Launched in 1989, Lexus is the luxury car division of Toyota, and is Japan’s largest manufacturer of luxury cars. Lexuses are renowned for the level of comfort and luxury they provide, not to mention their legendary reliability.
The Lexus IS, introduced in 1999, is Lexus’s answer to the BMW 3 Series and the Audi A4. A compact executive car, the IS offers good performance, stylish looks and rock-solid reliability, making it an excellent choice on the used car market. The second-generation model, launched in 2005, is even better.
Launched back in 1991, the Lexus GS is the company’s medium-sized executive car, designed to compete with the BMW 5 Series and the Audi A6. New models were introduced in 1997, 2004 and 2011, and the GS remains a popular choice on the second-hand market due to its luxury, reliability and classy image.
The Lexus LS was the first car Lexus sold in the UK, and is the company’s flagship luxury car. Launched in 1989, new models were introduced in 1994, 2000, 2006 and 2012, and the LS remains one of the most sumptuous and luxurious cars on the road. Don’t expect the levels of prestige you get from, say, a Mercedes S-Class, but don’t discount the LS on this alone. Running costs will be very high but used prices are low, making the LS a clever second-hand buy.
The CT is Lexus’s first foray into the family hatchback market. Launched in 2010, the CT offers legendary Lexus reliability in a small and compact package, making it a good used choice for those looking for a cheap way into Lexus ownership.
Other popular used models in the Lexus line-up include the SC roadster and the RX 4×4 SUV.
