Lexus Makes a Point About Distracted Driving

Last week, Lexus launched a viral marketing campaign — that also makes for an excellent public service announcement — about how stupid it is to check your phone while driving. But it has only just started getting the kind of attention it deserves, now that some of the contentious regulatory news has subsided. The automaker modified a […] The post Lexus Makes a Point About Distracted Driving appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Lexus: Driving Disrupted

April is national Distracted Driving Awareness Month, so the brand wanted to bring awareness to safety behind the wheel by changing perceptions about texting and driving. The new video demonstrates exactly what happens when drivers can no longer see the road for 4.6 seconds. Participants get behind the wheel of a Lexus NX on a closed course, thinking they’re taking the vehicle for a routine test drive. What they don’t know is that they’re driving a one-of-a-kind specially modi...

Lexus Can Change Your Mind About Texting and Driving in 4.6 Seconds

In this video, participants take a Lexus NX on a closed course, thinking they’re going for a routine test drive.

2021 Buick Envision Overview: New Features, Luxury Trim Levels, Pricing Info & More

Forget what you know about the Buick Envision. The 2021 Buick Envision is a two-row, five-passenger SUV with almost nothing in common with its predecessors except its 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine. Engineers have completely rethought and reconfigured the Envision, certainly since its 2016 U.S. debut. When the Chinese-built, GM-name-plated Envision debuted in the U.S. that year, it was a spunky but small crossover that competed with the Kia Sportage and Honda CR-V. Buick’s 2021 Envision takes d...

U.S. Trademarks Show Hybrid, PHEV Bound for Next-gen Lexus NX

Overseas trademark applications are nice, but the significant differences between those markets and our own often make such appearances a harbinger of not much. Europe is far more likely to go green, while American buyers, depending on state, don’t see nearly as much punishment for choosing the least efficient models. Less taxation and far cheaper […] The post U.S. Trademarks Show Hybrid, PHEV Bound for Next-gen Lexus NX appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Due for a Revamp, Lexus NX Hints at V6 Power

With a new Lexus NX compact crossover expected to arrive next year, trademark applications on both sides of the Atlantic point to increased powertrain diversity — and more available power for U.S. customers. Overseas, at least, the little Lexus (but not the littlest Lexus) CUV stands to go even greener.

2018 Lexus NX 300h Review – In the Eye of the Beholder

  The luxury crossover realm is a weird one. The market has been built on the age-old plan of taking a more basic model and adding profitable flash. The problem lies when the base model is good enough for most buyers. Indeed, starting out with the best-selling non-truck in America means building something distinctive atop […] The post 2018 Lexus NX 300h Review – In the Eye of the Beholder appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Tesla’s Model 3 was the top-selling luxury vehicle in 2018

Without question, 2018 was a watershed year for Tesla. Despite the ongoing antics of Elon Musk and his entanglements with the SEC, Tesla in 2018 finally managed to turn a quarterly profit for the first time in company history. What's more, Tesla in a press release a few days ago revealed that the company almost delivered more vehicles in 2018 (245,240 to be exact) than it did "in all prior years combined." Of course, Tesla's Model 3 played an instrumental role in helping the company rea...

2019 Cadillac XT4: Baby Escalade? Or Something Else Entirely?

The 2019 Cadillac XT4 has strong competition but will enter the market with promising technology.  There are only two SUVs in Cadillac’s lineup. The full-size Escalade is still the default choice for rap artists, movie stars, or large families. The midsize XT5 is just right for the daily commute. But if you were hankering for a more affordable compact SUV with Cadillac-levels of luxury, the XT4 is the answer. Depending on your perception, the 2019 Cadillac XT4 is either a scaled-down version o...

2017 Mazda CX-5 Long-Term Update 4: Interior Design

The more time I spend with the CX-5, the more I think why get anything else? Consider my opinion biased, but if you drove one daily, or at least an extended period of time, I think you might feel the same. The CX-5 was the inspiration for a recent Motor Trend $40K challenge comparison between loaded-up mainstream cars versus base models from a luxury brand. Read all about it here, but spoiler alert, the CX-5 wins against a Lexus NX 300 with a sticker price $6,653 heftier. Long story short, it...

2018 BMW X3 Review

Two things are getting hard to find in a compact crossover — in new cars, generally: six cylinder engines — and a rear-drive-based layout. The BMW X3 still has both. It hasn’t gone four cylinder-only — as is becoming the trend, even in higher-end cars. It also has one more thing that its only functionally equivalent rival — the also-rear-drive-based (and also available with a six) Mercedes GLC hasn’t got: More room for cargo. In particular, more room behind its back seats — without having to fol...

Top 10 Best Mileage 2018 AWD Vehicles

Once upon a time, exceptional fuel economy and all-wheel-drive (AWD) were mutually exclusive automotive attributes. But with today’s highly efficient hybrid, turbo-diesel, and conventional drivetrains it’s a whole new ballgame.

Lexus Is Pretty Confident Buyers Will Go Green If They Don’t Have to Pay the Price

As we told you last fall, Lexus took a hatchet to the price of its hybrid NX crossover for 2018, greatly narrowing the gap between it and its NX300 sibling.
