2017 Lexus ES 300h Named Best Overall Value Premium Vehicle

2017 Lexus ES 300h Named Best Overall Value Premium Vehicle

By | Lexus News | No Comments

2017 Lexus ES 300h Named Best Overall Value Premium Vehicle! Recently, the 2017 Lexus ES 300h was named the 2017 Best Overall Value Premium Vehicle and the 2017 Best Overall Value Premium Passenger Car by MotorTrend’s IntelliChoice. The annual awards identify the vehicles with the lowest total cost to own and operate over the first five years of ownership, selected from nearly 2,300 domestic and import 2017 model-year vehicles. According to the website, “IntelliChoice’s BOVY awards represent the oldest and most recognized automotive data analysis focused solely on identifying vehicles that will cost significantly less to own than other vehicles in their respective class.”

Motor Trend writes about the 2017 Lexus ES 300h, “The Lexus ES 30oh was refreshed for the 2016 model year, and we haven’t driven it since it was last updated. But in a 2013 First Test, we noted that the the ES 300h offers plenty of power to go with its excellent fuel economy ratings and becomes more responsive when the drive mode selector is set to Sport mode. We noted in a 2013 First Drive that the ES 300h’s interior featured LS-like materials that lent it an upscale feel, especially with the available perforated leather upholstery. There’s even real contrast stitching on the dash, which is hand-sewn for a more premium appearance.”

The 2017 Lexus NX was named the Best Overall Value of the Year in the Premium Compact Utility Category. The Motor Trend editor shares, “In a recent Motor Trend Big Test comparison against other luxury compact crossovers, the Lexus NX 200t F Sport took the title, thanks to its well-rounded package. We said that its engine sounds great with the throttle wide open, especially when in Sport mode. It offers a good cost of ownership, great interior, and strong driving dynamics.Even though the NX 200t may be based off the Toyota Rav4, its ride quality sets it apart from its sibling and much of its competition. In a First Drive review, we said the steering was properly weighted and lively, gripping the road in fast turns, with a brake feel that inspires confidence. With the automaker’s reputation for reliability, the sharp exterior and luxurious interior styling, and level of technology, the NX will likely continue to be a success for the next few years.”

Lexus Tops Vehicle Dependability Study by J.D. Power for 6th Year

Lexus Tops Vehicle Dependability Study by J.D. Power for 6th Year

By | Lexus News | No Comments

Lexus Tops Vehicle Dependability Study by J.D. Power for 6th Year! This marks the 6th consecutive year that the Lexus brand has captured the highest ranking in vehicle dependability by the experts at J.D. Power. The brand also won in three segments: The Lexus ES ranked highest for Compact Premium Cars, the Lexus RX was named the top Midsize Premium SUV, and the Lexus GS led the Midsize Premium Cars. 

The winners are chosen each year after a study is conducted that measures the number of owner-reported problems of 2014 model year vehicles in their third-year of ownership.  According to J.D. Powers, “The Vehicle Dependability Study (VDS) examines issues reported by original owners of 3-year-old vehicles. This study measures car reliability by analyzing problems experienced over the past 12 months of ownership in such areas as: features and controls; engine and transmission;entertainment and navigation; heating and cooling; the overall driving experience, and more.”

Lexus LC 500 Named To Ward's "10 Best Interiors"

Lexus LC 500 Named To Ward’s “10 Best Interiors”

By | Lexus News | No Comments

Lexus LC 500 Named To Ward’s “10 Best Interiors”! The new Lexus LC 500 is breathtaking from the outside, but according to the editors at Ward’s the interior is also one of its best features. Each vehicle is evaluated on the tenants of aesthetic and design harmony, materials, ergonomics, safety, comfort, value and fit-and-finish and must be all-new or significantly redesigned for the U.S. market. The models are also tested for user-friendliness and evaluated based on how effectively vehicle information is communicated. 

“We always knew Lexus was capable of a breathtaking interior like we see now in the LC 500 and LC 500h hybrid,” said WardsAuto Senior Editor Tom Murphy. The color palette alone for this interior is striking, from the rich crimson “Rioja Red” to “Bespoke White,” which blends ivory, blue and orange for the customer who wants something truly unique. Our test model came with arguably the most conservative color scheme — caramel beige — and yet the design elements, such as the dramatic door trim with grooves that flow like drapery, immediately won over our judges. We hope Lexus keeps pushing these stylistic boundaries.”

“Since the concept LF-LC was introduced five years ago – a concept car come to life – there has been nothing but excitement and anticipation for the production LC,” said Jeff Bracken, group vice president and general manager, Lexus. “Working closely with the engineering team, LC designers pursued new means to redefine Lexus style with a dynamic look and the brand’s signature attention to detail. We are greatly honored to have their work recognized by the editors at WardsAuto with this highly regarded award.”

We just go this new model in last week! Stop in to test drive it today. For more Wilde Lexus news, Follow us on Twitter or Like us on Facebook.
