  • Lexus IS best-selling compact luxury sedan in the Philippines in 2022

    The BMW 3 Series has long been the benchmark for compact luxury sedans, combining superb driving dynamics with German refinement and quality. But in the Philippines, one rival beat out the 3 Series in the sales stakes. And it comes from Japan. Lexus Philippines said in a February 2023 press statement that the Lexus IS was the country’s best-selling model in its class in 2022, according to data from the Chamber of Automotive Manufacturers of the Philippines Inc. (CAMPI). “Since the debut of its f

    Ever wanted to own a brand-new luxury car, but you’re not keen on paying too much for a model that you plan to replace in a few years? Lexus Philippines may have something that would work for you. The Japanese carmaker announced in a December 2022 press statement that the Lexus IS and ES sedans, along with the NX and RX crossovers, can be leased through Toyota Financial Services' “KINTO One” program.

  • Lexus Driving Signature: Will It Make You a Better Driver?

    Isn't it quite ironic that many car companies nowadays are more focused on providing the latest touchscreen controls, comfort features, cameras, and even electronic nannies and engine efficiency innovations rather than making their cars more satisfying to drive? Fortunately, there are a number of brands that still think that the act of driving should be an art. For them, driving refinement is a continuous process for improvement. And despite some of them providing luxury-levels of comfort and co

  • The 2021 Lexus IS 500 is a massive middle-finger to the Mercedes C-Class

    Scaling down. It may be a messy word to numerous car devotees, but clearly unavoidable. Indeed purveyors of expansive motors, Mercedes-AMG, as of late announced that its respected 4.0-litre, twin turbo V8 engines will be supplanted with hybrid 4-cylinder ones. Very a stun to the framework, yes. If you, like me, lived through the late 1980s and entire 1990s, you'd know that premium and performance cars of that era mostly came with large-capacity engines. 2.0-litre engines? That was the minimum en

    According to Japan’s BestCarWeb, the next-generation Lexus IS will be a pure-electric (EV) model. It will reportedly make its debut in 2025. Recall that late last year, Toyota announced its range of EV models to be launched by 2030, which includes Lexus’ EV models. Amongst them is the Lexus Electrified Sedan and BestCarWeb believes that it is the basis for the next-generation Lexus IS. Further details are scarce and entirely speculative, but BestCarWeb claims that the next-generation Lexus IS wi
