Buy a Lexus: Your 2019 Lexus Buying Guide
Did you know that Lexus was once the best-selling premium car brand in the U.S. for 11 years in a row? The Japanese luxury brand, which produces smooth and stable rides, is a favorite among car enthusiasts.
Lexus has a wide variety of car types, including everything from coupes, SUVs, and hybrids, to their classic sedan. And although they’ve made a name in luxury since the 80s, they offer a selection of semi-luxury vehicles to fit a range of budgets.
Are you wondering, “Should I buy a Lexus?” We say yes!
Now, we might seem biased, but it’s for a good reason. We’ll prove it to you here in this exclusive 2019 buying guide!
The Classic Sedan
Sedans are perhaps the biggest contender when it comes to popularity. The Lexus sedan has been a staple of the company for many years, giving them a name for dependability and luxury.
Sedan options are the following:
- ES and ES Hybrid
- GS and GS Hybrid
- GS F
- LS and LS Hybrid
These models pack a punch. Let’s look at the 2019 IS, for example.
This ground-hugging, head-turning vehicle—under $40k—has an eight-speed direct-shift transmission and a turbo engine. It can get up to 30 miles per gallon in the city. It’s also available in sports editions for those who crave that speed!
Buy it in almost any color, from white pearl to ultrasonic blue.
The Sturdy SUV
If you’re more into sports utility vehicles, Lexus has you covered there, too. They offer at least six different models of SUV, three of which are available as hybrids. Not only will your seating and cargo capacity grow, but your off-roading capabilities increase!
Let’s take a look at the Lexus NX.
This car, which sold over 62,000 in 2018, made the top 10 list of best-selling luxury vehicles. It even became the second-best-selling car that Lexus offers!
Some of its key features include:
- Brake assist
- A back-up camera for increased safety
- 28 mpg on the highway
- 235 horsepower
- An internal navigation system
Today, there’s no excuse not to have GPS, cameras, and brake assist in your SUV! We offer it all for under $36,000.
The Cool Coupe
Coupes are an excellent choice for those who don’t have a lot to transport. If you’re a single male or female that doesn’t tote a lot of baggage, a sleek coupe is perfect for you.
This two-door option is available at Lexus in four different styles: LC, LC Hybrid, RC, and RC F.
If you’ve got a larger budget, the 2019 LC Hybrid is a force to be reckoned with. Its ergonomic shape and sharp edges invoke images of cutting through wind, moving gracefully through curving mountain roads. The coupe hugs the corners, its tire clenching to the gravel on the ground.
Sounds amazing, right?
This vehicle, starting at $96,810, offers the following amazing features:
- 354 horsepower
- 35 mpg on the highway
- 0-60 mph in under 5 seconds—4.7, to be exact
- Leather seating
- A modern, enticing design
- Bragging rights

The Eco-Friendly Hybrid
Lexus offers hybrid upgrades for many of its models. They are a leading innovator in hybrid production for luxury vehicles. Any of the following eight models are available as hybrids:
These vehicles range from the SUV to the sedan. They range in price from $34,000 to $96,000. Highway mpg can even reach up to 44 with specific models.
What exactly are you paying for when you go electric, though?
- Exceptional fuel efficiency
- Reduced emissions
- Solid reliability
If this sounds like something you’d enjoy, check out our large selection of eco-friendly options.
And last but not least—the performance vehicle. As if you needed another reason to go luxury!
There are four different performance models in the Lexus inventory: RC F, GS F, LC, and LC Hybrid. Let’s take a look at the GS F model.
When you invest in a GS F performance model, what do you get?
- A V6 cylinder engine
- 27 mpg on the highway
- Heating and cooling leather seats
- A sunroof
- Internal navigation
- Back-up cameras
- Premium surround sound
- Many safety features, such as lane-keeping assist and rain-sensing wipers
And not to mention, the increased capacity for speed!
Performance cars, explicitly designed to “go fast,” provide not just the power for high speeds but also the braking system to support them. If you’re going to go fast, make sure you have something in place to slow you down, too.
And it’s all done without exceeding a sticker price of $60,000 (for the GS F model). Try to top that!
These performance vehicles offer awesome perks both small and large. From the leather-wrapped steering wheel to the adaptive cruise control, you’ll be driving in safety and style with this ride!
