Contributed quality and luxury vehicles in the country.

Lexus is a Japanese car brand that is driven by its commitment to provide the best luxurious automotive lifestyle in the world. When Lexus came to the country in 2009, the Japanese carmaker knew that it had to be at the top of its game as Filipino car buyers have deep appreciation towards the brand they patronize.

As such, Lexus opened its first dealership in Bonifacio Global City the same year it arrived in the country. Lexus Manila is built to provide an ultra-luxurious car buying experience with the way the dealership is purposely designed, integrating a Zen Garden interior with natural landscaping.

The first Lexus vehicles offered in the local market in 2009 were the LS luxury flagship sedan, ES midsize sedan, RX midsize luxury SUV, LX flagship luxury SUV, IS compact sports sedan, and GS midsize sedan. All Lexus vehicles were deliberately chosen to advance its name that offers quality and luxury.

In 2011, Lexus’ CT line was introduced in the local market. The CT line is the brand’s line of luxury hatchbacks. What makes Lexus’ CT line extraordinary at that time is the fact that it is among the first luxury models to be sold in the country with a hybrid drivetrain.

2012 was an exciting year for Lexus as it launched the reputable LFA supercar. The Lexus LFA is an iconic 2-seater sports car that only had a two-year run in the industry. Under the hood, the Lexus LFA is powered by a 4.8-liter V10 engine good for 552 hp and 480 Nm of torque.

Lexus’s brand grew significantly in the country from 2014 to 2018 as it introduced more vehicles for different mobility needs such as the RC F performance coupe, NX compact luxury SUV, GS F performance sedan, LC coupe, and UX compact luxury crossover. And in 2020, Lexus managed to introduce the LM luxury van which seamlessly becomes a best-seller.

Luxury car brand Lexus knows that Filipino car buyers have expectations especially for its cars that come with relatively expensive price tags. This is why Lexus continues to deliver superior quality products not only in its lineup but also in the overall customer experience and after-sales services.

Rex started off his career in the aviation industry before entering Philkotse as a staff writer. Two things excite him the most: first is staying up to speed with the latest news in the industry that uses engines as their heart and soul. The second is imparting them in a well-detailed manner. His passion for anything with wheels started when he was young – from Tamiyas to family-friendly sedans, and anything in between.

Someday, Rex only wishes to drive on random highways with friends in a third-gen Mitsubishi Delica with aftermarket sunroofs, if he couldn’t get the Starwagon Super Exceed edition.
