When Toyota launched a luxury brand most of us had a quiet laugh. Any Italian – and quite a few Brits, eh Jaguar? – will tell you it takes more than just building superbly engineered, class-beatingly refined, smoothly powered, ergonomically perfect… hang on a minute. This is going to work, isn’t it?

    Lexus CT200h

    £21,995 - £30,995

    CT 200h

    To call this a posh Prius may sound a little harsh, but that’s what it is.

  • 5/10
    Lexus GS

    £31,495 - £50,995


    If you can live without diesel, this is a smart new A6 alternative.

  • 6/10
    Lexus IS

    £26,495 - £58,416


    Hard to recommend unless you crave being different. Drivetrain at odds with sporty chassis.

    Lexus IS-F

    IS F

    The first-ever Lexus with soul? The IS-F is a genuinely rival for the BMW M3, Audi RS4 and Merc C63. Now that’s a compliment…

  • 6/10
    Lexus LS

    £89,265 - £98,715

    LS 600h

    The LS600h is four-wheel drive, has a CVT gearbox and a Hybrid Synergy Drive electric motor. Despite all the cool stuff, it handles like a dead badger. Approach a corner at anything like an enthusiastic speed and the LS600h understeers itself straight into the arms of its myriad electronic minders and bongs mournfully at the mistreatment

  • 5/10
    Lexus RX

    £44,495 - £55,495


    If you're an undemanding driver, meet the least intimidating SUV. It's simple to drive and rather dull.
