2021 Lexus LS facelift finally adds a damn touchscreen

We can’t wait to see this flashy new paint job in person.

It’s hard to believe the latest generation of Lexus LS is already ready for a mid-cycle refresh, but time sure is flying these days. Lexus’ big-body sedan picks up some pretty solid updates for the 2021 model year, including one piece of modernization that is sorely, sorely needed.

Lexus on Tuesday unveiled the facelifted 2021 LS sedan. It’s worth noting that this is a global debut, and we have not yet received any materials specific to the US-spec LS, which Lexus said should come later this summer.

2020 Lexus UX 250h review: Space is at a premium

The UX is quite an attractive little thing.


Antuan Goodwin/Roadshow

The 2020 Lexus UX 250h makes a very strong first impression. The sharply styled exterior design looks amazing — especially in my example’s cadmium orange paint — and the hybrid’s generous fuel economy claims are worth a double take. Yet it’s hard to fall in love with Lexus’ smallest model.

  • Stylish design, high-quality interior materials
  • Excellent suite of standard driver aids
  • Android Auto joins Apple CarPlay for 2020 model year

Don’t Like

  • Very little cargo space, even for a compact
  • Lexus Remote Touch controller isn’t great

2020 Lexus GX 460 review: What’s old is cool again

Big grille aside, you have to admit the GX 460 looks pretty butch.


Steven Ewing/Roadshow

The GX 460 is the oldest product in Lexus’ lineup, but it found its way back into the spotlight. With overlanding gaining popularity in recent years, the GX is enjoying newfound stardom thanks to its easy-to-modify architecture, legit four-wheel-drive chops and high-quality interior. There are lifted examples all over Car Twitter. Lexus’ ancient SUV is once again cool.

Like

  • Outstanding off-road performance
  • Plush, quiet, high-quality cabin
  • Plenty of room for passengers and cargo
  • Lots of standard safety tech

Don’t Like

  • Really old multimedia interface
  • V8

2021 Lexus IS sport sedan looks new, is really just a face-lift


Lexus

Lexus unveiled the 2021 IS sport sedan on Monday, and while it looks sharper and fresher than the current IS, don’t let the looks fool you — it’s essentially a major face-lift, riding on a revised version of the same platform and using a near-identical interior.

It does look pretty great, though. Every exterior body panel is new, at least, and even the door glass doesn’t seem to be carried over from the 2020 model. The new IS has a lower sharklike front end with an even larger and more complex spindle grille than before, and F Sport
