In 2015 Lexus was briefly back in the race, thanks to the introduction of the NX compact crossover, but the Germans once again pulled ahead. Lexus has also switched from its somewhat bland styling to a bold fascia, called spindle grille, and which hasn’t been received with unanimous praise from the press and public, but which also doesn’t seem to hurt its sales.

Currently all of Lexus’s models for the US market are imported from Japan, with the exception of the RX, which is also produced in Cambridge, Ontario for North America, and the ES which is produced in Georgetown, Kentucky. The RX midsized crossover is Lexus’s best selling model in the United States, while the ES midsized car is the most popular sedan in the line-up.

The Lexus marque is marketed in over 70 countries and territories worldwide, and has ranked among the ten largest Japanese global brands in market value.

What makes Lexus cars special and popular is their focus on superior comfort and ergonomic design. Lexus strives to deliver the best luxury car experience, with the human element at the core of this goal. This means achieving a balance of form and function within the cabin to optimize comfort and efficiency. Only the best materials are used to assure luxurious seating, beautiful appointments and advanced, intuitive technology tools, from navigation to climate control to entertainment. The driver experience is carefully examined and fine-tuned from every aspect, with the placement, look, feel, shape and size of every amenity carefully considered for optimum comfort and efficiency.

As a result, Lexus has bagged a number of quality awards. In 2017, U.S. News & World Report named the Lexus RX the Best Luxury 2-Row SUV for the money. Lexus was named the Best Overall Luxury Brand and Most Trusted Luxury Brand by Kelley Blue Book Brand Image Awards for 2017 and 2016.
