What a success story Lexus has been. Toyota created it back in 1989 as a luxury division to rival Mercedes-Benz in America, and it succeeded spectacularly. 

Lexus may have had less impact in the UK but its range of premium saloons, coupés, convertibles and SUVs has attracted a loyal ownership. Recently the range was extended downward to include the CT 200h - a rival for BMW's 1 Series.
