2014 Lexus CT Will Debut At 2013 Guangzhou Motor Show

Lexus is all set to showcase a new model at an upcoming show. Can you guess the name? Well, it is the 2014 Lexus CT 200h which is confirmed to make its debut at the 2013 Guangzhou Motor Show in China on Nov. 21. Back in 2010, when Lexus first introduced the CT, it was the world’s first full hybrid luxury compact car. Being a 2014 model year CT, Lexus had to bring in some improvements and new features and it certainly have. The 2014 model of the compact luxury hybrid receives a new Lexus “spindle grille,” one of several dynamic and sophisticated exterior styling changes implemented for 2014 model year.

Along with the signature grille you would also see newly designed alloy wheels and a revised rear appearance with a more horizontal structure. Keeping the curiosity right in place, Lexus has not disclosed any further but promises to do



Lexus LF-NX Concept To Premiere At Tokyo Auto Show With 2.0 L Petrol

A while back at the Frankfurt Motor Show, Lexus showcased its radically styled crossover concept, the LF-NX. The automaker promoted the car as a mid-sized urban centric hybrid crossover ready to take on the young generation of buyers. Shortly after the unveiling there was a huge wave of criticism on the car’s design as the styling was something that we had never seen before. Now at the upcoming 2013 Tokyo Motor Show, Lexus is going to present the car in a new version. We do not want to mislead here, but the new version does not mean a restyled LF-NX concept.

In fact the styling will remain the same but the powertrain will be replaced with a 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine. Alongside the new engine there are a handful bodily changes too – for instance, compared to the model showcased at Frankfurt, the new turbo model will have a lower

Lexus GS 450h 2013

Lexus GS 450h 2013 While the new GS 450h continues to pay homage to two different masters, Lexus has, from the outset, done a better job at splitting the difference. With an entirely new V6 engine and revised hybrid system, the 2013 model has remarkably improved fuel economy, while sacrificing just a bit on the raw performance side. According to Lexus, the new model will be rated at 31 mpg combined (29/34 city/highway), an improvement of eight miles per gallon over the old 2011 model. Do the math and that’s a 35-percent improvement, which seems like a pretty good tradeoff for less than half a second in 0-60 time.

By Lexus’ stopwatch, the 2013 GS 450h does 0-60 miles per hour in 5.6 seconds, compared to 5.2 seconds for the old GS hybrid. The 2011 GS was offered with three engine choices: A 303-horsepower 3.5-liter V6, a 342-hp 4.6-liter V8,
