivals head-to-head. The 2013 Lexus GS represents the Japanese luxury brand’s new focus on driving dynamics, along with a new design that will migrate to the rest of the lineup. And frankly speaking, it’s the GS’s bold grille that could take the most getting used to. [...]
