What's New for 2022: Lexus
Lexus is almost there when it comes to modern technology. It debuts a new touchscreen infotainment system and user interface on the redesigned 2022 Lexus NX that will spread to all Lexus models and replace a dated mishmash of multimedia iterations. In more other 2022 models, the current interface upgrades to touchscreens, but not at the sacrifice of the tried and true CD player.
Lexus Teammate limited hands-free driving system represents the other technological evolution for Lexus in model year 2022. Available only on the 2022 Lexus LS 500h hybrid sedan, the driver-assist system competes with GM's Super Cruise and Tesla's Autopilot to enable sustained hands-free driving on limited highways. In beta testing of the system, we found it lacked the confidence of Super Cruise and the daring of Autopilot, and the driver-monitor camera couldn't see past polarized sunglasses. Lexus has had time to tweak it before its rollout this fall.

Most Fun to Drive: Lexus' F performance models will have you grinning from ear to ear thanks to their high-revving V-8 engines and excellent handling. Current eight-cylinder F models include the RC F and the new IS500 F Sport Performance model.
Most Popular: Since its debut in the late 1990s, the Lexus RX SUV has remained the brand's best-selling model.
Best Fuel Economy: An efficient four-cylinder hybrid system puts the ES 300h sedan at the top of Lexus' lineup when it comes fuel economy, achieving 43/44 mpg city/highway. The hybrid UX 250h is the brand's most fuel-efficient SUV, getting 43/41 mpg.

Lexus Outlines Changes Coming to its Models for 2021
Recently, we reported on Toyota’s presentation of its model lineup for the 2021 model-year. Now it’s the turn of the luxury division Lexus to apply the spit and shine to its sedans and SUVs that consumers will find at dealers in the coming year. As you'll see, not all models are benefiting from changes, but some have significant modifications.

Here’s a rundown of what Toyota's luxury division has been concocting.
2021 Lexus UX 250h Black Edition
With the UX 250h models, a two-tier configuration in the cargo area improves capacity by 26%. New colours are also on the program for 2021.
