Lexus CT 200h Named Favorite Hybrid by Northwest Automotive Press Association

Stylish Exterior Design and Efficient Hybrid Engine Make the 2014 CT 200h a Favorite at Drive Revolution Event

With a fun and stylish exterior and a remarkable EPA-estimated 42 mpg combined fuel economy rating, it’s no surprise that the 2014 Lexus CT 200h was named Favorite Hybrid at the Northwest Automotive Press Association’s (NWAPA) Drive Revolution event last week in Portland.

During NWAPA’s annual summer event, journalists gathered to assess the green vehicle market, learn and engage about upcoming technology and to share what’s worked in the Pacific Northwest with the rest of the nation. The two-day event featured vehicle presentations and a focused media ride-and-drive session for journalists to experience driving each vehicle as well as learn each unique technology.

The CT 200h was chosen for its impressive combination of state-of-the-art small car luxury and hybrid technology, according to NWAPA President Nik Miles.

“With six hybrid vehicles in our Lexus lineup, the most of any luxury brand, we are naturally thrilled to be recognized with this honor from NWAPA,” said Michael Bevan, General Manager, Lexus Western Area. “We appreciate that drivers in the Pacific Northwest want a compact luxury vehicle that is both fun to drive and highly efficient – the CT 200h really delivers on all fronts.”

Lexus NX Compact Luxury-Utility

All-New Lexus NX Compact Luxury-Utility Combines Breakthrough Design and Choice of Turbo or Hybrid Power

All-New Lexus NX Compact Luxury-Utility Combines Breakthrough Design and Choice of Turbo or Hybrid Power

 

Lexus created the luxury-utility crossover category with the original midsized RX model in 1998 and is now poised to disrupt the growing compact segment with the all-new 2015 NX. Inspired by performance vehicles, the 2015 NX unites the engineering input of racers with the impeccable touch of Lexus luxury in a design that steals the show.

Following in the tire tracks of the new-generation Lexus GS and IS sedans, the 2015 NX brings dramatic design to a segment populated by boxy offerings. The boldest interpretation yet of the signature Lexus spindle grille and L-finesse design envelops a platform engineered by a team that includes active racers.

The 2015 Lexus NX debuts in two versions, the NX 200t with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine and the NX 300h hybrid, which brings the brand’s number of hybrid offerings to six, the most among luxury brands. The hybrid offers a real driving kick, thanks to a new transmission with a kick-down function. The racers on the team insisted on splitting the hybrid battery into two separate pods for better weight distribution; with the benefit of more efficient use of cabin space.

Both NX models offer their own version of pro-active all-weather drive (AWD).

Looking more sports-car than sport-utility, the 2015 NX’s cabin is bristling with new, onboard, standard and available technology, including a Lexus-first Wireless Charging Tray for compatible phones and devices; the new Lexus Remote Touch Interface (RTI) with a touch pad; and a comprehensive Multi-information Display that features a Lexus-first G-Force meter and boost gauge.

Lexus IS Models Pull Major Upset in Sport Sedan Segment

By | Lexus Cars, Lexus News | No Comments

Delighting enthusiast drivers and luxury connoisseurs alike, the third-generation Lexus IS models continue to upset the balance of power among sport sedans for 2015, their sophomore season.

The IS 250 and IS 350 models convey an aggressive yet elegant presence with the brand’s unmistakable spindle grille, L-theme LED daytime running lights and dynamic bodylines. The all-V6 lineup incudes the choice of 204-hp and 306-hp powertrains, with rear-wheel drive or all-weather drive. In both, silken power delivery combines with multi-link rear suspension and finely tuned electronic power steering derived from the Lexus GS sedan to deliver a rousing driving experience.

At the same time, the brand’s hallmark luxury and sumptuous appointments remains intact, bolstered by cutting-edge multi-media.

The Lexus IS features a host of upgrades for 2015, including new LED fog lights and numerous cabin enhancements. Reflecting the popularity of the all-weather drive (AWD) system in colder climates, a heated steering wheel is available for AWD models. The F SPORT package now includes heated/ventilated front seats and F SPORT AWD models also get the heated steering wheel.
The standard backup monitor adds dynamic gridlines for 2015, helping to make parking maneuvers easier and safe.
