Why lease a Lexus?
Lexus is the luxury vehicle sector for the Japanese car manufacturers Toyota. It was first introduced to the roads in 1989 and since then has become the largest selling company for premium branded cars worldwide.
Lexus pride themselves on a few very important design principles, or "L-Finesse": leading-edge design and technology applied with finesse - meaning seamless anticipation, incisive simplicity and intriguing elegance = the Lexus philosophy. They combine traditional Japanese mentality with their premium cars to deliver a technologically advanced yet humanised vehicle and to create a striking design but still be artistic yet unpretentious.
Earlier in the year Lexus launched the RX on the European market, their new SUV, and it has helped the brand as a whole more than double their European sales. It has a very unique exterior design making it very noticeable, but inside it keeps within the up-market feel of previous Lexus models. It is a hybrid car and can go for a few miles on all-electric power, making it impressively efficient around urban areas. The car is said to feel more like one of the brands traditional luxury saloons. That means it has big comfortable seats that are really supportive, shiny wood veneers, soft leather and a large analogue clock. Apparently, few if any SUVs are this well-built. Some stats for performance context - acceleration 0-62mph - 7.7 secopnds, Maximum speed is 124mph, Fuel Economy Combined - 54.3mpg and CO2 combined - 120g/km.
Lexus have also just premiered their new sports car - the LC 500. So we'll give you some specs to give you an idea of the performance of this amazing hybrid car. Acceleration from 0-62mph takes less than 4.5 seconds and the top speed of the car is to be confirmed still along with fuel economy and CO2 emissions figures. Keep a look out for more information releases.
