From sedans to SUVs to convertibles to coupes, Lexus has been designing top-selling vehicles since 1989. Popular around the world, Lexus is in the Top 100 Global Brands of all-time. This post takes a look at the top 5 Lexus vehicles of all time.
5. Lexus CT 200H
The Lexus CT model debuted in 2010, and is one of the world’s best hybrid electric vehicles. A sport compact hatchback, this savvy ride started selling in 2011. CT stands for Creative Touring, and the vehicle offers hybrid performance equivalent to a conventional 2.0 liter engine (thus the 200H).
Powered by electric motors, the CT 200H operates with a 1.8 liter VVT-I four cylinder gasoline engine found in the Toyota Auris and Prius as well, producing up to 134 hp.
With four driving modes (Normal, Sport, EV, and eco) and excellent safety features, the Lexus CT 200H is an incredible hybrid vehicle choice. The CT 200H’s price tag averages about $31,250.
4. Lexus RX
The Lexus RX has been on the market for over twenty years. This mid-size luxury crossover SUV initially housed a 3.0-liter V6 engine and 4 speed automatic transmission. The model’s fourth generation was introduced in 2015 and houses a 3.5 V6 gasoline engine and 8 speed automatic transmission, giving a combined power of 308 horses!
The RX offers two options when it comes to seating – the three-row L model or the two-row L models. It is also available in a hybrid variety.
The Lexus RX is the best-selling midsize luxury SUV in America, with a price tag starting at $49,995 ($57,000 for the hybrid).
3. Lexus GX
Debuting in 2002, the Lexus GX is a luxury midsize SUV fitted with the same 4.7 liter V8 gasoline engine found in Lexus’s larger SUV, the LX 470. Equipped with a five speed automatic transmission and 4WD, the GX produces about 301 hp.
The GX accommodates up to seven passengers and is loaded with safety features. These safety features include active knee and head airbags, lane departure warning system, and driver monitoring controls.
Similar in front styling to the Toyota Prado, the GX is a powerful, rugged looking SUV starting at a price of $62,155.
2. Lexus HS 250H
The Lexus HS 250H entered production in 2009. A hybrid compact sedan, this vehicle is similar to Toyota’s Avensis. With a 2.4 liter 2AZ-FXE inline four engine and electric generator, the HS 250H produces 187 hp.
Another cool feature of the Lexus HS 250H is the exhaust heat recovery system. This system helps in cooling the engine. This feature, combined with countless other luxury and safety features makes the HS 250H a top selling Lexus. Starting price: $35,000.
1. Lexus IS XE20
This four sedan has been on the market since 2006. With a V6 gasoline engine, a high resolution 7 inch (17.78 cm) touchscreen navigation system, adaptive front lighting system, dynamic radar cruise control, and more, the IS XE20 is a crowd pleaser. Luxurious leather seats, electroluminescent display lighting, and a price tag of around $38,000 make this elegant vehicle an excellent, practical choice.
