Lexus is an excellent example of how technologically-advanced luxury vehicles can also be very reliable. In fact, every model has above- or well-above-average predicted reliability, according to our survey. Interiors are mostly well-finished, the engines are smooth and fairly powerful, and hybrid models are very fuel efficient. Many core models, such as the ES sedan and RX SUV, score highly for owner satisfaction, though the small CT and IS don’t fare as well. The new NX small SUV is an attempt to inject style and sportiness into a bland lineup. The GS sedan, though competitive, hasn’t been a sales success. The old-school GX and LX SUVs are outdated.
