Colourful character in a muted part of the market
Honda's back at the grown-up's table. The new NSX is an outstanding supercar.
Bold and beautiful: the Lexus LC is the maddest Lexus since the LFA, and backs it up with impressive dynamics for a heavy car… so long as you buy the V8, not the hybrid.
All-new CR-V is a big step up. Not perfect, but a worthy rival to the best in this class
Lexus makes a proper alternative to the default German premium SUVs, so long as you prefer efficiency and comfort to outright performance
The Civic Tourer’s all about one thing: space. Want more than one thing? Consider a Golf Estate.
Not as good to drive as we hoped, but the interior design and space makes up for it. Solid effort
Not sexy, not fun, not a heartstring-tugger, but by gum is this a clever car. Brilliantly fit for purpose
Every Lexus trait wrapped up in a tight 3 Series sized package. Superb design, forgettable to drive, probably quite nice to own.
Not the M4 rival Lexus (and we) would like, but still has appeal.
Not all that sharp to drive but it’s comfy and striking. For some, that will be enough.
22nd Century limo looks, stunted by 1980s powertrain response. The ultimate left-field choice...
Lexus makes a posh compact SUV but forgets to make it drive well.
Expensive to buy, expensive to own. Rationalists, look elsewhere; LS is outpaced by newer, greener, cheaper rivals.
To call this a posh Prius may sound a little harsh, but that’s what it is.
